PSA ELITE DEFEATS DOXA ITALIA FC TO WIN 2013 USASA REGION IV OPEN CUP
Ontario, CA (April 21, 2013) - PSA Elite defeated Doxa Italia, 4-1 in finals action today to capture the 2013 United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) Region IV Open Cup title.
Through their success in this weekend's tournament, held at the Ontario Soccer Park in Ontario, Calif. from April 19-21, PSA Elite and Doxa Italia locked up berths in the opening round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup competition. It is PSA's second straight visit to the U.S. Open Cup, while Doxa clinched their second berth in three years.
Through a weekend of generally high-scoring games, PSA had topped Doxa in opening day action with a 3-0 shutout. Last year's Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Cinderella team, Cal FC, started out hot with a pair of victories, but lost to Doxa on Saturday afternoon to miss out on making a return trip to the century-old tournament where they defeated the MLS' Portland Timbers to make it all the way to the fourth round. In the Region IV championship match, PSA Elite went into the second half with a 2-1 lead over Doxa, and then capped it with another pair of goals to take the victory.
The first round of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup is set to begin on May 14, 2013. For more information about the event, click here.
