October seems so long ago but what better way to get back on track with a Pre-Season win.
Saturday night at Exploria Stadium, the Lions gave their fans a great preview of what ‘could be’ for 2020. The first half started off a bit slow with what appeared to be both teams gauging the pace of play. At the 11th minute of play however, Dwyer attempted to put one in via header off a crossed ball from Rosell to no avail.
The real excitement started when Nani was tripped up by Montreal thus allowing for a free kick from about 20 yards… yeah Nani put that one in the net. This goal put Orlando up 1-0 at the 39 minute mark but would be the only goal of the game. Nani celebrated and the crowd went crazy.
This, albeit a pre-season match, was the the right way to start. It was an exciting game with a new coach, new approach and new jerseys. Hopefully all those in attendance go off and share what a great time they had and ticket sales soar! If you too want to join in on the fun check out all the options on their OFFICIAL PAGE.
