Orlando, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Orlando City SC won their first home game in MLS on Sunday with a comfortable 4-0 victory over the LA Galaxy at the Citrus Bowl.
Orlando City is looking for their first win at home this season and to snap a four game winless streak. Los Angeles, meanwhile, will be looking to break an uncharacteristic run of four matches without a win following a 2-1 loss to FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium last weekend.
In the 12th minute Rafael Ramos sent a ball across the goal to Brek Shea who headed it back to Eric Avila who headed it home to give Orlando City an early 1-0 lead.
The Lions made it 2-0, when Kaka drove down the field and faked out one defender then brought the Galaxy keeper Jaime Penedo to the left side of the goal and passed to an open Cyle Larin who buried the ball into the back of the net in the 34th minute.
Orlando City would extend their lead to 3-0 in the 56th minute. Kaka was driving in on net when Galaxy keeper Jaime Penedo took Kaka out in the box for a penalty kick. Kaka made no mistake and buried the ball in the left lower corner.
In the 73rd minute, Darwin Ceren put an exclamation point on the performance when he blasted from outside the box and a deflection changed the direction and the goal gave Orlando City all three points.
