[USL PRO REWIND: Week 20]The first-place Richmond Kickers crashed to their first defeat after starting 13-0-9 when they lost at Charleston, 5-2, on Saturday night but they maintained their six-point lead at the top when second-place Orlando City, which fell at home to Pittsburgh, 1-0.

Richmond was playing its second game in 24 hours after winning, 1-0, at Carolina on Friday, but it fell behind 2-0 after 25 minutes and drew to within 2-1 and 3-2 before fading late in the game.

Mike Azira led the Battery with two goals in its win over the Kickers. Colin Falvey, Dane Kelly and Haviel Cordoves also scored for Charleston, which moved to within three points of second-place Orlando and two points of third-place Harrisburg, which tied Los Angeles, 2-2, on the road.

Ryan Kinne scored in the 52nd minute to give the Riverhounds the win before 7,262 fans at the Florida Citrus Bowl. The victory gave Pittsburgh a sweep of its back-to-back games in Florida and moved it into a four-way tie for fifth place after beginning the weekend in ninth place.
