ORLANDO, Fla. (May 22, 2019) - Orlando City B (1-5-2, 5 points) remains at home for a midweek game against the Richmond Kickers (3-2-2, 11 points) on Wednesday, May 20. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. ET at Montverde Academy.

Midfielders Moises Tablante and Thiago De Souza registered their first professional goals that gave OCB the 2-0 victory over Toronto FC II. Tablante is a product of Orlando City’s Development Academy and a SIMA participant. De Souza previously played with Orlando City’s partner club, Clube Atlético Paranaense, where he played in 12 matches and scored two goals.

Richmond enters the game off of a 1-0 loss against the Greenville Triumph. Wednesday’s match will serve as the Kickers third away match in a week.

OCB will visit Kino North Stadium when they face FC Tucson on Friday, May 31 with a  7:30 p.m. kickoff. The young Lions will return home for another quick turnaround with two games in less than a week as they host Forward Madison on Friday, June 7 and FC Tucson on Wednesday, June 12.
