A Disappointing loss for the Orlando City Lions in U.S. Open Cup
The motivated Fort Lauderdale Strikers defeated the Orlando City Lions 2-1 in extra time. Fort Lauderdale defender PC scored in the 120th minute.
“I think we’re all frustrated that we haven’t progressed. We can play better. But we had opportunities and we should’ve won the game,” Lions Head Coach Adrian Heath said. “I thought [in the] second half, when we got higher up the pitch and put them under pressure, I thought there was only one team that was going to win it. As I said, we had chances to have won the game.”
I was a very frustrating game for both teams; In fact, there were several heated moments between the Orlando City Players and the players fro Fort Lauderdale Strikers.
