FC Motown crashed out of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup in one of the worst ways possible on Tuesday night.
The New Jersey-based side lost a two-goal lead in the second half at home.
In the first Open Cup game in 939 days and since 2019, West Chester United SC defeated FC Motown in extratime, 3-2, in the opening round of the competition at MSU Soccer Park in Montclair, N.J.
Jacob Gosselin broke a 2-2 tie as he scored off a Carter Burris feed in the 94th minute.
It looked like the hosts were going to run away with the match in the opening half.
Nerlin St. Vil had the honor of scoring the first goal of this year’s tournament in the 10th minute as he took advantage of a poor clearance and fired a shot into the lower right corner past goalkeeper Cameron Sanders.
Two minutes into first-half injury time, Joseph Fala doubled the hosts’ advantage, striking from outside the area.
West Chester, however, flipped the game on its head in the second half.
Levi Maruca cut into the lead, connecting for a spectacular goal from the corner of the box in the 56th minute before Blaise Milanek tallied the equalizer off a six-yard header in the 78th minute.
FC Motown played the final six minutes a man down after Fala was assessed his second yellow card in the 114th minute.
West Chester United will meet AC Syracuse Pulse (National Independent Soccer Association) in the second round in West Chester, Pa. on April 6 at 7 p.m. ET.
