[USL PRO: Week 15] Orlando City extended its unbeaten streak to 16 games with a 3-0 win over the third-place LA Galaxy II. Corey Hertzog scored two goals for the first time since joining Orlando City, and USL PRO leading scorer Kevin Molino scored his 11th goal of the season.

“I think we’re good enough to have those kind of runs, so I’m not surprised,” said Orlando coach Adrian Heath on the unbeaten streak. “But we have to keep it going now, and that’s the standard that we set for ourselves. We’ve been a work in progress but things are getting better. Our combination play has improved and so has the players’ ability to understand their roles.”

Two other teams with long unbeaten streaks, Wilmington and Richmond, played to a 1-1 draw at Legion Stadium. Midfielder Tom Parratt scored the lone goal for the Hammerheads, now unbeaten in nine games, while defender Hugh Roberts tallied his first goal of the season to equalize for the second-place Kickers, who have not lost in 13 games.

OKC Energy FC extended its unbeaten streak to six games with a 2-0 win over Sacramento Republic FC in front of 3,643 fans. Mark Howard had his first goal of the season with a header off an Adda Djeziri corner kick for the winner in the 53rd minute.

Three unanswered goals, including a stoppage-time winner from Andrew Hoxie in the 94th minute, propelled the Orange County Blues to a 3-2 victory at Arizona United.
