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.
