USL Championship: Weekend report

Eastern Conference:
• Charleston's lead in the Eastern Conference was reduced to a point over Pittsburgh when it fell at home to Indy Eleven, 4-0. The Battery lost Leland Archer to a red card after 19 seconds, the second-fastest red card in USL Championship history. Aodhan Quinn scored the first of his two goals for Indy in the 2nd minute. • Ahead of their U.S. Open Cup match at FC Cincinnati, the Riverhounds extended their winning streak to six games in all competitions thanks to a 1-0 win over Phoenix on Arturo Ordóñez's goal, the second straight match in which the Spanish defender scored the winning goal. • Memphis 901's winning streak in league play is four games and unbeaten streak is now eight games after a 5-1 win over Miami FC. The goalscorers included 18-year-old Nighte Pickering, who has two goals and two assists in his last three USL games.

Western Conference:
• Zach Prince stepped down as New Mexico United's head coach and technical director. He was elevated to head coach following the departure of now-New York Red Bulls interim coach Troy Lesesne in November 2021. • The move was announced shortly after the 1-0 loss to El Paso in front of 11,247 fans at Isotopes Park in Albuquerque. The win, which came on Denys Kostyshyn's second-half header, extended Locomotive FC's winning streak to seven games. • The El Paso win reduced Sac Republic FC's lead in the Eastern Conference to two points when it was held to a 1-1 tie by Tampa Bay
