uscupSounders general manager Adrian Hanauer lifted the U.S. Open Cup at Qwest Field tonight, as the Sounders’ victory over D.C. United was honored between the first and second quarters of the Seahawks exhibition game tonight against Oakland.

Hanauer raised the Cup along with a handful of players, who were shown on the stadium replay boards. Later, midfielder Brad Evans said a few words as part of the local KING telecast.

“It’s teams from all over the country that are invited to play in this Cup,” Evans said, “And we come out with a trophy.”

The football broadcasters also asked Evans what he said was the most-asked question in the wake of last night’s win: Can the Sounders use the Cup win as a boost for their playoff run.

“It’s huge for our confidence,” Evans said. “We have to go back there in 10 days and play D.C. again on their home turf. It’s going to be a tough task, their fans are going to be out again. But we have to get points, we have to make a run and we’ve got six games left to do it.”

    Great to see everyone talking about turning the win into momentum for MLS playoffs … I’m curious about Sigi’s lineup given he’s sans Ljungberg, plus the way Le Toux played up front ….
    And it must be odd playing the same team again, given the circumstances ….
