The Richmond Kickers and the Harrisburg City Islanders meet for the third time this season, with the Kickers the winners of the previous two. A win for the Kickers would solidify their hold on second place in USL PRO, while a win for the City Islanders would keep them in the battle for the last playoff spot. With D.C. United taking on Fulham FC at about the same time, I know that your attentions will be divided; but just put the streaming audio for United on your computer and throw this game on YouTube on your TV. Everybody wins! And if you're in Richmond, tonight is craft beer night, so come out!
Kickoff time: 7:00 PM EDT
Venue: City Stadium, Richmond, Va.
Streaming: As always, you can find USL PRO games available on YouTube for your streaming pleasure.
D.C. United players in attendance: From the pictures posted on Facebook, it looks like Joe Willis will be the only D.C. United player in Richmond today.
Richmond Kickers starting XI: Joe Willis will be in goal, with Alex Lee, Henry Kalungi, William Yomby, and Alex Lee ahead of him. Defensive midfield will be Samuel Asante and Luke Vercollone, with Shay Spitz, George Davis IV, and Jason Yeisley in attacking midfield. Matthew Delicate, the USL PRO leading goalscorer, will start up top.
Prediction: The Kickers are rolling, especially at home: 2-0 for the good guys.
What are you drinking? As I said, its craft beer day at City Stadium, so something from a local brewery will be in order. Lost Rhino? Wild Wolf? We shall see.
