“Dante Leverock and Jose Barril each scored in the first half to lift the City Islanders.

“Pittsburgh captain Kevin Kerr put his side on the score sheet in the 60th minute for a long-awaited goal. Harrisburg posted its second road win of the season [2-7-1] and improved to 5-13-2 [17 points] overall.”

“The City Islanders broke through on a corner kick chance as Jose Barril delivered the ball from the left side finding Dante Leverock who rose well over the Hounds’ defense and headed it home for a 1-0 lead in the 28th minute.

“Then four minutes later, Barril tallied a goal for himself shortly after a throw-in sequence. Cardel Benbow had the initial shot, which was turned away by Pittsburgh goalkeeper Mauricio Vargas. Barril’s rebound took a deflection and trickled across the goal line for a 2-0 cushion in the 32nd minute.”

    I am so proud of him. I have been following him and although I am not a true footballer at heart he is one of my favorite players. A very humble guy who truly loves the game. Keep up the great work!
