USL Playoffs Set
The USL-1 Regular Season concluded this past week and the playoffs are set. The Puerto Rico Islanders (pictured above) have won the Regular Season title, and gained the #1 seed in the playoffs. This gives the road weary Islanders a bye in the first round and a chance for now to focus on the CONCACAF Champions League.
Here are the other matchups
#2 Vancouver vs # 7 Minnesota
#3 Montreal vs #6 Seattle
#4 Rochester vs #5 Charleston
The two leg first round series begin Tuesday and conclude Sunday.
