The heat is on in the race for a USL PRO Playoff berth as the penultimate weekend of regular season action kicks off tonight. A mere eight points separates six teams battling for four playoff spots. With three teams battling it out in our tailored Teamwear, it's bound to be a special few days for us here at Umbro USA.
Two Umbro-sponsored teams' crunch games are sure to draw plenty of attention:
- On Friday, the Pittsburgh Riverhounds will play Charlotte Eagles at home. Kick off is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. ET.
- Rochester Rhinos have a chance to join Orlando City in earning a bye into the semifinals when they host the Charleston Battery at 7:05 p.m. ET at Sahlen’s Stadium, Saturday August 11. Victory will take the Rhinos out of reach in second place, but the Battery will provide stiff opposition as they try to snap out of a slump that has seen them get dragged back into the battle for the playoffs.
Regardless of who you may be rooting for to make it through, this weekend's matches will not disappoint. As always, you can catch all the action as it unfolds live by following the league on Twitter (@USLPRO) as well as on Facebook (www.facebook.com/USLPRO).
