[USL PRO] Defending champion Orlando City went 17-1-6 in the regular season, but it must play the No. 5 seed Wilmington Hammerheads, the only team to beat it, in the USL PRO semifinals at the Florida Citrus Bowl. In Friday's other semifinals, the No. 2 seed Rochester Rhinos will play the No. 3 seed Charleston Battery, which beat them, 4-0, when they met last time at Sahlen’s Stadium.

Playing on loan from the New York Red Bulls, Corey Hertzog had two goals and an assist in Wilmington’s 3-1 win against Orlando at Legion Stadium on June 2, while Bryce Taylor had the goal as they earned a 1-1 draw at the Florida Citrus Bowl on July 25.

Rochester is only 6-4-2 at Sahlen’s Stadium this season. One of the four home defeats came earlier this month at the hands of the Battery, which took a 4-0 victory behind two goals and an assist from former Rhino Tony Donatelli.
