PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Rochester Rhinos’ Lamar Hunt/U.S. Open Cup journey has ended.
The New England Revolution, the 2016 runners-up, recorded a 3-0 win over the United Soccer League side in a fourth-round game Wednesday night.
The Revs advanced to the Round of 16 for the fourth time in five years.
The Rhinos fell to 1-6 all-time against the Revs. They haven’t beaten an MLS side since 2014.
New England was quick to capitalize two pair of yellow cards to Joe Farrell with Teal Bunbury converting a penalty in the 44th minute, despite Rhinos goalkeeper Tomas Gomez’ best effort.
The Revs added goals in the 50th and 51st minute, first on a line-drive header by Donnie Smith.
Seconds after, Zachary Herivaux capitalized on a second of substandard defending by cleaning up a rebound in his season debut.
The Revolution continued to own possession with the man advantage, allowing the Rhinos their first corner kick a 69 minutes into the match.
The Rhinos are the last non-Major League Soccer team to win the competition, in 1999.
Rochester’s first home match in two weeks will be against the Ottawa Fury on Saturday at 6:05 p.m.
