The Old Guard Shield was announced back in February to much fanfare from the USL and the eligible teams.

Woof.

At around 4:30 on Saturday afternoon, a storm rolled out of the west and struck City Island in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. Oh, did you think I meant a metaphorical storm? No, it was an actual thunderstorm that hit the island. There was even a tornado watch for a little while there. The metaphorical storm didn't hit City Island until closer to 7:00 p.

Two voices, one recap, same low price of admission

Evan Villella: Bethlehem took the season series last night thanks to a goal from James Chambers. Obviously this was a weird game for a few reasons, but I guess I would just start with saying that Steel have won their last three in a row and are five games unbeaten now.

Harrisburg secures a come from behind victory thanks to a Ropapa Mensah brace.

It's getting quite late in the season for the City Islanders, but they still ran into a couple of 2017 firsts during their match against Toronto FC II on Saturday night. This would ultimately end up being Harrisburg's first match of 2017 where a player scored a brace, which is either the sign of a troubled offense or a well spread out attack (it's probably more of the first than the second).

Harrisburg tops Toronto in a Canada Day shootout

Well that was unexpected.

Perhaps there was a little Canada Day magic in the air on Saturday afternoon. Two of the USL's weaker offenses were taking the pitch, and all signs pointed towards 90 minutes of solid defensive play and minimal scoring.

Oh, stoppage time. You are a cruel mistress. A mere three days after Harrisburg found a stoppage time goal to secure a win over Saint Louis FC, they saw their own victory over FC Cincinnati turn into a mere draw after Cincy found a goal deep, deep into stoppage time.

The two hottest teams in the Eastern Conference come together Tuesday night.

The Harrisburg City Islanders and Charlotte Independence are rocking and rolling through the middle part of the USL season, and have each defied early setbacks to climb the standings. The Independence won their last meeting at home, 2-0, over the Islanders, but Harrisburg is a different team now and should expect a better performance at home.
