[USL PRO REWIND: Week 18]Orlando City defeated the Harrisburg City Islanders, 3-1, Saturday night before 7,311 fans at the Florida Citrus Bowl to open up a four-point lead over the Richmond Kickers at the top of USL PRO. Midfielder Jean Alexandre scored two goals in his return from national team play with Haiti at the Gold Cup.

Dennis Chin added a third goal in the 71st minute before Lucky Mkosano pulled one back for Harrisburg eight minutes later.

“I thought first half we played terrific and played a lot of really good football,” said Orlando City coach Adrian Heath. “We dropped off in the second half but after all the travel and games we’ve played recently, the upcoming break is coming at the right time.“

-- The Pittsburgh Riverhounds fell to reigning English FA Cup champion Wigan Athletic, 4-1. Jose Anguloscored in the third minute, but the Latics answered with two goals in each half to win.
