A look at Sounders FC’s Open Cup history

“We definitely want to get our title back.”

Those were the words of Sounders FC’s Lamar Neagle heading into the team’s opener in the 2014 U.S. Open Cup. Three-time tournament champion Seattle enters the knockout-style competition Wednesday as a heavy favorite against amateur team PSA Elite in the fourth round.
