HOW THEY GOT HERE: FC Dallas, Colorado Rapids Use Late Goals to Reach Round of 16 -

This year's match was set up by a pair of late goals for each team in the LHUSOC Fourth Round, allowing Dallas and Colorado to advance past lower-league opposition.


The Rapids were the home side against Dallas' USL affiliate, Oklahoma City Energy FC, but found themselves down 2-0 at halftime. However, Colorado rallied with three second-half goals to win the match. The winning goal was an 89th-minute header from Dennis Castillo, which was assisted by Plano-native Dillon Powers.


FC Dallas used an own goal in second-half stoppage time to defeat another USL side from Oklahoma, Tulsa Roughnecks FC.


Dallas took a first-half lead through Coy Craft, before a 59th-minute equalizer by Tulsa set up an exciting finish.


Michael Barrios, on as a substitute, created the winning moment with a low cross into the penalty box that was deflected by Tulsa defender Modou Jadama into his own net.
