Orlando got back in the game in the 36th minute when Alexandre Pato volleyed an equalizer from atop the box.
Forgotten along the left side of the box, Joao Moutinho scored against his former club to level the score a second time in the 45th minute.
Kwadwo Opoku then added a stoppage-time insurance goal on a counterattack to seal LAFC's 4-2 victory.
- THE BIG PICTURE: LAFC remain undefeated with a 4W-0L-1D record to start the season. The Black & Gold will look to continue their impressive start next week when they visit the LA Galaxy for El Trafico. Orlando had some strong sequences, but couldn't muster up enough to meet the visitors' strength.
- MOMENT OF THE MATCH: Cristian Arango latched onto the end of an overhead through ball from Carlos Vela, then sent over a beautiful cross for Brian Rodriguez to notch LAFC’s opening goal.
- MAN OF THE MATCH: Ilie Sanchez’s vision gave LAFC all three points in Central Florida. The central midfielder isn’t known for his goals but his individual effort allowed his team to keep their undefeated record.
