[USL PRO: Semifinals] For the second week in a row, the Charlotte Eagles won on the road, rallying to beat the No. 1 seed Richmond Kickers, and move into Saturday's USL PRO final against Orlando City at the Florida Citrus Bowl.
 
Chris Ramirez and Jorge Herrera scored for the second straight game as the Eagles came back to hand Richmond its first home defeat of the season.

The Kickers opened the scoring in the 12th minute on Mike Callahan's goal off Houston Dynamo loan player Brian Ownby’s corner kick.
 
By halftime, however, Charlotte was ahead as Ramirez scored on a header and Herrera's low shot eluded Kickers goalkeeper Andrew Dykstra at his near post.
 
Eric Reed preserved the Charlotte win with a big save on D.C. United teenager Michael Seaton, another of the Kickers' loan players.

It will be the eighth time the Eagles have played in a USL final. The Eagles won D3 titles in 2000 and 2005. They reached the final five of six seasons over the years 2004-09.

Aug. 31 in Richmond, Va.
