Match Recap: Toronto FC II at Orlando City B

Orlando – Toronto FC II dropped its second consecutive match in Florida as they fell to Orlando City B 3-1 on Tuesday night.

The Young Reds welcomed captain Mitch Taintor back to the lineup after fully serving his suspension from last season. The defender went 45 minutes before coming off for Brandon Aubrey at the half.

Orlando City dictated the early play, and they found the back of the net in a controversial way. Keeper Angelo Cavalluzzo came out to grab an aerial ball in the 6-yard box when OCB’s Paul Clowes jumped up and seemingly knocked the ball out of Cavalluzzo’s hands. However, no foul was called and the hosts went up 1-0.

The Reds took over the run of play later into the second half. Malik Johnson equalised for TFC II on a beautiful curling shot he put past an outstretched Earl Edwards Jr.

However, right before the end of the half, Canadian Richie Laryea worked his way through the Toronto backline and the ball eventually found first team loanee Hadji Barry who tapped home the go-ahead marker.

OCB continued their offensive assault early in the second half, when Pierre Da Silva out muscled Oyvind Alseth and played a ball across the box for Lewis Neal to tap home.

Da Silva was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Jordan McCrary in the 68th. However, the Reds could not muster much with the advantage and the game ended 3-1.

Toronto FC II is back in action on Friday when they open up their home schedule against the Rochester Rhinos. A limited number of tickets are still available. Kick-off is set for 7:30 PM but arrive early for a special guest signing… and stay until the end for a special gift upon exiting.
