Louisville City FC is moving on to the “Round of 16” in this year’s Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.

The Boys in Purple beat the New England Revolution (MLS) 3-2 in front of over 5,000 fans at UofL’s Lynn Stadium on Tuesday evening.

LouCity FC midfielder Brian Ownby scored the game-winning goal in the 62nd minute of the match off an assist from George Davis IV. Ownby’s goal broke a 2-2 tie.

Ownby’s goal was also the only goal scored in the second half.

The first half featured four goals.

New England scored first, courtesy of Mark Segberg in the 5th minute of the match.

LouCity FC responded minutes later, as Oscar Jimenez found the back of the net in the 11th minute, scoring off a pass from Ownby.

Then, after the Revs took the lead via a LouCity own goal, the Boys in Purple came up with the equalizer in the 37th minute thanks to a Cameron Lancaster goal. Jimenez was credited with the assist.

LouCity FC will have to wait until Thursday morning to find out the club it will face next in the tournament.

Up next though on the overall schedule for LCFC will be a USL match against Bethlehem Steel FC. Kickoff is set for Saturday at 5 p.m. ET inside Goodman Stadium.
