CARY, N.C. (AP)
Brian Shriver scored in the 88th minute, giving the Carolina RailHawks a 2-1 upset over the MLS champion Los Angeles Galaxy in the third round of the U.S. Open Cup on Tuesday night.
Shriver's header from the right side got through goalie Bill Gaudette.
The loss was the Galaxy's eighth straight (0-6-2). The RailHawks are winless (0-5-4) in the North American Soccer League this season.
Pat Noonan scored on an assist from Chad Barrett in the 38th minute for LA.
But Ty Shipalane tied it in the 75th minute from 5 yards on the right side, assisted by Zach Schilawski.
The Galaxy, which won Cups in 2001 and 2005, were without David Beckham, Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane.
