SAN JOSE–It was night for American Soccer tonight as The 2017 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup recommenced Wednesday night at Avaya Stadium. A lively evening crowd was treated to Round 4 between the NASL San Francisco Delta and the MLS San Jose Earthquakes.

The match started quick as the Quakes came up big early. Within the first seven minutes, two goals had bulged thte net. Courtesy of midfielder Jackson Yueill (4′) and midfielder Cordell Cato (6′) that lead to a 2-0 shutout for San Jose. Wasting very little time in the early part of the game Yueill the Quakes No. 6 Superdraft for 2017 found the back of the net scoring in less than four minutes and Cato followed with a goal for all the scoring in the match against San Francisco.

“Obviously it was a great start for the entire team. It was very important for us to go out and score. The free kick from Danny (Hoesen) hit off the wall and came right to me. I just saw the perfect opportunity. I couldn’t be happier in that moment. I’m just happy for that.” said Yueill of his goal.

“That goal made me more anxious to keep going. The next goal came and I was happy about that. After that we kept the ball and were able to stay composed. We didn’t risk too much after going up 2-0, which is really good from us. It was a good performance scoring two goals early.” Yueill said on how he set up the goal.

It was a sloppy night after that. While the Quakes were clearly dominant through out the match, it was a fun one to watch. Filled with spills and thrills (and yellow cards), Delta FC had opportunities until the very end. The Quakes next opponent for the Open Cup will be determined on Thursday night.

San Jose eases into the 5th round with a 2 – 0 victory. The Quakes have MLS league play agaInst Sporting Kansas City on Saturday at 5:45PM at Avaya Stadium catch staff writer Mark Andereason with all the coverage Saturday night.
