Daily Press



Brian Lybert scored in the first half Saturday night as Virginia Legacy 76 gained its first victory in the National Premier Soccer League, defeating the ASA Charge 1-0 in Arundel, Md.

USL Pro:

The Richmond Kickers defeated the Harrisburg City Islanders 3-2 in Pennsylvania with a goal just before the end of regulation.

Luke Vercollone sent the ball up, and Kyle Porter knocked it in to give the Kickers (6-1-4) the decisive goal.

Counting a win over the New York Greek American Atlas in the U.S. Open Cup's third round, the Kickers were playing their third game in three days.


Coastal Plain League:

The Peninsula Pilots, who are 3-0 on the road, fell to 0-2 at home as Wilson escaped with a 5-4 win at War Memorial Stadium.

The Pilots used seven pitchers. They trailed by only 2-1 before playing a shaky defensive inning in the eighth, when the Tobs plated three runs for a 5-1 margin.

Peninsula responded with a three-run eighth, which included an RBI single by Mount Olive's Zak Orrison, but left the bases loaded.

The Pilots threatened to tie in the ninth as CJ Roth drew a one-out walk and stole second, but Orrison flew out to deep left to end the contest.

Eastern Kentucky's Doug Teegarden led the Tobs, going 3-for-4 with three RBI. Kansas' Tyler Watson pitched the first 5 2/3 innings for the victory.

International League:

Drawing a Harbor Park season-high crowd of 11,857 and featuring postgame fireworks, the Norfolk Tides evened their series with Pawtucket by beating the Red Sox 3-1.

Yoon (2-5) turned in his second straight strong outing, holding the Pawsox to one run on six hits over seven innings. The 27-year-old South Korean completed seven innings for the second straight start, though Travis Shaw belted a home run off him in the fourth inning.

Yoon struck out six without walking a batter, giving him 24 strikeouts and one walk over six starts in May.

Chris Marrero and Alexi Casilla each had two hits and an RBI to help lead Norfolk's 10-hit attack.

Eastern League:

Austin Fleet pitched six scoreless innings, leading the Richmond Flying Squirrels (29-24) to their fifth straight victory, 4-1 at Bowie.
