Bearcats in the Pros

Matt Bahner and Matt Williams have continued strong play in the USL PRO league, while Omar Cummings continues to be a key cog off the bench for Major League Soccer's Houston Dynamo.

Bahner earned a spot on the USL PRO's Team of the Week for week six after helping the Harrisburg City Islanders to a 2-1 decision against Sacramento over the Weekend. Bahner held possession well in the midfield before sliding to center back for the final 20 minutes due to an injury, helping Harrisburg hold on for the victory.

City Islanders is currently tied for 10th in the league with four points (1-2-1), but stands just four point out of third place in the table. Harrisburg retruns home on Friday, May 2, to host Charleston.

Williams and Dayton Dutch Lions FC are currently in a three-way tie for fourth place with seven points and a 2-2-1 record. Williams is still the only keeper Dayton has used, allowing nine goals for a 1.80 goals against average, making 19 saves.

Dutch Lions is at home this week, also hosting Charleston, on Sunday, May 4. The match is set for 7:00 p.m. at Beavercreek High School.
