For 90 minutes, Wednesday night’s U.S. Open Cup semifinal between FC Dallas and the L.A. Galaxy wasn’t particularly exciting, and it headed to extra time at 0-0. However, things then got much weirder. The Galaxy managed to take a 1-0 lead in the 101st minute when Giovanni dos Santos drew a penalty and Mike Magee converted it:

The second 15-minute half of extra time saw a different story, though. In the 116th minute, less than five minutes from the end of the 30-minute overtime, the visitors’ Matt Hedges equalized with a header off a Mauro Diaz corner:

At that point, everything looked set for penalty kicks. That wouldn’t be the case, though, as the Galaxy again did a poor job of marking on a corner kick in the first minute of added time, and Victor Ulloa made them pay:

That’s quite the finish, and quite the comeback for Dallas. It was Ulloa’s first career U.S. Open Cup goal, too, and the first semifinals winner in second-overtime stoppage time. It was also only the third game-winner in the 120th minute or later since 1995. The win means that FC Dallas will host the New England Revolution in the final, in a rematch of the 2007 U.S. Open Cup final. We’ll see if they have more magic up their sleeves for that one.
