Unbeaten Orlando City is back on top

[USL PRO: Week 6] Midfielder Kevin Molino, one of the players signed for Orlando City's MLS launch in 2015, scored twice on Tuesday night as the defending USL PRO champion defeated the FC Dallas Reserves, 3-2, at Toyota Park. The win moved Orlando City back into first place ahead of LA Galaxy II and kept it unbeaten through five games.

The win was Orlando's third in a row following victories against the Rochester Rhinos and Charleston Battery. But after failing to score more than one goal in three out of its four opening matches, Orlando City put more pace into the lineup that included Dennis Chin, Adama Mbengue and FC Dallas loan player Brian Span, and it paid off as Orlando was dangerous on the counter.

Mbengue had the lone first-half goal, while Molino scored off a Mbengue cross in the 47th minute and added a second goal after academy player Diego de la Tejera reduced the deficit for FC Dallas. Walker Zimmerman added the second Dallas goal in stoppage time.
