It's hard to imagine that after winning the D-2, and after the incredible success they had in CCL qualifying, the Islanders would lose to a local USL Pro squad. Maybe this wasn't the best lineup for the Islanders on that night playing?
Yeah I did notice that and it's actually why I asked the question, LOL! Still sucks though. Hopefully the natives all knew it was a scrap team............ (for attendence sake, which I know isn't a terrible problem there, but still.......)

It wasn't. I believe they field a team of reserves who are mainly based locally. Notice Nicholas Addlery and Bill Gaudette were not in the lineup.
