Carolina RailHawks vs. Puerto Rico Islanders 

When: Sat., Oct. 30 2010

Duke won a basketball championship earlier this season, and the Durham Bulls came just short of defending their Triple-A championship. Not a bad haul, but there's actually time for one more title in the Triangle this year. The Cary-based Carolina RailHawks, who play in the second division of the professional soccer tier of the U.S. and Canada, face the Puerto Rico Islanders tonight at 7 to determine the victor of the USSF-D2 Pro League championship. The opposition is formidable: Although the Islanders entered the postseason just barely, with an eighth-place finish, they are road-tested and battle-hardened. They raised eyebrows in the soccer world earlier this season when they defeated the Los Angeles Galaxy (and their World Cup stars Landon Donovan and Edson Buddle) in the CONCACAF Champions League, a tournament of top teams in North and Central America. Tonight's game is the second leg of a two-game series, and the RailHawks face an uphill struggle: They lost 2-0 in Puerto Rico on Sunday, meaning that they must win tonight by two goals just to get to overtime. If the game's still tied after the overtime period, a penalty shoot-out will ensue. —David Fellerath
