Harrisburg pulls another upset on the road

[USL PRO: Semifinals] The eighth-seeded Harrisburg City Islanders, who had ousted regular-season champion Orlando City in the quarterfinals, moved into the USL PRO championship with a 3-2 win at Richmond in Saturday's semifinals.

Morgan Langley, Jamiel Hardware and Danny DiPrima scored for Harrisburg to defeat Richmond, which had won all three regular-season meetings by one goal. Jason Yeisley and Conor Shanosky scored for the Kickers.

The City Islanders will play in their second USL PRO final against the winner of Saturday night's Sacramento-LA Galaxy II match. They fell to Orlando City in the 2011 final. Their only title came in 2007 when they won the USL Second Division championship.
