A Magnolia State squad made a big soccer statement. Mississippi Brilla FC upset Indy Eleven 1-0 Wednesday in the 2nd Round of the 105th U.S. Open Cup. It's the biggest tournament in the country, pitting professional teams from MLS and USL against developmental teams from leagues like the PDL.
Koray Easterling had the only goal of the matchup, scoring off a Bastien Oberli cross.
