Lodi News-Sentinel - - Quick Hits - By Kalin Ki­pling

In the 2017 U.S. Open Cup Round of 16 match, Sacra­mento Repub­lic FC couldn’t get on the board vs. Ma­jor League Soc­cer’s Los An­ge­les Galaxy.

While Sacra­mento top­pled MLS team Real Salt Lake 4-1 on June 14, the Galaxy proved to be too much of a chal­lenge Wed­nes­day night at StubHub Cen­ter in Car­son. Los An­ge­les won 2-0.

The Repub­lic fended off the Galaxy in the first half, but L.A. turned it up in the sec­ond. The Galaxy’s Ariel Las­siter scored off of a free kick in the 47th and Brad­ford Jamieson fol­lowed that up with a goal two min­utes later.

There were two un­der­dog wins in U.S. Open Cup play Wed­nes­day, how­ever: FC Cincin­nati topped the Chicago Fire, 3-1, and Mi­ami FC beat At­lanta United, 3-2.

The Galaxy now faces the San Jose Earthquakes in the quar­ter­fi­nals of the Open Cup on July 10.
