Orlando City sets MLS record for goals conceded

In Wednesday night’s game against the Seattle Sounders, Orlando City SC allowed two goals, their 71st and 72nd of the current MLS season. These goals broke the record for goals conceded in a single MLS season, breaking MNUFC’s mark set just last year. OCSC has two remaining games to further set the bar for a record they are undoubtedly not proud to own.
