MLS: Orlando Earns Come From Behind Draw in Nashville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Orlando City SC (8-4-7, 31 points) battled back from a one-goal first half deficit to draw host Nashville SC (7-2-11, 32 points) 1-1 on Wednesday night, as the two sides each walk away from the match with a point and now sit just one point apart in the Eastern Conference standings.

Mason Stajduhar made his fourth-straight regular season start between the pipes for City, recording three saves to remain unbeaten to start his MLS career.

Tesho Akindele and Benji Michel led the Lions with three shots apiece, with the former coming inches from scoring on a 75th-minute header off the crossbar as the visitors pushed for the go-ahead goal.

City faces a quick turnaround, heading home to face Chicago Fire FC on Saturday, Aug. 21 at Exploria Stadium in an 8 p.m. ET kickoff.
