Rush Alum James Riley helped the Seattle Sounders capture their third straight title in the US Open Cup on Tuesday night as Seattle beat the Chicago Fire 2-0. Riley, an alum of both Colorado Rush and Rush Pikes Peak, has been a member of the Sounders for the last three seasons and has been a part of all three US Open Cup winning teams.
James Riley is a great example to our young players that hard work and dedication pays off. He has made a great contribution to the game at all levels and it is great to see him be rewarded for his time and commitment to the game.
The U.S. Open Cup is a knockout tournament in American soccer. The tournament is the oldest ongoing American soccer competition and is presently open to all United States Soccer Federation affiliated teams, from amateur adult club teams to the professional clubs of Major League Soccer.
