Stuart Sharp Names U.S. Paralympic Roster for 2014 America Cup in Canada

CHICAGO (Sept. 16, 2014) – The U.S. Paralympic National Team is traveling to Canada for the 2014 America Cup, which runs Sept. 19-26 at the University of Toronto Pan Am Fields. U.S. PNT head coach Stuart Sharp named a 14-player roster for this event as the team flies into Toronto today.

“It’s exciting after six months of focused preparation to be finally taking the USPNT into a major championship,” Sharp said. “It’s going to be a tough group to get out of with the world’s on-form side Brazil, and the unpredictable but talented Mexico side in there with us, but we are confident we can get the results that matter and move on to the next stage of the competition.”

The USA will open against Mexico on Saturday, Sept. 20, and then face Brazil on Monday, Sept. 22, in Group B play. Group A includes host side Canada, Argentina and Venezuela.

Following the group stage, the group winners will face the opposite group runner-up in the semifinals on Wednesday, Sept. 24. The event concludes with three placement games on Friday, Sept. 26 – a fifth-place game, consolation final (third-place game) and the final.

All 14 players were part of Sharp’s domestic training camp in mid-August in Chula Vista, California. Earlier this year, the PNT took second place at the ninth International Trophy of 7-A-Side Football in Barcelona, Spain.

“There have been a lot of changes to the squad, both in players and philosophy, in the past few months,” Sharp said. “However, the settling process, although short, has been successful and we are now ready to challenge ourselves against the best the Americas Region has to offer. It is an absolute privilege to be leading the squad as its head coach into this competition and I am confident that the players who will be wearing the U.S. jersey will give everything possible to do their nation proud.”

Roster by Position:
GOALKEEPERS (2): Alex Hendricks (Columbus, Ohio), Keith Johnson (Houston, Texas)
DEFENDERS (4): Chris Ahrens (Baldwinsville, N.Y.), Bryce Boarman (Colorado Springs, Colo.), Shea Cassidy (Buena Park, Calif.), Kevin Hensley (Memphis, Tenn.)
MIDFIELDERS (6): Tyler Bennett (Wadsworth, Ohio), David Garza (Chula Vista, Calif.), Daniel Hoffman (Reisterstown, Md.), Seth Jahn (Tampa, Fla.), Gavin Sibayan (Colorado Spring, Colo.), Marthell Vazquez (Long Beach, Calif.)
FORWARDS (2): Michael Moore (Plano, Texas), Rene Renteria (San Fernando, Calif.)

U.S. Open Cup Scoring Leaders Put Entire Focus on Title Opportunity

It is only fitting that the finalists for the 2014 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup also have the top two scorers in the tournament’s modern history.

Philadelphia Union striker Sebastien Le Toux, the top scorer with 14 goals, will go up against Seattle Sounders FC forward Kenny Cooper who is tied for second with 13 tallies, when both teams face each other on Tuesday in the U.S. Open Cup Final at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania (7:30 p.m. ET, GolTV).

Tuesday’s game, however, is entirely focused on the trophy and far less about who is leading that scoring race.

“I want him to score two goals, but we win 3-2,” Le Toux said. “So he passes in front of me and we win the Cup.

“The fact that we are both leading scorers is a nice thing, but it’s not what we want. We are both looking at the trophy right now and we want to get it no matter what.”

For both forwards, their professional paths crossed once before when they were New York Red Bulls teammates in 2012. Cooper was the team’s leading scorer that year with 18 goals in MLS play. Le Toux had a down season with five goals between Vancouver and New York that year, but he has found his scoring touch again this season with the Union.

“Seba’s been doing great this year,” Cooper said. “We met each other a long time ago in Dallas and had the opportunity to play with each other in New York a couple years ago. He’s a great guy and a great player. I’m happy for his success and the great form he’s in right now.”

Cooper is in search of his first U.S. Open Cup crown while Le Toux is in search for his second. The French forward assisted Roger Levesque’s game-winning goal in the 2009 U.S. Open Cup Final as the Major League Soccer expansion side Seattle Sounders FC defeated host D.C. United 2-1 at RFK Stadium.

“It’s a competition that I’ve won one time before, so it’s very important,” Le Toux said. “I feel lucky to have won a final five years ago and I just hope to win again. It’ll be difficult, but we’ll try to be ready.”

Sigi Schmid

Along with the title, the U.S. Open Cup winner also will be rewarded with a spot in the CONCACAF Champions League, a familiar competition for Seattle after participating in 2012-13.

“Champions League is a competition that we’ve been in in the past. We enjoy that competition and look forward to it,” Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid said. “Getting knocked out in the semis [against Santos Laguna] the last time around gave us a taste of how close we can get to the final game. Being able to eliminate a team from Mexico (Tigres UANL) was something that was special at the time. But that’s far in the future.”

For Philadelphia-area native and Union interim head coach Jim Curtin, a two-time winner of the U.S. Open Cup, this year’s tournament carries more significance in his eyes.

“It’s something that means a lot to me, being from this city,” Curtin said. “To do it here would be special. It’s different than a player. I’ve won this competition twice as a player and I lost it once as a player, but as a coach it carries a little more weight. As a player you’re a little more selfish in your thinking and that it’s the team and the individuals. Sure, it’s for the city as well. But being from here, I feel more of the weight, not to let the city down. We want to win.”

Academy Alumni: Crew’s Trapp Tallies First MLS Goal

Crew Soccer Academy alum Wil Trapp started off a Columbus Crew rally with his first Major League Soccer goal to lead his side to a 2-2 road draw against the Houston Dynamo on Saturday at BBVA Compass Stadium. Following the weekend, the Crew sits at the fifth MLS Playoff spot with 37 points and a 9-9-10 record.

The second-year midfielder Trapp, formerly of the U.S. Under-20 Men’s National Team and the 2013 U.S. Soccer Young Male Athlete of the Year, cut Houston’s lead to 2-1 in the 48th minute with a 25-yard strike off of a throw-in. Trapp’s shot, which is up for MLS Goal of the Week, snuck just inside the inside of the right post, and Columbus maintained its momentum with an Ethan Finlay header six minutes later.

Yedlin Assists Twice for Sounders: Seattle Sounders FC Academy alum and 2014 FIFA World Cup member DeAndre Yedlin assisted two goals, including Andy Rose’s stoppage-time game-winner, to lead Seattle to a 3-2 win against Real Salt Lake on Friday. Yedlin’s other assist was on Lamar Neagle’s 38th-minute tally. Yedlin recorded multiple assists in a game for the first time in his young career.

DeAndre Yedlin

Zardes Scores No. 15 for Galaxy: LA Galaxy Academy product Gyasi Zardes added to his banner season with his 15th goal of the season during the LA Galaxy’s 2-2 draw against the Montreal Impact last Wednesday. Zardes’ 59th-minute score cut Montreal’s lead to 2-1 before Alan Gordon notched the equalizer in the 64th minute. Zardes recently set the record for most goals by an MLS homegrown player, breaking the previous mark of 13 held by New England Revolution Academy alum Diego Fagundez.

Rowe Rallies Revs: Former Crossfire Premier midfielder Kelyn Rowe helped rally the New England Revolution to a 2-1 win against the Montreal Impact on Saturday in Foxborough. Just 10 minutes after Montreal gained a 1-0 lead, Rowe responded with a long-range strike past Troy Perkins for the equalizer, followed by Lee Nguyen’s winner. Rowe has been in top form with two goals and three assists over his past five matches.

Elsewhere, former Andromeda Academy midfielder Dillon Powers scored his fifth goal of the season during the Colorado Rapids’ 2-2 road draw against the Portland Timbers on Sunday, and Concorde Fire product Chris Duvall earned his first MLS assist, setting up a Thierry Henry goal during the New York Red Bulls’ 2-2 draw against the Philadelphia Union.

Two of the tournament’s top goal scorers will go head-to-head in this year’s title match. Philadelphia’s Sebastien Le Toux is the all-time goal scoring leader in the modern era with 14 tallies.

PHILADELPHIA ROSTER NOTES

  • Union forward Sebastien Le Toux has scored three goals in the 2014 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. He is tied with 10 other players for fifth in this year’s tournament, and his free kick tally in the quarterfinals gave him 14th all-time to surpass the previous record of 13 he shared with David Bulow, Johnny Menyongar and Jaime Moreno.
  • Le Toux was a member of Seattle Sounders FC’s 2009 U.S. Open Cup-winning team, assisting Roger Levesque’s 86th-minute goal that gave Seattle a 2-0 lead. The goal proved to be the game-winner as D.C. United’s Clyde Simms scored in the waning moments during Seattle’s 2-1 victory.
  • Rookie Pedro Ribeiro and Le Toux each scored a goal this past weekend to rally the Union to a 2-2 draw against the New York Red Bulls in MLS play on Saturday at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania.

SEATTLE ROSTER NOTES

  • With his brace during Seattle’s 6-0 semifinal victory against the Chicago Fire on Aug. 13, Kenny Cooper moved into a tie for second place on the all-time goal scoring list in the modern era with David Bulow, Johnny Menyongar and Jaime Moreno. Cooper only trails the Philadelphia Union’s Sebastien Le Toux (14 goals).
  • Osvaldo Alonso, Brad Evans and Zach Scott were rostered members of the Sounders’ 2009 championship team. Alonso played the full 90 minutes and Evans was a second-half sub as Seattle defeated D.C. United 2-1 on Sept. 2, 2009, at RFK Stadium. The Sounders became the second MLS expansion side to win the Open Cup title (the other expansion team being the 1998 Chicago Fire).
  • In 2010, Alonso once again logged 90 minutes and Scott was an unused sub as the Sounders earned their second straight U.S. Open Cup, overcoming a first-half deficit en route to a 2-1 victory on Oct. 5, in front of 31,311 at Qwest Field in Seattle. (Sounders vs. Columbus Crew Highlights – Oct. 5, 2010)
  • Alonso scored in the sixth minute of stoppage time in the 2011 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Final to cap off Seattle’s 2-0 win on Oct. 4, 2011, against the Chicago Fire for the Sounders’ third-straight title. A total of 35,615 fans were in attendance at CenturyLink Field. Outside back Leonardo Gonzalez and midfielders Evans and Lamar Neagle started and played the full 90 in that game as Seattle’s defense allowed only six shots, four on goal.

U.S. OPEN CUP GOAL SCORERS

  • Philadelphia Union: Sebastien Le Toux (3), Andrew Wenger (2), Conor Casey (1), Maurice Edu (1), Amobi Okugo (1)
  • Seattle Sounders FC: Kenny Cooper (5), Andy Rose (2), Osvaldo Alonso (1), Chad Barrett (1), Brad Evans (1), Aaron Kovar (1), Obafemi Martins (1), Sean Okoli (1), Marco Pappa (1), Zach Scott (1)

HOW THEY GOT TO THE FINAL
Philadelphia Union

  • Fourth Round (June 17): Philadelphia Union 3, Harrisburg City Islanders (USL PRO) 1 (OT): The Union had an ominous start to this year’s tournament, trailing 1-0 late in the first half to the USL PRO side. Maurice Edu scored a clutch equalizer in the 89th minute, and Andrew Wenger carried the Union with two goals in overtime for the two-goal victory at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania. (recap)
  • Fifth Round (June 24): Philadelphia Union 2, New York Cosmos (NASL) 1 (OT): Sebastien Le Toux scored two goals, including the winner in the 115rth minute, to escape an upset bid against the New York Cosmos. The Cosmos led early in the second half from Alessandro Noselli, but Le Toux responded immediately to force overtime. ( recap)
  • Quarterfinal (July 8): Philadelphia Union 2, New England Revolution (MLS) 0: Sebastien Le Toux broke the all-time goal scoring record in tournament history with his 14rth tally (and third in this year’s tournament) and Conor Casey scored the early game-winner at PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania. ( recap)
  • Semifinal (Aug. 12): Philadelphia Union 1, FC Dallas (MLS) 1 (Philadelphia wins 4-3 in shootout): Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath came up with two saves during a penalty kick shootout to lead Philadelphia to the victory at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas. Amobi Okugo scored his first goal in Open Cup play early in the first half, only to see FC Dallas respond with Fabian Castillo’s equalizer the closing minutes of regulation. After overtime, the match went to PKs, where MacMath turned away shots by Blas Perez and Victor Ulloa. The Union’s Sheanon Williams, Vincent Nogueira, Cristian Maidana and Maurice Edu each converted their attempts for the win. ( recap)

Seattle Sounders FC

  • Fourth Round (June 18): Seattle Sounders FC 5, PSA Elite (USASA) 0: Sounders homegrown player Aaron Kovar drew the penalty that led to Brad Evans’ opening goal in the 22nd minute and assisted a Zach Scott goal as Seattle rolled past PSA Elite, out-shooting the USASA side 21-1. Kenny Cooper recorded a brace and Sean Okoli capped off the scoring in the 84th minute. (recap)
  • Fifth Round (June 24): Seattle Sounders FC 1, San Jose Earthquakes (MLS) 1 (Seattle wins 4-1 in shootout): After San Jose’s Steven Lenhart gave his side a lead in the 24rth minute, Kenny Cooper equalized just two minutes later. Both sides stayed even through regulation and overtime, and it was all Seattle with Gonzalo Pineda, Marco Pappa, Brad Evans and Lamar Neagle each converted their penalty kicks. San Jose’s Alan Gordon missed his attempt and Seattle goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann saved JJ Koval’s attempt. ( recap)
  • Quarterfinal (July 9): Seattle Sounders FC 3, Portland Timbers FC (MLS) 1 (OT): Kenny Cooper scored the game-winning goal in the 111th minute and Marco Pappa added an insurance goal five minutes later at the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, Washington. Osvaldo Alonso broke a scoreless deadlock in the 69th minute, but Portland forced overtime when Darlington Nagbe equalized late in second-half stoppage time. (recap)
  • Semifinal (Aug. 13): Seattle Sounders FC 6, Chicago Fire (MLS) 0: Andy Rose and Kenny Cooper each tallied two goals as Seattle coasted past the Fire, a four-time champion of the U.S. Open Cup, at the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, Washington. Chad Barrett scored a sixth-minute goal against his former Chicago team for the early lead and the game-winning tally. Second-half sub Obafemi Martins also added a goal in the 79th minute before Cooper put the match well out of reach with back-to-back scores in the final 10 minutes. (recap)

PENNSYLVANIA OPEN CUP ROOTS: Only the states of New York (26) and California (15) have fielded more U.S. Open Cup champions than Pennsylvania in the tournament’s 101-year history. The Philadelphia Union is one victory away from changing the top-two picture. Pennsylvania has been the home of 14 previous Open Cup title winners, led by the storied Bethlehem Steel teams that racked up five titles in 1915, 1916, 1918, 1919 and 1926. Other Pennsylvania-based champions included four-time winner Philadelphia Ukrainian Nationals (1960, 1961, 1963 and 1966), two-time champion Pittsburgh Harmarville (1952 and 1956), Gallatin (1942), Philadelphia German-American SC (1936) and Pittsburgh Morgan (1949).

ABOUT THE U.S. OPEN CUP: The Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, recognized as U.S. Soccer’s National Club Championship, is an annual competition open to all amateur and professional soccer teams affiliated with U.S. Soccer.
