U.S. Women’s Open Cup 2012: Quest for results!

Yes, there is a Women’s Open Cup. No, you don’t know most of the teams involved.

The finals for this and the other USASA Cups (men’s open, men’s amateur, men’s over-30, men’s under-23, women’s under-23) will be at the Chicago Fire’s Toyota Park (Bridgeview, Ill.) July 20-22.
