[USL PRO REWIND: Week 6] Dom Dwyer, who is playing on loan from MLS's Sporting Kansas City, scored two goals to give him a league-high five goals in Orlando City' 4-0 win over the Dayton Dutch Lions in front of a regular-season record crowd -- the second in two weeks -- of 9,589 fans at the Florida Citrus Bowl.

“It was a very good, professional performance tonight,” said Orlando City coach Adrian Heath. “I’m proud of the boys.“

Dennis Chin, the 2012 USL PRO scoring champion who was making his first start for Orlando in the 2013 regular season, opened the scoring and after Dwyer made it 2-0, the Englishman was taken down for a penalty Jamie Watson converted to make it 3-0 after only 39 minutes.

Orlando City-Dayton Highlights:



-- Lucky Mkosana scored twice as the Harrisburg City Islanders won their 100th game in team history with a 5-1 win over the struggling Rochester Rhinos. Philadelphia Union loan player Jimmy McLaughlin, Yann Ekra and Sainey Touray also scored for the City Islanders. Former Islander Bilal Duckett scored the lone goal for Rochester, which is 0-4-1.

-- Midfielder Mike Azira scored both goals to give the Charleston Battery a 2-0 win over the Pittsburgh Riverhounds  in front of 3,262 fans at Blackbaud Stadium.
