Orlando, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Aurelien Collin scored at the death to rescue a point for Orlando City on Friday in a hard-fought 2-2 draw with the New England Revolution at the Citrus Bowl.
Orlando entered the match still searching for its first win of the season on home soil, but a dramatic rally from two goals down will have to do as Collin and rookie Cyle Larin found the back of the net for the Lions, who improved to nine points.
New England, meanwhile, was looking to win its fourth consecutive game and looked to have three points in the bag thanks to goals from Charlie Davies and Kelyn Rowe, but Jay Heaps' club will have to settle for a single point on the night.
New England opened the scoring after 19 minutes with some excellent high pressure which caused Amobi Okugo to turn the ball over and Davies pounced on it for his fourth goal in as many games.
The visitors were gifted a second goal in the 71st minute when Rafael Ramos attempted a chest pass back to goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts, but it was expertly anticipated and cut out by Rowe, who rounded Ricketts and slotted home for a goal in his 100th appearance in a Revolution kit.
Orlando finally pulled one back in the 75th minute to end a lengthy scoreless streak when Ramos atoned for his earlier error by sending a great cross into the box for Larin to knock home.
As the clock ticked into added time, the Lions came up with a potentially season-changing goal as the former Sporting Kansas City man, Collin, got on the end of a cross from Luke Boden and nodded it past Revs goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth.
