The 2010 National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) Champions Sacramento Gold meet Eureka’s North Coast Tsunami, Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. at River City High School in West Sacramento, in the second round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup qualifying tournament.
With the Gold’s 2-0 win over Real San Jose on March 10 and the Tsunami loss to Real San Jose last weekend by an identical score, a win, tie or loss by one goal puts the Gold through to the North Coast Division Final, for a birth to the Open Cup!
The Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup is the oldest ongoing national soccer competition in the United States. The top two tiers, Major League Soccer and the North American Soccer League, earn berths into the third and second round propers of the tournament respectively. The third, fourth and fifth tiers of the pyramid play in a series of qualification and state tournaments to determine the berths into the tournament. These teams will complete the 64-team field in the U.S. Open Cup.
Be there to see the Sacramento Gold earn its berth into the North Coast Division Final for a potential birth in the U.S. Open Cup!
