Ghanaian left back Abass Mohammed played the entire duration but compatriot Ropapa Mensah was benched as Harrisburg City Islanders made it two straight wins in the United Soccer League on Saturday against Bethlehem Steel.  

Abass was key as City Islanders needed a last-gasp strike from Jamaican midfielder Benbow to salvage 3-2 victory and maximum points in front of home fans.

Aaron Wheeler opened the scoring in the 9th minute and doubled the lead in the 21st minute before the visitors halved the deficit before break.

After recess, Nanco restored parity with a neat effort for Bethlehem but 84th minute substitution by coach Bill Beecher paid dividends as substitute Benbow scored with couple of seconds to end the match.
