[USL PRO] Orlando City will face the Harrisburg City Islanders for the USL PRO championship Saturday (TV: Fox Soccer, 7 p.m. ET) after they won their respective divisional finals this weekend. Orlando won in convincing fashion, but Harrisburg's victory was costly.
 
ROCHESTER-HARRISBURG. Despite having two players sent off in the first half, the City Islanders booked their place with a 2-1 victory against the Rochester Rhinos in the National Division Final on Friday night at Sahlen’s Stadium.

Harrisburg won thanks to first-half goals by Stephen Basso and David Schofield.
 
Harrisburg's Andrew Marshall and Rochester's Tony Donatelli were sent off in the 27th minute and City Islander Brian Ombiji and his coach, Bill Becher, soon followed them to the exit.

Rochester scored on Isaac Kissi's goal in the 45th minute, but the Rhinos couldn't get the equalizer despite their man advantage.

Harrisburg will be without Marshall and Ombiji for the final.

ORLANDO CITY-RICHMOND. Orlando reached the championship game with a 3-0 victory over the Kickers in the American Division Final before 8,304 fans on Saturday night at the Florida Citrus Bowl.

Luke Boden and Jerome Mecheck each scored in the first half and Dennis Chin added a goal in the second half.
 
“I thought that tonight we played at a level above the league we currently play in,” Orlando City coach Adrian Heath said. “I am really satisfied with tonight’s result. We played composed football, which is something I am very proud of.”
