Rhinos up a goal, Canadians tied - USL Semi-Finals

The Charleston Battery gave it everything they had, but they could not get out of Rochester with a tie last night. The first half saw a lot of back and forth, but the big moment came in the 42nd minute when the Battery were reduced to 10 men.

In the second half, the Battery came out trying to play for the tie, but the Rhinos would not let it happen. Midfielder Greg Howes (pictured) scored the lone goal with a right-footed shot from outside the box in the 52nd minute.

The series moves to Charleston on Sunday. A video stream of this match will be available on Charleston's website, while Rochester's site will have an audio call (Rhinos, Battery).

In the other series, the Vancouver Whitecaps and Montreal Impact played a physical match but had few chances to get goals. There were only about four good chances all night, but none of them connected with the netting.

The series continues in Montreal on Sunday. You can find the audio call for this match on their websites (Impact, Whitecaps).
