KISSIMMEE, Fla. (July 23, 2023) — Orlando City B (10-7-2, 33 points) earned another come-from-behind win on Sunday night, this time taking a 3-2 victory over Chicago Fire II (6-7-6, 25 points) at Osceola County Stadium.  
The match saw forward Jack Lynn put up his third multi-goal performance of the year, scoring what served as his 11th and 12th goals of the campaign to lead the Lions to a victory. Orlando City B captain Juninho also found the back of the net in the contest, good for his fourth goal in 2023. 
The win served as the Lions’ seventh at Osceola County Stadium this campaign, now holding a 7-1-2 record in Kissimmee through 10 contests. The side will now turn its attention to a visit to New York Red Bulls II, set for Monday, July 31 at MSU Soccer Park.

Scoring Summary:

10’ Jack Lynn (Imanol Almaguer) — ORL 1, CHI 0
The Lions got on the board with Imanol Almaguer lofting a ball into the box from the right flank, curling it just enough to find a running Jack Lynn at the far post who was able to head it in for the finish.

35’ Billy Hency (Charlie Ostrem) — ORL 1, CHI 1
The Fire leveled with Charlie Ostrem getting free in behind the Lions defense, driving towards the area before laying a ball across the face of goal for Billy Hency to tap in for the equalizer.

50’ Luka Prpa (Omar Glasgow) — CHI 2, ORL 1
The visitors took the lead just after the break with Omar Glasgow getting free in transition, taking the ball up the pitch before sending a ball through for Luka Prpa at the far post, who was able to create enough space for himself for the finish.

64’ Juninho (Jhon Solís) — ORL 2, CHI 2
Orlando City B leveled things once more with Jhon Solís finding Juninho just outside the box. The Vasco da Gama-product was able to dribble past a pair of Chicago defenders and keep his balance long enough to poke his shot into the back of the net.

The Lions regained the lead with Jhon Solís finding Moises Tablante on the left flank, with the OCB winger beating his man before firing a cross into the box. Tablante’s effort found the foot of Jack Lynn at the near post for his second goal of the night.
