MAY 9 | 7:30 p.m. CT | Richland Community College (Field 10); Dallas, Texas

NTX Rayadoes (Texas) 2, Fort Worth Vaqueros (NPSL) 1 A.E.T.
NTX Rayados of the North Texas Premier Soccer Association's Division 1A hosted their first ever Open Cup match in the tournament proper as they welcomed Open Cup newcomers Fort Vaqueros across the Metroplex. The teams traded early goals and Fort Worth's Marko Jovanovic denied a NTX penalty just before half to keep the match level. A feisty second half saw the score stay 1-1 and the game seemed headed to extra time. But five minutes from full time, Christian Okeke snagged the winner for Rayados, who held on for the 2-1 win. Rayados will host the OKC Energy in the Second Round.
