THREE HUSKIES ADVANCE IN US OPEN CUP

|
Three members of the Northern Illinois men's soccer team, Jordan Godsey, Isaac Kannah and Sean Totsch, helped the Chicago Fire Premier Development League team to a 1-0 victory over the Croatian Eagles on Tuesday night in the First Round of the U.S. Open Cup.

Kannah scored the lone goal for the Fire while Godsey made seven saves en route to the shutout. With the victory, the Fire PDL team advances to play the Dayton Dutch Lions of the USL Pro Division next Tuesday, May 22, at the Toyota Park Practice Field in Bridgeview, Ill., at 6 p.m.

In its 99th year, the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup is open to all affiliated amateur and professional teams in the United States. Should Godsey, Kannah, Totsch and the Fire PDL team defeat the Dayton Dutch Lions next Tuesday, they would be drawn to play against a Major League Soccer team in the Third Round of the U.S. Open Cup.
