LD Update: NASL & USL Pro Game Night

It was a quiet night in the NASL with only two goals total in three matches. The only teams to find victory were the league-leading San Antonio Scorpions and Fort Lauderdale Strikers.

In USL Pro, the Charlotte Eagles' quest for the postseason stalled a bit with a draw versus Dayton, but the lone point was enough to pull even with the Harrisburg City Islanders for sixth as they fell in Richmond. Charleston moved within a point of the second-place Rhinos with a surprising 4-0 victory in Rochester while LA kept its slim chances alive with a narrow win versus Antigua two days after previously losing at home to them.


Fort Lauderdale Strikers 1:0 Carolina RailHawks - A third 1-0 victory over Carolina this season came via Andy Herron in the 65th minute on a strike from outside the box. - MORE

Tampa Bay Rowdies 0:0 Atlanta Silverbacks - Rowdies netminder Jeff Attinella picked up his seventh clean sheet of the season, but it was his counterpart Daniel Illyes that stole the spotlight in the final minute of the first half, saving a penalty kick attempt from Matt Clare after a handball call in the box. - MORE

Minnesota Stars 0:1 San Antonio Scorpions - The league leaders and defending champions were in a stalemate until San Antonio's Pablo Campos was fouled in the box, leading to a Hans Denissen penalty conversion a minute later for the win. - MORE


Richmond Kickers 2:1 Harrisburg City Islanders - Stanley Nyazamba posted a goal and an assist on the night with Harrisburg's lone goal coming at the hands of the Kickers. Nyazamba put a rebounded Luke Vercollone shot in off the underside of the crossbar in the 13th minute only to see William Yomby level terms with an own goal. He made up for it by heading in a cross from Nyazamba in the 78th for the win. - MORE

Rochester Rhinos 0:4 Charleston Battery - It was the Tony Donatelli show as the former Rhino struck for two goals and an assist. He found the back of the net twice in the first half-hour with Amadou Sanyang making it three in the 45th. Donatelli connected with Dane Kelly to make it four with four minutes remaining. - MORE

Dayton Dutch Lions 2:2 Charlotte Eagles - The hosts took the lead five minutes before the break when Taylor Lord delivered a 40-yard free kick that was put away by Eli Garner. Two minutes into the second half, halftime insertion Gibson Bardsley doubled the lead with a shot bewteen Clint Irwin's legs. Chris Salvaggione hit the upper corner of the goal with four minutes remaining from the right side of the area. In a push for the equalizer Josh Rife was able to get his foot on a loose ball after a stop by Matt Williams. - MORE

LA Blues 1:0 Antigua Barracuda - A cross from Maykel Galindo in first half stoppage time was all the hosts needed as Max Griffin put his header within the six past Nathan Sprenkel. - MORE
