US Open Cup, Round 2

Round 1 begins after the qualifying round...

How are my Cinderella picks doing?

Here are my picks for each of the teams to get the farthest from each non-MLS division:
USL1: Rochester Rhinos (TBA)
USL2: Pittsburgh Riverhounds (First Round: At Des Moines Menace)
USL Developmental: Cocoa Expos (defeated by Roma 7-2 in Qualifying Round)
USASA: Salinas Valley Samba (Still Alive! Defeated the Cascade Surge on PKs in Qualifying!)

So before the first round, I've lost one team, but correctly picked another. Pittsburgh is clearly considered the lower seed. A win at Des Moines puts them on the road at Charleston Battery. I believe in the Yinzerhounds!
