Could you script a more dramatic storyline than what unfolded at the Skyline Sports Complex Tuesday evening in Harrisburg, Penn.?
Harrisburg City Islanders came on late to earn a come from behind win against a shorthanded Reading United 2-1 at the Skyline Sports Complex.
The Ocean City Barons are the lone amateur club remaining in the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup after a 1-0 overtime win over Real Maryland of the USL Second Division. The difference in the match was a JT Noone penalty kick in the 108th minute after a Monarchs player was called for a handball off an Ocean City corner kick.
The Ocean City Barons became the first PDL team to beat a USL professional squad in the 2009 tournament, winning a 3-0 decision over Crystal Palace Baltimore of the USL Second Division. Baltimore was attempting to avenge a 1-0 upset in the First Round of the 2007 tournament at the hands of the Barons. That game two years ago was also played at “The Beach House” in Ocean City and for the Barons, it was their third upset of a pro team in franchise history.
