Harrisburg City Islanders 1:2 Charlotte Eagles - It was not a pleasant home opener for Harrisburg as a thunderstorm halted the game for 88 minutes just after a half-hour of play. Then things got interesting in the second half with Harrisburg's Sainey Touray go-ahead goal two minutes in. Charlotte's Darryl Roberts, answered for the Eagles in the 66th off a feed from Joseph Kabwe, a second half sub that also set up the Jorge Herrera game-winner seven minutes later. - More

Then it was all Nicki Paterson as he scored the second in the 74th before setting up Salieu Bundu six minutes later and Dane Kelly in the 90th. - More

LA Blues 2:1 Wilmington Hammerheads - The club's first two goals were enough to post the team's first victory of the season. The Blues had to come from behind, though, for the result with Bryce Taylor giving visiting Wilmington the advantage five minutes before the break when former Blues striker Chukwudi Chijindu poked the ball to Taylor for a tap-in. The Blues had the lead 15 minutes into the second half when a long ball found Matt Fondy for the equalizer in the 49th and a handball allowed Allan Russell to score the winner from the spot. - More
