Orange County SC will seek to extend their winning streak to five games as they take on Las Vegas Lights for the second time in 10 days Tuesday evening, this time in Nevada.
OCSC are flying at the moment, unbeaten on the season and with four wins in a row, most recently a 2-1 road win over LA Galaxy II Saturday. The turnaround will be quick and involves some travel, but Orange County just beat Vegas and look like they can still get better.
But don’t overlook Las Vegas. After a bumpy restart they are starting to find their footing, with a good win over Tacoma Defiance last week followed up with an impressive comeback draw against Phoenix Rising over the weekend. Given the heat and the games piling up of late, I think heavy legs could be an issue for Vegas, but head coach Frank Yallop will likely aim to keep a good thing going and stick with the players who have been landing results in the last couple games.
Orange County may be in good form, but they still don’t lead Group B because they have games in hand, and now is not the ideal time to peak, the playoffs are. I still think Braeden Cloutier’s group still have room to grow and improve this season, but they shouldn’t overlook an improving Vegas side. This should be another good one.
Tale of the Tape:
Orange County SC: 14 points (4-0-2); Goal Difference: +5; Last five games: W-W-W-W-D
Las Vegas Lights: 5 points (1-3-2), Goal Difference: -1; Last five games: D-W-L-L-L
