Watch: Reno 1868's Lamar Hunt scores classic own goal in US Open Cup

The US Open Cup is actually a competition with some real history; it's the oldest football competition in America.

Given the amount of amateur entrants, incidents like the below are inevitable - the cup has some giant-killing pedigree, but more often than not the minnows are outclassed.

Or they shoot themselves in the foot.

That's some of Reno 1868's finest defending. Fortunately, though, they still progressed, beating the Portland Timbers' U23 team 7-3 to advance to the next round.
