Sounders-PSA Elite winner in Open Cup will face San Jose Earthquakes

The Sounders are halfway through a weeklong break for the World Cup, but they might have paid attention to some U.S. Open Cup action Wednesday.

In the annual knockout-style tournament, the San Jose Earthquakes held on for a 2-1 home win against the Sacramento Republic of the third-tier USL PRO to advance to the fifth round. It is there where they will await the winner of the Seattle-PSA Elite game coming up June 18 at a soldout Starfire Stadium.

Here are some updated scenarios for the future:

If the Sounders beat PSA Elite (as expected), they will host the Earthquakes on June 24, with kickoff at Starfire Stadium set for 7:30 p.m.

If the Sounders lose (which would be an epic upset against an amateur team), San Jose will host PSA Elite on June 24, with kickoff at Buck Shaw Stadium set for 7:30 p.m.

Something to mark on your calendar, perhaps.
