The Heat are 8-3 at home and look to end the season in front of their home faithful with a win. Last weekend, Harrisburg won two home matches over Mississauga and Baltimore and William Banahene was pivotal in both. Banahene earned Man of the Match honors against the Metro Stars and had the game winning assist on the Tavoy Morgan overtime winner over the Blast. Ricardo Carvalho will look to end their season as a top 10 scorer in the MASL. Carvalho is currently 8th in the league with 47 points. The HEAT now boast two top 10 defenders in the league in blocks with Danny DiPrima and Nelson Santana, each with 26 blocks on the year.

Damion Graham (26) and Matthew Rios (21) are also key to the offensive side of the Metro Stars game. Joshua Paredes leads the team in blocks with 21.
