Austin, TX (July 12, 2019) Tomorrow night, Austin Bold FC are back in Bold Stadium to take on Orange County SC at 7:30 PM CT. This is the second meeting between the USL Championship Western Conference clubs. The first match ended with a 2-2 draw at Championship Soccer Stadium in Irvine California. The Bold took an early lead with goals from Jorge Troncoso and Andre Lima, but OCSC found a response through Darwin Jones and Aodhan Quinn. Austin’s Own looks to bounce back after a disappointing 3-0 loss to I-35 rivals San Antonio FC at Toyota Field, their first league defeat since May. The California side looks to continue their momentum after an impressive 1-2 victory against Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC at Weidner Field, their first win since June 1. Recently, Orange County SC added U.S. international Michael Orozco. The former Club Tijuana defender adds much needed defensive stability to visiting team.
