Islanders regain top spot

[USL-1] The Puerto Rico Islanders split on their trip through the Carolinas, winning 2-1 at Carolina two days after they fell at Charleston, 1-0.

Their win over the RailHawks was good enough to move them back into first place, one point ahead of the Battery.

The Portland Timbers are only two points behind Puerto Rico after their 4-0 victory over Montreal on Sunday.
