Three Cal South affiliates are moving on to the Third Round of the 2018 US Open Cup Open Division Qualifiers after obtaining victories in the Second Round of Play last weekend. The three Southern California teams are part of the record-high of 108 amateur teams that entered the local qualifying round back in August.
Chula Vista FC, San Pedro Monsters and Buena Park FC will continue to represent Cal South and the SoCal Premier League in the Third Round of Play when the single-game elimination tournament kicks back up on November 18-19, 2017.
Chula Vista earned a 1-0 win over United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) side Valley United SC on Saturday at Heritage High School in North Hills. At the same time, the San Pedro Monsters swept SFV Scorpions SC 4-0 in Banning High School in Wilmington. On Sunday afternoon, Buena Park FC concluded play and earned their spot in the next round with a convincing 3-1 win over Santa Clarita Storm at John F. Kennedy High School in La Palma.
Last year, five Cal South affiliates moved on from the Open Division on to the tournament. LA Wolves FC represented Cal South in the oldest soccer tournament in the country, concluding their participation in the Third Round of action.
