[USL PRO: Week 6]JC Banks, son of former U.S. World Cup player Jimmy Banks, scored the lone goal to give the Rochester Rhinos a 1-0 win over the Charleston Battery in their home opener that drew 6,358 fans at Sahlen's Stadium.

In Sunday's other game, LA Galaxy II got goals from Galaxy first-team players Rafael Garcia, Travis Bowen and Gyasi Zardes in a 3-0 win at Orange County that moved Los Dos back into tie for first-place with Orlando City. With the Galaxy off this week, Galaxy II started eight Galaxy players.

Saturday ...

Sacramento Republic FC almost doubled the USL PRO attendance record for a regular-season game when it drew a sellout crowd of 20,231 fans at Hughes Stadium Saturday night for its first home game, a 2-1 loss to Harrisburg.

Orlando City set the USL PRO regular-season record with 10,697 at the Florida Citrus Bowl in August 2013. Republic FC will play at Hughes Stadium, located on the campus of Sacramento City College, until its new facility being built at Cal Expo opens on June 7.

Robbie Derschang and Morgan Langley both scored for the Islanders, who earned their first win of the season. Langley's winner came Adam Jahn headed home his first Republic FC goal to tie the score at the half.

“We need to get sharper,” said Jahn, on loan from Sacramento's MLS partner the San Jose Earthquakes. “We had a lot of good build up plays but quality was not good enough and finishing wasn’t good enough either.”

A sellout crowd, of 3,741, was also on hand at Pribil Stadium to welcome OKC Energy FC, which dropped a 2-1 decision to Orlando City.

-- Charlotte's 2-0 win at Wilmington left Orlando City as the lone unbeaten team.

Friday night ...

A bye week meant that the Chicago Fire loaded up on first-team regulars for the Reserves' trip to Charlotte, where they rallied from an early two-goal deficit to defeat the Eagles, 3-2. DP Juan Luis Anangono had a pair of goals and Quincy Amarikwa added the third after the Eagles took the lead on goals by Zak Boggs and Jorge Herrera.
