First-place Orlando City settles for point in Wilmington

[USL PRO REWIND: Week 16] First-place Orlando City rallied from an early deficit to take a 2-1 lead but it had to settle for a 2-2 draw at the Wilmington Hammerheads when it conceded a late penalty kick. The game drew 5,017 fans at Legion Stadium.

After giving up an early goal to Daniel Steres, Orlando went ahead when Jamie Watson chipped keeper Troy Hernandez for his eighth goal of the season and a cross deflected off defender Gareth Evans’ back heel for an own goal, but Steres scored a second goal from the penalty spot to even the score with 10 minutes of play.

Orlando, who now leads second-place Harrisburg by two points and unbeaten Richmond (which has a game in hand) by three, plays on the road Friday at the  fourth-place Charleston Battery.
