PORTLAND, Ore. — Michael Nanchoff and Jack Jewsbury scored and the Portland Timbers beat the Tampa Bay Rowdies 2-0 Wednesday night to reach the quarterfinals of the U.S. Open Cup.
Nanchoff scored in the ninth minute on a nifty left-footed volley into the right corner. Jewsbury, who subbed in during the second half, scored on a left-foot blast in the 55th.
Portland goalkeeper Milos Kocic had a relatively stress-free night with the Timbers outshooting Tampa 12-3.
The Rowdies of the lower-level North American Soccer League couldn't keep the magic going after shocking the Seattle Sounders in the third round.
The Timbers play at FC Dallas in the quarterfinals June 26.
