The main focus of last week (and this week) is the U.S. Open Cup. With league play on hold until the end of the international break, Major League Soccer teams have turned their attention to the United States’ version of the English FA Cup. Or at least half of them have. Of the 16 MLS teams in the competition (Canadian teams have their own cup), eight were eliminated at their first hurdle, none by fellow MLS competitors. Most notably, amateur team Cal FC beat the Portland Timbers, giving them three Open Cup wins, all against teams higher than them in the U.S. soccer pyramid. For week 14, here are the power rankings.

19 Toronto FC (1-9-0, 3 points)

Last week:19.

After winning the Canadian Championship (Canada’s version of the U.S. Open Cup), Toronto now awaits the group draw for the CONCACAF Champions League.

This week: No games.

18 Philadelphia Union (2-7-2, 8 points)

Last week: 18.

The Union is struggling with injuries and suspensions on the back line, carrying over from its last league game, a loss to Toronto. In the U.S. Open Cup, Philadelphia has been filling its defense with natural midfielders.

This week: No games.

17 New England Revolution (5-7-1, 16 points)

Last week: 17.

Rookie Kelyn Rowe made his first real MLS impact against Chicago last weekend with a goal and an assist off the bench in a 2-0 win. That came three days after he went 120 minutes against Harrisburg in the U.S. Open Cup.

This week: No games.

16 Montreal Impact (3-7-3, 12 points)

Last week: 16.

Montreal is set to introduce designated player Marco di Vaio when league play resumes. June 16, the Impact will also open Stade Saputo, its newly renovated stadium, against visiting Seattle Sounders FC.

This week: No games.

15 Columbus Crew (5-4-3, 18 points)

Last week: 15.

To help Columbus get some more offense, the Crew signed Costa Rican forward Jairo Arrieta over the break. There has also been talk of another offensive signing, this one of the designated player variety, in Ohio.

This week: No games.

14 Los Angeles Galaxy (3-8-2, 11 points)

Last week: 14.

Goalkeeper Josh Saunders made his first appearance since going into the MLS Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health treatment program for the Galaxy Reserves. He got the win in a 2-1 performance in Portland.

This week: No games.

13 Portland Timbers (3-5-4, 13 points)

Last week: 13.

Portland fans at JELD-WEN Field were vocal about their disappointment in the MLS team’s loss to amateur Cal FC in the U.S. Open Cup last week. It’s an indication of the way this season has gone for the inconsistent young squad.

This week: No games.

12 Houston Dynamo (4-3-4, 16 points)

Last week: 12.

The Dynamo lost 2-1 to Valencia of Spain in the first MLS summer friendly this year on May 31. After that game, defender Jermaine Taylor was called into World Cup Qualifying by the Jamaican national team.

This week: at Vancouver, Sunday at 5 p.m.

11 FC Dallas (3-8-4, 13 points)

Last week: 11.

No matter the competition, FC Dallas’ struggles continue. The team lost 2-0 to the USL Charlotte Eagles, giving it a winless record in May and making Dallas’ last win — a 2-0 win on April 14 over Montreal — a distant memory.

This week: No games

10 Colorado Rapids (6-6-1, 19 points)

Last week: 10.

After a period of two games in four days, the Rapids took three days off from training to recover. A trip to Kansas City for an Open Cup game looms for Colorado, which has played 25 of 29 Open Cup games away from home.

This week: No games.

9 Chivas USA (4-6-3, 15 points)

Last week: 9.

Ante Jazic (Canada) and Oswaldo Minda (Ecuador) are on international duty during this break. Minda isn’t seeing much playing time, but Jazic played 88 minutes in Canada’s 0-0 tie with the U.S.

This week: No games

8 Chicago Fire (5-5-3, 18 points)

Last week: 8.

Chicago is 1-4-0 in its last five games in all competitions. That includes the loss to New England last weekend and the U.S. Open Cup loss to the PDL Michigan Bucks.

This week: No games.

7 Vancouver Whitecaps (5-3-4, 19 points)

Last week: 7.

Head coach Martin Rennie is optimistic about his team’s chances after the way it started, as he should be. At this point last year, the Whitecaps were 1-7-6.

This week: vs. Houston, Sunday at 5 p.m. MDT

6 D.C. United (8-4-3, 27 points)

Last week: 6.

D.C. is one of just a few MLS teams that take the Open Cup very seriously. United is looking for its third Open Cup title this year.

This week: No games

5 Sporting Kansas City (8-3-1, 25 points)

Last week: 5.

Sporting has 11 days between its fourth round Open Cup game and the restart of MLS play. However, coach Peter Vermes isn’t tipping his hand on a lineup yet, although he said his starters would be available if he needed them.

This week: No games

4 Seattle Sounders FC (7-3-3, 24 points)

This week: No games.

3 San Jose Earthquakes (8-3-3, 27 points)

This week: No games.

2 New York Red Bulls (8-4-3, 26 points)

Last week: 2.

More embarrassment came on the disciplinary front for New York when the club was fined $500 for having suspended Tyler Ruthven on its bench in the U.S. Open Cup. He didn’t play, so the 3-0 win over the Charleston Battery stood.

This week: No games.

1 Real Salt Lake (9-3-2, 29 points)

After losing at home to Minnesota in the U.S. Open Cup, head coach Jason Kreis has promised his team would be training hard over the break in league play. RSL has three tough games in a row against the California teams when play resumes.
