Sacramento Republic FC (USL) 1, Reno 1868 FC (USL) 0
Canadian Men’s National Team member Keven Aleman scored his second goal in as many 2018 U.S. Open Cup matches to spur Sacramento Republic FC of the United Soccer League on to a road defeat of league rivals Reno 1868 FC at Greater Nevada Field. Recently-signed Reno 1868 FC goalkeeper Kyle Ihn made a number of tough saves to keep his team alive, but Aleman sent a left-footed free kick screaming into the top right corner to tally the game’s lone goal in the 69th minute for Republic FC, which survived eight minutes of added time to advance to the tournament’s Fourth Round for the fourth time in five years.
