Fire eliminate Rhinos from U.S. Open Cup

ROCHESTER, N.Y. --Diego Chaves scored in the 37th minute and the Chicago Fire of the MLS defeated the  Rhinos 1-0 Tuesday in the third round of the U.S. Open Cup at Sahlen's Stadium.

The Fire, who have allowed two goals in the last seven games, advance to the quarterfinals on July 12. 

The Rhinos dominated possession in the first half but a lapse on defense allowed Chicago to grab the lead late in the half.

Chicago midfielder Corben Bone sent a hard shot toward the box from 20 yards out. Goalkeeper Neal Kitson dove to punch the ball out, but sent it right to Chaves, who was unmarked at the top of the box. Chaves scored on a bouncing shot.
