La Máquina FC became the last-standing Open Division team in the US Open Cup by defeating fellow UPSL side LA Wolves on Wednesday night at Westminster High School in Westminster, CA. With that win La Máquina earned a Fourth Round match with LA Galaxy to take place on June 14 at the StubHub Center at 7:30 pm.
Ex Liga MX and Ascenso MX forward Edwin Borboa notched a brace and was La Máquina’s man of the match with goals scored in the 17th and 68th minutes. LA Wolves came out more intensely in the second half and had a flurry of goal scoring opportunities in the last 15 minutes of regulation time, but La Máquina was too resolute.
La Máquina has shutdown its opponents in each round of the 2016 US Open Cup, outscoring opposition 6-0, with 2-0 wins over Timbers U-23 (PDL), Sacramento Gold (NPSL) and LA Wolves (UPSL).
