Otherwise …

USL Pro Rocks the U.S. Open Cup
In the world of U.S. soccer, the United Soccer Leagues’ USL Pro is considered the third division league, though USL doesn’t really accept that view. So it’s kind of a big deal that the league advanced three teams into the final eight of the U.S. Open Cup.

One Season Winding Down, Others About to Begin
It's gotten dire for the Austin Aztex playoff hopes: They've earned just one point in their last seven games, and been shut out in their last three (all on the road). Now, of the eight games left in the season, they need to win six. They'll be looking to get on track at home this Sunday against fellow strugglers Minnesota Thunder. Strikers Gifton Noel-Williams and Kyle Brown are both out on red card suspensions, leaving Eddie Johnson and Sullivan Silva up front – but that's probably OK; those two have been their most productive attackers all year. 6pm Sunday, Aug. 16 at Nelson Field. Only two home games left after this one! The English Premier League kicks off this week; Aztex affiliate Stoke City hosts newly promoted Burnley on Saturday. It's on FSC tape-delayed at 1:30pm, and the Aztex are hosting a watch party at Cuatro's. Below: UT Longhorn preview, WCQ, WPS, and more . . .

Backs Against the Wall
The Austin Aztex dropped a pair of games in the Carolinas last week: 1-0 to Charleston and 3-0 to Carolina. No disgrace there – those are two of the top teams in the USL First Division – but their playoff chances are rapidly slipping away. Realistically, the Aztex need at least six wins in their last nine games to be in the hunt. The team plays at Rochester this Saturday, then returns home next weekend... In other USL news, the Puerto Rico Islanders advanced into the group stage of the CONCACAF Champions League for a second straight year, ousting the MLS' Toronto FC Tuesday night. The group stage will run Aug. 18-Oct. 22. Below: WC qualifying, WPS finale, and more
