    FIRST ROUND -- Tuesday, May 15

    SECOND ROUND-- Tuesday, May 22
    Jersey Shore Boca (USASA)/Michigan Bucks (PDL) Winner at Pittsburgh Riverhounds (USL PRO): Chartiers Valley Stadium; Bridgeville, Pa.; 7 p.m. ET

    So.... we get a home game in the first round, but not the second, while Chicago would get a home game in the second??? Couldn't we have been paired with Dayton instead?

    Remember, this Tuesday at the "Ult." http://www.buckssoccer.com/home/623332.html

    Quote-of-the-day goes to Gary Parsons, when asked what he knew about his first round opponent (Jersey Shore Boca): "My opponent? I don’t even know who MY team is.... We may have to put names on the backs of their jerseys so I know who is out there."

    Bucks would host Chicago Fire, should they defeat Pittsburgh: http://www.ussoccer.com/News/Lamar-Hunt-U-S-Open-Cup/2012/05/2012-US-Open-Cup-Pairings-for-Third-Round-Announced.aspx

    2012 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Schedule
    THIRD ROUND - Tuesday, May 29
    Chicago Fire (MLS) at Michigan Bucks (PDL): Ultimate Soccer; Pontiac, Mich.; 7:30 p.m. ET
    - OR -
    Pittsburgh Riverhounds (USL PRO) at Chicago Fire (MLS): Toyota Park; Bridgeview, Ill.; 7:30 p.m. CT

    Yesterday, the Jersey Shore Boca had some of the play, then the Bucks started to take over at about the ten-minute mark. Even after Jersey got a red card at 17:00, it took the Bucks well into the first half to actually score, but it was a comfortable 3-0 halftime lead; ending up 6-0.

    I taped the match, and looked at the red-card play; I guess it would account for a red card, since it was directly in front of the goal (20 yards out), and it was the last defender. But I'll also say that the video was a bit less convincing than it looked in the real play.

    Is Stephan St. Louis playing for both the Bucks, and Detroit City? I thought that his level of play was way too good for the NPSL-level. I kept thinking, "he could score 15 goals in this league." Cleveland quickly found that out, then started giving him the "star treatment" in the foul department.

    The question I have is, who has his USSF registration? I would imagine that the team that does could make some trouble for the one that doesn't.

    Looks like we have our answer, from the Free Press's chat with Dan Duggan. He's answering a question about the Bucks' 40-man roster:

    Wow... dare we call it "the biggest intra-state upset in Michigan soccer history?"

    The Bucks played a totally listless game yesterday. They only got some good SOG's after Dearborn had taken the lead in the second half. Team Hand-Picked got thwacked by Team Not Really As Good As Them. The lead goal came on a spill by the Bucks goalkeeper. (Even Dan says "assist to the goalie.") When Dearborn didn't take a 2-0 lead on an open net, that's when I thought, "OK, play time is over; Bucks to roll." That didn't happen. Even if some of the Bucks players didn't get there until the day before, that result is just plain unacceptable. I keep trying to tell everyone that the Bucks are the best ameteur club in the country, but they sure pull off some real stink-bombs sometimes.

    Dearborn at Dayton Dutch Lions (USL PRO) next week. Winner goes to Columbus Crew Stadium the week after.

    Adria was not the best draw for Detroit City; as it will be tough for the Bucks. In fact the four-team "pod" of (RWB Adria USASA -v- Michigan Bucks PDL) at (New York Red Bulls U23s NPSL -v- Pittsburgh Riverhounds USL-PRO) might be the toughest of R2-R3.

    Presale prices for these $10 USL PDL final four tickets are only $7 per day by purchasing on line or a family of four can purchase a Family Pass ($80 value) for only $25.This pass allows up to four people into all three games on Friday and Sunday for one low price.There are only 250 family passes available and once they are sold, no more will be printed so fans need to respond quickly.For coaches and group leaders wanting to bring a group of 20 to the game, those tickets can be purchased for only $6 each.

    Bucks win the title!

    Bucks win the title!

    The Bucks survived the pressure from the Kitsap Pumas for the first half, going to the locker room at nil-nil, missed one open net early in the second half, and finally got the winner from Tom Owens who scored his first goal of the season.

    game report and full-match video (and, yes, that's me celebrating with the team and Dan Duggan after the goal). They made a pile four-deep on top of Owens: http://www.uslpdl.com/home/827421.html

    Bucks report: http://www.buckssoccer.com/home/827520.html

    This, incidentally, sets up a scheduling conflict for the Bucks next season. The USASA has their "US Soccer National Amateur Championship" played over Memorial weekend. The Bucks have played at the Canton Cup that weekend the last several years. Interesting that the listing of the Bucks 2014 game was posted on June 5, 2013 (just after Memorial 2013), so it is possible that the Bucks may already be penciled in next year.

    On the other hand, though, it would be great if the Bucks could host the 2015 USSNAC.

    But they didn't win the US Open Cup, so your post is misplaced. Congrats on winning the PDL btw.

    http://www.ussoccer.com/stories/201...chigan-bucks-vs-detroit-city-first-round-feat

    I guess the matchup is now being labeled "Melee in the Mitten"

    The article does a good job at looking at the two ownership styles: one built for the long-approach to the sport, one the newcomer. I wouldn't call the fan-first approach that the article implies; it just comes from a different angle. (I would be remiss not to mention that many of the Detroit City fans were former supporters of the Bucks.)

    It also does mention that the first round comes maybe a week too soon for the Bucks. Most of the players would only be arriving that week; the article says that half of the roster would be unavailable.
