[USL PRO: Semifinals] Orlando City jumped ahead 2-0 after five minutes -- just like it had done in the quarterfinals -- and 3-0 after 19 minutes, then held on to beat the defending champion Charleston Battery, 3-2, before 8,912 fans at the Florida Citrus Bowl and move into the USL PRO final.

“We put the game away after the first few goals, but gifted them back into the game,” said Orlando City coach Adrian Heath. “We’ll move on and try to win next week.”

Long Tan and Renan Boufleur made it 2-0 after five minutes en route to a 5-0 win over Pittsburgh, but after going ahead on goals by Tan in the fourth minute, Adama Mbengue a minute later and Dennis Chin in the 19th minute, Charleston dug and shut out Orlando the rest of the way.

Goals by midfielder Michael Azira and Amadou Sanyang made it 3-2 with half an hour to play.

Red cards to Tan and Colin Flave left each team with 10 men for the last 15 minutes of the match. The ejection leaves Tan unavailable for the championship match against Saturday night’s Richmond-Charlotte winner.
