Charlotte defeated El Paso 0-1 on a 72nd minute goal in a second round US Open Cup match last week at El Paso. Charlotte’s Nate Thornton was credited with the goal initially, but post-game both teams agreed it was an own-goal caused by El Paso. Charlotte has never won back-to-back US Open Cup matches. It is 0-1 all time against MLS teams, losing to Chivas USA.
