Orlando City carries series edge into final
[USL PRO: Final] A crowd of more than 10,000 is expected for Saturday's USL PRO championship between No. 2 seed Orlando City and No. 5 seed Charlotte Eagles at the
Florida Citrus Bowl. Orlando, which is looking for its second USL PRO title in three seasons, has never lost in six games against the Eagles, who are aiming for their third USL championship.
If its attack didn't need any help -- it won its first two playoff games by 5-0 and 3-2 -- Orlando has been boosted by the return of co-Golden Boot winner Dom
Dwyer for Saturday’s game from their MLS partner Sporting Kansas City.
Dwyer scored 15 goals in 13 games to start the season before he returned to Kansas City and has since
recorded his first goals in MLS and CONCACAF Champions League play. The Englishman will join an attack that has seen Dennis Chin record two goals and two
assists in the postseason.
Charlotte has already won twice on the road in the playoffs with a 3-1 victory over the Harrisburg City Islanders and 2-1 win over the regular-season champion
Orlando is 4-0-2 all-time against Charlotte. The two teams played to a 1-1 draw on April 23, and Orlando took a 1-0 win in the final game of the regular season for
both teams on Aug. 17.
