Orlando City Plays Back-To-Back Road Matches Friday, Saturday
ORLANDO, Fla.- After defeating the Seattle Sounders Reserves 2-0 Sunday night, Orlando City (6-1-1, 19 points) continues play away from home this Friday and Saturday against the Harrisburg City Islanders (5-1-0, 15 points) and Rochester Rhinos (1-5-1, 4 points). The games will kick off at 7 p.m. and 7:05 p.m., respectively and will be livestreamed on USLNation.com.
Harrisburg currently sits third in the USL PRO table with five wins in six games played. The City Islanders are 2-1-0 at home, with their only loss coming at the hands of second-place Charleston Battery on May 1. The club is led by Forwards Luckymore Mkosana and Sainey Touray, who have a combined seven goals and 24 shots between the two. The Lions have yet to face the Islanders in 2013, but hold a 4-0-0 record all-time vs. the Pennsylvania-based club.
The Rochester Rhinos have gotten off to a rough start in 2013, sitting third from the bottom of the league table with five losses in seven games played. Rochester's lone win came against Wilmington in their last match played, topping the Hammerheads 1-0 behind a Matthew Horth goal in the 79th minute of play. Orlando downed Rochester 3-1 at home on April 14 in the lone meeting between the two clubs in 2013, with three different players scoring in the win.
The Lions most recently defeated the Sounders Reserves, marking their third-straight win of the season. Sporting Kansas City loanee and Orlando Forward Dom Dwyer scored a brace in the win, improving his goal total to a league-best 10 through eight games played. The franchise record for most goals scored is 11 (Dennis Chin, 2012), with Dwyer approaching that mark with 18 regular season matches left in 2013.
