Striking Early and Often

Orlando City B have scored a season-high three goals in each of the last two games against Columbus Crew 2 and New York Red Bulls II. It’s also the team’s longest streak of games with at least three goals since they went four-straight games between August 9 and September 3, 2023. The Lions also scored three goals in the first 15 minutes between the last two matches and have tallied five total goals in the first halves over that same span of games.

Playing Fair

The Lions have been able to keep themselves out of trouble through the first nine games of the 2024 MLS NEXT Pro regular season. Orlando City B has committed only 98 fouls this season, fifth lowest in MLS NEXT Pro, and one of only six teams to have less than 100. On the flip side, the Lions rank third in fouls suffered with teams committing 140 on OCB through the team’s first nine contests.

Looking for Payback

The Lions and Huntsville City have only played three times in MLS NEXT Pro action to date, and both have a win, loss and draw on their records. However, Huntsville City FC has taken four points over the team’s last two matchups, with a 6-2 win on July 9, 2023, and point in a 1-1 draw in which they fell to OCB in the end-of-regulation shootout 4-3 earlier this season. The Lions will be back at home this weekend where they won via a 2-1 scoreline their only previous home matchup against Huntsville City in 2023.

Shak Attack

Orlando City B forward Shak Mohammed continues to play a crucial part in the revived Lions offense. With a goal last Wednesday against Columbus Crew 2, Mohammed has scored in three-straight games, and four of the last six since contests that he’s started in. Mohammed leads the team and is tied for seventh overall in MLS NEXT Pro with four tallies on the season.
