Last week in Open Cup

Charlotte defeated El Paso 0-1 on a 72nd minute goal in a second round US Open Cup match 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.

Player to watch – Darryl Roberts

He’s scored three goals in 2012 for Charlotte, good for fourth overall in USL PRO for goal totals this year. Roberts was selected by Toronto FC in the 2007 MLS Supplemental draft, but Roberts played overseas in Europe instead and never donned a jersey for the Reds.

USL PRO play

Charlotte is currently 2-7-2 in league play, good for ninth out of 11 teams. Charlotte lost its most recent match on Saturday 1-2 against Orlando City. Midfielder Christian Meza scored the lone goal of the match for Charlotte.

Open Cup history

Charlotte has never won back-to-back US Open Cup matches. It is 0-1 all-time against MLS teams, losing previously to Chivas USA.

The unknown voters behind the MLS Power Rankings dropped FC Dallas from No. 14 to No. 15 after its 1-1 draw vs Philadelphia in the Week Eleven rankings. Here's what the voters had to say:

Winless in their last five, winless away, a squandered home lead against punchless Philly, and a sports psychologist on the way. This is probably not how Schellas Hyndman had 2012 mapped out in the preseason.
