BRIDGEVIEW, Ill.—Orr Barouch scored twice, following goals by Dominic Oduro and Yamith Cuesta, and the Chicago Fire routed the New York Red Bulls 4-0 in a U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal match on Tuesday night.

Chicago will play either Kansas City or Richmond in the semifinals on Aug. 30.

This match was played 2 1/2 hours earlier than scheduled because of power failures following a severe thunderstorm Monday. Toyota Park had power, but officials wanted the crowd of approximately 1,500 to leave in daylight because of disabled traffic lights.

Barouch scored in the 51st and 68th minutes, beating goalkeeper Bouda Coundoul first on a rebound, then on a hard 15-yard shot.
