New York City FC (MLS) 0, New York Cosmos (NASL) 1
New York Cosmos advanced to the U.S. Open Cup Round of 16 at the expense of New York City FC for the second consecutive year thanks to a 1-0 victory Wednesday night. Cosmos prevailed in a matchup of few chances and neither team created much during a tense derby that failed to come to life in the first 45 minutes. The game quickened in the second stanza but looked destined for extra time until the Cosmos struck late on. Midfielder Danny Szetela got on the end of a cross and headed home the decisive goal to send Cosmos through to the Round of 16 and NYCFC out of the competition.
