USOC: Worcester FC Overtakes Newport FC in Open Division Play


Marcus Pizzetti struck twice before halftime to send Worcester FC to a 2-0 win over Newport FC on Sunday in the first round of Open Division play of the 2016 U.S. Open Cup tournament at Foley Stadium in Worcester, Mass.

Pizzetti opened the scoring in the fourth minute, then added another in the 37th minute to give the Commonwealth outfit a lead it would not relinquish. He was forced to exit the match in the 43rd minute due to a calf cramp.

With the win, Worcester advances to the second round of Open Division play, where they’ll face Lansdowne Bhoys on Nov. 14 at Foley Stadium.
