CHESTER, Pa. (AP) — Sebastien Le Toux scored two goals, highlighted by a penalty kick in the 114th minute of the second overtime, lifting the Philadelphia Union past the New York Cosmos, 2-1, in the fifth round of the U.S. Open Cup on Tuesday.

Le Toux is 10 for 10 on penalty kicks in his career with the Union.

Philadelphia advanced to the quarterfinals and will face the winner of the Rochester Rhinos (USL Pro) and New England Revolution of MLS on July 8 at PPL Park. Rochester and New England will play Wednesday night in Queens.

The Cosmos, who play in the North American Soccer League, took a 1-0 advantage in the 56th minute on a goal by Alessandro Noselli. New York, which beat the MLS New York Red Bulls 3-0 in the fourth round, controlled possession for much of the game against the Union.

After Le Toux gave the Union a one-goal lead, the game got quite chippy.

Three players were ejected toward the end of the second overtime: Michael Lahoud of the Union, and Ayoze and Jimmy Ockford of the Cosmos.
