[USL PRO] Top seed Orlando City needed overtime to beat the Charleston Battery, 3-1, before 7,609 fans at the Florida Citrus Bowl to advance to USL PRO's American Division final. Other divisional semifinal winners were the Richmond Kickers, Rochester Lancers and Harrisburg City Islanders.

ORLANDO CITY-CHARLESTON (3-1). Dennis Chin and Lewis Neal scored in overtime to rescue Orlando City. “I looked at my players after regulation and said it can’t end this way,” Orlando City coach Adrian Heath said. “We were the better team. We just needed the extra time to show it.”
