MOST COMMENTED

[USL PRO REWIND: Week 17] Jamie Watson scored a goal in each half to propel first-place Orlando City to a 2-1 win over Charleston Battery in front of 8,729 fans -- a club mid-week record crowd -- at the Florida Citrus Bowl. The game marked the debut of 2011 MLS Rookie of the Year C.J. Sapong, who joined Orlando on loan from Sporting Kansas City.

“It’s a huge relief to get this tonight,” said Orlando City coach Adrian Heath. “After losing players and a few past results, it was important to get three points.”

Defender Kevin Ellis and Sapong arrived in Central Florida earlier in the afternoon and both started.

-- In his pro debut, Lalo Fernandez, on loan from Real Salt Lake, made two saves and earned the shutout in Phoenix FC's 1-0 win over Antigua Barracuda FC, which fell to 0-18-0 with the loss.
