[USL PRO REWIND: Week 9]The Charleston Battery moved into second place in USL PRO behind Orlando City with a 1-0 win at the Houston Dynamo Reserves on Jamaican forward Dane Kelly's goal in the 35th minute. USL PRO clubs are now 3-2-1 against MLS reserve teams in the first year of interleague play.

-- Rochester president Pat Ercoli has been named head coach in place of Jesse Myer following the Rhinos' 1-6-1 start.

“The Rochester Rhinos have a proud tradition, and we have qualified for the playoffs in each of our first 17 years in existence,” Adirondack Sports Club owner and chief executive officer Rob Clark said. “As an organization we were monitoring the situation, and the Rhinos' 1-6-1 record warranted a change. We believe the easiest and most effective transition is for Pat to take on the head coaching responsibilities for the remainder of the season, while we consider a long-term solution for the future.”

Ercoli had coached the Rhinos to three A-League titles and one Open Cup crown during his tenure as head coach (1996-2004).
