[USL PRO: Week 11] Defending champion Orlando City looks to extend its unbeaten streak to 12 games when it hosts the Charleston Battery on Saturday night. Orlando is coming off a 4-1 win over the NASL's Tampa Bay Rowdies, their I-4 archrival, in the U.S. Open Cup on Wednesday. It has not lost to a pro team since a 3-0 loss to MLS's Chicago Fire in its first preseason game in February.

Saturday’s match will mark the third meeting between the two teams in the opening two months of the 2014 USL PRO campaign. Orlando opened its title defense with a 1-1 draw at Blackbaud Stadium before securing a 1-0 win over the Battery at home to improve to 7-0-0 all-time against the Charleston Battery at home.

Midfielder Kevin Molino, who leads USL PRO with eight goals, added two more in the win over the Rowdies. All the scoring in that match came in the first half.

Charleston fell to the Orlando City U23s of the PDL, 12-11, on penalties in its third round U.S. Open Cup match. The Battery had come back from two goals down in the first half to tie the U23s but fell in a shootout that went 14 rounds.
