[USL PRO: Week 9] Joe Willis, on loan from D.C. United, saved Orr Grouch's penalty kick in the 90th minute to preserve the Richmond Kickers' scoreless draw against the Chicago Fire Reserves on Sunday afternoon at Toyota Park. The draw extended the Kickers' undefeated streak to six games in USL PRO as they moved within two points of second-place LA Galaxy II.

The Seattle Sounders Reserves handed the Orange County Blues their league-high seventh loss of the season when Cam Weaver's goal held up for a 1-0 decision.

SATURDAY. Sacramento Republic FC got goals from Thomas Stewart and Rodrigo Lopez to defeat LA Galaxy II, 2-1, before its second sellout crowd of 20,231 at Hughes Stadium.

Republic FC will host a fourth match at Hughes Stadium against Arizona United on June 7 before moving to its home at Cal Expo. The loss dropped Los Dos six points behind unbeaten Orlando City, which won, 1-0, at Arizona United FC. The game marked the debut of 17-year-old Tommy Redding for Orlando.

-- The Harrisburg City Islanders, who had scored just three goals in their first six games, broke out for a 5-3 win over the Dayton Dutch Lions. Substitute Jimmy McLaughlin, on loan from the Philadelphia Union, found Morgan Langley for the go-ahead goal in the 83rd minute, and Langley put the game away from around midfield with keeper Matt Williams out of position in the 90th minute.
