The New England Revolution suffered a shocking 4-3 upset loss at the hands of the USL Pro Division's Harrisburg City Islanders during their third-round 2012 U.S. Open Cup matchup on Tuesday night.

The New England Revolution lasted just one game in the 2012 U.S. Open Cup, falling 4-3 to the Harrisburg City Islanders of the USL Pro Division in their rain-delayed third round matchup on Tuesday night. The Revolution held a 3-0 lead at one point, but the City Islanders rallied back to force the game into penalty kicks.

Andrew Marshall scored in the fifth round of penalty kicks for Harrisburg to give his team the advantage. Goalkeeper Nick Noble stopped Benny Feilhaber on the Revolution's last attempt to seal the stunning upset.

Feilhaber gave New England a 3-0 lead in the second half, but Harrisburg came back with consecutive goals by J.T. Noone, Sainey Touray and Brian Ombiji. All of the game's regulation scoring took place in the second half. The City Islanders will play the New York Red Bulls in the fourth round of the Open Cup.
