Austin FC looks to keep pace in West race, hosts Orlando City SC for 1st time

AUSTIN (KXAN) — It’s another opportunity Sunday for Austin FC to show it belongs in Major League Soccer’s upper echelon against a quality opponent in Orlando City SC.

Coming off perhaps its biggest win of the season on the road Wednesday against league-leading LAFC, Austin will try to keep the momentum going against the Lions at Q2 Stadium. Orlando is coming off a 1-0 win over Toronto FC on May 14 that took last-minute heroics to secure three points. Kyle Smith scored in the second minute of stoppage time to break a scoreless tie after his club controlled most of the match.
