Salles scores five goals in 26 minutes, Dwyer breaks record

[USL PRO REWIND: Week 12] Mauricio Salles scored five goals in the first 26 minutes of the game to lead VSI Tampa Bay FC to an 8-0 win over Antigua Barracuda FC Friday evening. Dom Dwyer broke the USL PRO season scoring record he shared with Jhonny Arteaga of FC New York as first-place Orlando City beat Phoenix FC, 2-0.

“It was a great match," said Salles, who added a second-half assist. "The last two weeks I had a concussion and I was working hard to get back on the field. Finally, I got back on the field and did a great job and it feels great. But more importantly we got the win. It's about the team.”

Dwyer scored two minutes after Jamie Watson put Orlando ahead from the penalty spot before 7,466 fans.

“We started a little slow but when I look at the full body of work I was pleased with the result tonight,” said Orlando City coach Adrian Heath. “We had to be honest with our play against a strong Phoenix side tonight, but I’m happy with the result. “
