Certified Bangers

The Lions have scored some incredible goals in their 2023 regular-season campaign and are some of the league leaders for goals scored from outside the 18-yard box. OCB sits second in the league with 11 total on the year, trailing only Philadelphia Union II with 13. Forward Jack Lynn and midfielder Moises Tablante have combined for five of those strikes, with Lynn tallying three from outside the box and Tablante with two, respectively.

Dropping Dimes

Orlando City B has been deadly with its passing throughout the 2023 MLS NEXT Pro regular season, keeping near the top of the league in key passes completed with two games left to play in this year’s campaign. The Lions have completed a total of 263 key passes, a number that currently sits third in the league. OCB also sits third in assists in 2023 with 39 total helpers to date.

Closing in on History

With two games left in the 2023 MLS NEXT Pro regular season, Orlando City B is looking to qualify for the playoffs for the first time in the Club’s young history. The Lions currently sit in fifth place in the Eastern Conference and are five points above the playoff line, with six points available in the last three games of the year. OCB is set to face Chicago Fire FC II (above the line) and FC Cincinnati 2 (eliminated) in its last games of the regular season.
