Orange County SC comes in to this match hurting, following a 4-0 loss at home to Colorado Springs Switchbacks on Tuesday.
The result was made all the more frustrating considering that Orange County dominated possession, with 62% but still conceded four goals for the second time this season.

This will be the first meeting of the two sides since Swope Park triumphed in extra time in the 2016 USL Playoffs.
