[USL PRO REWIND | Week 21] The Richmond Kickers regained the lead in USL PRO at least temporarily with a 5-2 win over the Dayton Dutch Lions Saturday night. Matthew Delicate and Brian Ownby led Richmond with a pair of goals apiece and Nate Robinson added the fifth goal before a crowd of 4,014 in Richmond.

Second-place Orlando City, which trails the Kickers by three points but has a game in hand, hosts the Seattle Sounders FC Reserves on Sunday.

-- Lucky Mkosana scored all three goals to give him 10 goals in his last seven games as the Harrisburg City Islanders bounced back from a tough home loss on Wednesday with a 3-1 victory over fading VSI Tampa Bay FC on Saturday night.

-- Charlotte clinched its first playoff berth since 2009 with a 5-0 victory over Antigua Barracuda FC. Drew Yates led the Eagles with one goal and two assists, while Jorge Herrera scored twice and Stephen Okai and Paul Islas added goals. Barracuda FC is two games away from finishing the season without a point.

-- An own net by Phoenix FC forward Darren Mackie in the 11th minute gave the Charleston Battery a 1-0 win that clinched a place in the playoffs.

Friday ...

A goal by Tam McManus on the final kick of the game gave the Rochester Rhinos a 1-0 win over Pittsburgh, snapping the Riverhounds' four-game winning streak.

-- The Wilmington Hammerheads left their slim playoff hopes alive with a 2-1 win over the Dayton Dutch Lions on Cody Arnoux's goal in stoppage time. The Hammerheads, who have won three games in a row, closed the gap on the Dutch Lions and Pittsburgh to four points with two games remaining.
