Harrisburg, PA (May 23, 2016) – After finding three points for the first time in over a month against Bethlehem Steel FC on Sunday night, the City Islanders will take on Toronto FC II at Clipper Magazine Stadium Tuesday, May 24 at 7 p.m.
City found a win against their newest USL instate rival because of two early back-to-back goals from Aaron Wheeler in less than two minutes. After netting the first goal in the 14th minute, Wheeler capitalized on a perfect pass from James Thomas for what would ultimately be the game winner just 16 minutes into the match.
Just a few short days after hosting Bethlehem Steel FC the Isles will welcome Toronto FC II into Clipper Magazine Stadium for the first time on Tuesday, May 24 at 7 p.m. Toronto has been faltering as of late with only one win in their last six games, but they only sit one point clear of the Islanders.
Toronto’s lead scorer, Raheem Edwards, is sixth in the league with four goals on the season. The scoring attack from the Canadian team is also led by five other players who have tallied a goal on the season. Toronto will also play the Pittsburgh Riverhounds on Saturday before heading to Lancaster later in the week.
Another win for City in this series would vault the Islanders up the standings with a total of 13 points. The Islanders will need to get points at home before they head out for four straight away games before heading back home on June 21 to face off with FC Montreal.
Tuesday’s match will feature the City Islanders pregame show hosted by fun with game analysis and entertainment. Additionally, we look forward to honoring all teachers, police, firefighters, EMT and military members who are serving or have served our country. ALL heroes will receive a free ticket with signup HERE courtesy of UGI Energy!
