Forward Alex Dixon leads the side in goals this year with eight and his attack partner Christian Volesky is right behind him with seven.

Orange County SC recorded their first back-to-back victory of the season after their 1-0 win against Detroit City FC last Saturday. Forward Milan Iloski scored his seventh goal of the season with a towering header. Iloski now finds himself in third place in the USL Championship Golden Boot Race, just two behind the league leaders. Goalkeeper Colin Shutler kept his fourth clean sheet in five matches, making six saves against DCFC at Keyworth Stadium, including a USL Championship Fans' Choice Save of the Week nominee. Shutler's strong play of late has been one of the catalysts to OCSC's resurgence over the last month.
