Tuesday, May 24, 2011
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) -- Orr Barouch and Yamith Cuesta scored second-half goals to force a tie, and Scott Sealy's game-ending miss in penalty kicks gave the Chicago Fire a 5-4 shootout victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Tuesday in U.S. Open Cup qualifying play.
Marco Pappa, Cristian Nazarit, Barouch, Dominic Oduro and Daniel Paladini scored for Chicago in the penalty-kick phase after the teams ended 120 minutes of play tied at 2-all.
Chris Wondolowski, Ramiro Corrales, Khari Stephenson, Brandon McDonald hit their PKs for San Jose, but Sealy's sixth-round attempt caromed off the crossbar, down the ground and bounced harmlessly away.
