[USL PRO REWIND: Week 5] The Harrisburg City Islanders earned the first win by a USL PRO club in interleague play this season with a 2-1 win over the Colorado Rapids Reserves 2-1 at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on Saturday night.

Cristhian Hernandez had a goal and set up fellow Philadelphia Union loan player Greg Jordan for the other goal for Harrisburg, which took its second win in as many games.

Also on Saturday ...

-- Charleston clobbered Antigua Barracuda FC with a 4-0 victory in the Battery's home opener in front of 4,546 fans at Blackbaud Stadium. Former Cuban international Heviel Cordoves, Vancouver Whitecaps loan player Ben Fisk, Dane Kelly and Zach Prince scored for the Battery.

-- The struggling Rochester Rhinos' problems continued as they blew an early lead and had two players sent off in a 4-1 loss at Richmond before a crowd of 2,270. After Matt Luzunaris put Rochester ahead, the Kickers responded with four unanswered goals from Mike Callahan, Joseph Ngwenya, Jason Yeisley and Stanley Nyazamba.

-- A stoppage-time goal by Remco Klaasse gave the Dayton Dutch Lions a 2-1 victory over the Pittsburgh Riverhounds in their 2013 opener despite having to play down a man for more than an hour. Gibson Bardsley put the Dutch Lions late in the first half before Jose Angulo equalized in first-half stoppage time.

Sunday ...

-- Andriy Budnyy's goal broke a 2-2 tie as VSI Tampa Bay FC beat the Los Angeles Blues, 3-2, and moved into a tie with the Blues and Orlando City thanks to its third win in four games. Shawn Chin and Sean Reynolds also scored for Tampa Bay, while George Davis IV had both goals for the Blues in a match delayed because of lightning.

Friday ...

-- A regular-season record crowd of 9,140 watched Orlando City top the LA Blues, 3-2, at the Florida Citrus Bowl. The win moved Orlando, which got two goals from Jamie Watson and one from Yann Songo'o, into a tie for first place with the Blues.
