Antigua Barracuda FC falls to 0-25-0

[USL PRO REWIND: Week 22] 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 just one game -- at red-hot 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.

Meanwhile, USL PRO has initiated an investigation into an incident involving Orlando City's Kevin Ellis and Richmond Kickers fans at Wednesday night’s match at City Stadium in Richmond.

Ellis, who is on loan from Sporting Kansas City, tweeted after the game won by Richmond, 2-0, to clinch the regular-season title that fans had hurled racial comments about him and made comments about his mother, who died two years ago. His tweet have since been deleted.

“League officials are working actively to gather information from various parties," the league said in a statement. "USL PRO and its clubs strongly condemn all forms of abuse and will not tolerate any such actions from its players, coaches, fans, or anyone in involved with the league.”
