MOST COMMENTED

[USL PRO REWIND: Week 22] VSI Tampa Bay FC was eliminated from playoff contention when it had to settle for a 3-3 tie with the Charlotte Eagles. The result left the Dayton Dutch Lions and Wilmington Hammerheads to battle it out for the eighth and final spot in the postseason.

Chad Burt's penalty kick in the 87th minute earned Tampa Bay a point but it was not enough to catch Dayton in eighth place at the moment.

Thursday ...

Antigua Barracuda FC fell to 0-25-0 on Thursday evening when it fell at Charleston Battery, 3-0 in front of 3,501 fans at Blackbaud Stadium. The loss leaves it with just one more game -- at Wilmington on Saturday -- to earn at least one point.

The Hammerheads have won four games in a row and have a chance to overtake Dayton for the final playoff berth with a win on Saturday.

The Battery moved into third place at least temporarily with the win in its regular-season finale. Jamaican forward Dane Kelly led the Battery with two goals to give him 11 for the season.
