Orange County SC News Release

Where: Segra Field (Leesburg, VA)

Orange County SC heads to the East Coast for the second time this year, as they face Loudoun United in Leesburg, VA for the first time in club history. The Black and Orange will look to get back in the win column as they push for playoff positioning.

LOUDOUN AREN'T MAKING MUCH NOISE...

Loudoun United enters Saturday's match in 9th place in the USL Championship's Eastern Conference on 20 points. This is the club's first season as an independent club, no longer the reserve team of MLS side D.C. United. Attain Sports and Entertainment purchased a majority stake in the side from D.C. United in February of this year. The Red-and-White will be playing their third game in seven days when the Black and Orange come to town Saturday, coming off a 1-0 loss to LouCity on Saturday and a 1-1 result on Wednesday in Detroit. This will be their first of the three in front of the Loudoun Stampede, where they are 4-5-1 so far this season. Forward Zachary Ryan leads Loudoun with eight goals so far this season.

2023 Regular Season Record: 6-13-2 (9th in USL-C Eastern Conference)

BLACK AND ORANGE MARCH ON LEESBURG

Orange County SC are looking for a bounce back performance after their 2-0 defeat to Rio Grande Valley FC Toros in Edinburg, TX last week. It ended a streak of three straight wins for OCSC. A potential bright side? The last time the Black and Orange suffered a loss, was when they began the three game win streak. Their last time to the East Coast, they earned a point in a 1-1 draw with Hartford Athletic in April. They have played Loudoun United once before, last year at The Champ when they defeated the former D.C. United reserve squad 3-1 behind a brace from forward Milan Iloski, including a rocket in the fourth minute of stoppage time that sealed the victory, and a penalty save from goalkeeper Colin Shutler. Both players received USL Championship Team of the Week selections for their performances. Saturday's match will be a homecoming for Shutler, as the Middleburg, VA native played for Loudoun United's youth clubs growing up 30 minutes away from Leesburg.
