The Third Qualifying Round schedule of the 2023 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup on Nov. 19-20 was released by U.S. Soccer on Wednesday.

It is the penultimate phase of Open Division Qualifying after 36-game Second Qualifying Round that was contested on Oct. 15-16.

The 2021 National Amateur Cup-champion Lansdowne Yonkers FC host Oyster Bay United FC in a match between two of the competition’s in-form sides that both advanced to the Second Round Proper last year. The men from Yonkers have yet to concede a goal in two emphatic wins and the Long Islanders of Oyster Bay knocked out Queensboro FC II in the Second Qualifying Round.

Massachusetts’ two remaining combatants will meet in Randolph. Brockton United FC, which reached the 2022 Open Cup Proper via the Open Division Qualifying path, take on Worcester-based Unations, who have come this far thanks in part to a forfeit in the Second Qualifying Round.

In Pennsylvania, Vereinigung Erzgebirge, which hasn’t conceded a goal in qualifying, will host a home game for the third consecutive time at its long-time homebase in Warminster. They will take on the 2018 National Amateur Cup runners-up West Chester United SC, which is always a handful on the amateur scene and are coming off a 4-0 rout of the United German Hungarians.

There are three Third Qualifying Round games in Florida, venue for the recently concluded 2022 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Final which saw local MLS side Orlando City defeat USL Championship contenders Sacramento Republic. Among the three Sunshine State contests, Open Cup regulars Miami United FC and Club de Lyon will look to keep up their outstanding form with both coming off strong showings in the previous round.

Two of the California-based games in the western side of the schedule have the makings of qualifying classics. Orange County FC – reigning UPSL national champions and 2019 Open Cup underdog heroes – are up against 2022 Open Cup participants Escondido FC. In the Bay Area, Inter San Francisco, out of the city’s historic SFSFL, have yet to concede a goal in two qualifiers, aim to keep up the momentum with a home test against Davis Legacy FC.

In the Open Division hotbed of Texas, 2022 Open Cup participants D’Feeters Kicks SC of Dallas meet Houston’s D10 Lions.
