[USL-1]Carolina and Charleston remained 1-2 in the USL First Division when they both shut out visiting Cleveland, dropping the first-year USL-1 club to 1-6-1.

For the second time in less than a week, Daniel Paladini scored a late winner for the RailHawks. Six days after his 83rd-minute penalty gave the RailHawks a 1-0 win in Austin, Paladini scored on a 40-yard free kick that deflected off the Cleveland wall and threw goalkeeper Hunter Gilstrap just off the ball's path, giving Carolina a 1-0 win before a crowd of 5,238 at WakeMed Soccer Park.

The Battery, the only unbeaten team in USL-1, recorded its fourth straight shutout by blanking the City Stars, 2-0, a day later on goals by Chris Williams and Kenji Treschuk, the first goals of the season for both players.

"Not a bad night all around," said Battery coach Mike Anhaeuser. "We didn't create a lot of chances, but the chances we did create were quality. Once again, we were strong in the back. I have no complaints."

Battery goalkeeper Dusty Hudock earned his league-leading seventh shutout.
