Successful US Open Cup 3rd Round for NASL, Crew to Face Indy Eleven

The third round of the 2014 US Open Cup belonged to the NASL as their entrants won 6 of 8 and out scored opponents 22-11. Head on over to for a full summary of round three as well as results (bracket can be found HERE.)

One of the biggest wins of the round was NASL's Indy Eleven trouncing USL Pro's Dayton Dutch Lions 5-2 with a hat trick from recent Montreal Impact loanee Blake Smith. Wasn't all Smith however, as players like 19 year old Ben Spencer, Mike Ambersley and Dylan Mares placed shot after shot on (a often stranded, but very good) Brad Stuver.

With the win Indy Eleven advance to the 4th round (where US based MLS teams enter) and travel east to Ohio to take on the Columbus Crew up in Akron, Ohio at FirstEnergy Stadium–Cub Cadet Field on June 17th.

Indy looked more impressive verses a team the Columbus Crew just faced a week earlier in a friendly. Should be a really exciting match.

Below is the Indy Eleven vs Dayton Dutch Lion match in it's entirety.

Goal Scoring:
26' Smith - Indy
30' Smith - Indy
43' Ambersley - Indy
46' Mares - Indy
66' Schoenfeld (penalty) - Dayton
76' Walker - Dayton
88' Smith - Indy
