[DATEBOOK] The Rochester Rhinos are the No. 1 seeds in the D-2 Pro League playoffs. Among the four quarterfinal matchups is a meeting between Pacific Northwest rivals Portland and Vancouver, which will both move to MLS in 2011.

The Rhinos won the USL Conference title when they rallied to beat AC St. Louis, 2-1, and Austin Aztex fell at Montreal, 2-0.

The Carolina RailHawks earned the No. 2 seed overall by finishing in first place in the NASL Conference.

Aztex earned the third seed, while the Portland Timbers rounded out the top four by finishing third in the USL Conference.
 
The Vancouver Whitecaps, Montreal Impact, NSC Minnesota Stars and Puerto Rico Islanders round out the playoff field.
