Sounders will host U.S. Open Cup match after PSA Elite upset LA Galaxy II

Oh, Starfire we've missed you. - Steven Bisig-US PRESSWIRE

Amateur side outlasts Galaxy's USL side in penalty-kick shootout.

Oh Starfire, how we've missed you. For the first time since the semifinals of the 2012 U.S. Open Cup, the Seattle Sounders will be playing a competitive match at Starfire Sports Complex after PSA Elite pulled off an upset of LA Galaxy II on Wednesday. The Sounders are 17-0-0 all-time in Open Cup matches at Starfire, dating back to 2005.

If the Galaxy II had won, the Sounders would have had to travel to Southern California. Instead, the Sounders will host the amateur side in the fourth round of the Open Cup on June 18. Tickets will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. It will mark the second time in three years that the Sounders have played against an amateur team. In 2012, the Sounders beat Cal FC 5-0.

PSA Elite didn't necessarily play wonderfully, but they were good enough to keep the Galaxy II scoreless through 120 minutes and get the match to penalties. Once there, Galaxy II missed three straight penalties and were ousted 3-1 in the shootout.
