New England Revolution (M.L.S.) 3, Rochester Rhinos (USL) 0
2016 Open Cup runners up New England Revolution earned an emphatic 3-0 win against Rochester Rhinos, the last non-M.L.S. club to win the competition. New England was quick to capitalize on a pair of yellow cards to Joe Farrell with Teal Bunbury converting a penalty in the 44th minute, despite Rhinos goalkeeper Tomas Gomez’ best effort. The Revs added goals in the 50th and 51st minute, first on a line-drive header by Donnie Smith. Seconds after, Zachary Herivaux capitalized on a second of substandard defending by cleaning up a rebound in his season debut. The Revolution continued to own possession with the man advantage, allowing the Rhinos their first corner a whopping 69 minutes into the match. With the win, New England advances to the Round of 16 for the fourth time in five years.
