Orlando stroll to 3-0 win over Cavalry in Champions Cup first leg

Orlando City SC beat the Cavalry FC 3-0 in CONCACAF Champions Champions Cup action at Starlight Stadium on Wednesday.

Facundo Torres had two goals while Duncan McGuire scored the opener, and eventual winner, for the U.S. side.

The opening leg of the first-round game was played on the artificial turf of Starlight Stadium in Langford, B.C., rather than Cavalry’s home venue of ATCO Field at Spruce Meadows due to the Alberta winter.

Orlando outshot their Canadian counterparts 13-8 and enjoyed more possession in the win.

Cavalry opens the CPL regular season April 13 at Forge with its home opener not until April 28.

The return leg is Feb. 27 at Orlando’s Inter&Co Stadium.
