Isles to finish season against Pittsburgh

The Harrisburg City Islanders will finish their season at home this Saturday when they host the playoff-bound Pittsburgh Riverhounds.

The Islanders 2010 league campaign has fallen short of expectation. While the team impressed with a U.S. Open Cup quarterfinal run, they were unable to piece together a run in the regular season.

While the Isles find themselves eliminated from the upcoming USL-2 playoffs they still have pride to play for. Sitting in 5th place in the six team league, the Islanders will look to end on a positive note and would love to close with a win. The three previous meetings of the Islanders and Riverhounds this season have all ended in 1-1 draws and each contest has been a heated affair—with pride on the line, don’t expect this finale to be any less intense.

Kick-off is scheduled for 7pm at Skyline Sports Complex and this is likely to be your last chance to see the Islanders in action until March. Check out the team website for more details.
