Dominic Dwyer continues hot streak as Orlando City downs Philadelphia

CHESTER, Pa. -- Dominic Dwyer scored his 99th career goal from Sacha Kljestan's 86th assist as Orlando City beat the Philadelphia Union 2-0 on Friday night.

Orlando won for just the second time in its last nine road games. Philadelphia is winless in its last four matches.

Dwyer gave Orlando City its first lead of the season in the 38th minute. Kljestan chipped it over the defense and Dwyer timed his run perfectly to curl it around a charging Andre Blake.

Seven minutes later, Chris Mueller dribbled it from near midfield and capitalized on a defensive giveaway at the top of the 18-yard box for the rookie's second goal.

Dwyer, who nearly made it 3-0 in the 90th minute, has four goals in his last three games after missing the opening three matches due to injury. Kljestan's assist tied Andy Williams (1998-2011) for ninth in league history.

Orlando goalkeeper Joe Bendik dove to deny Fabrice-Jean Picault's breakaway shot in the 55th minute to preserve his clean sheet.
