The Rochester Rhinos lost to the Orlando City Lions on Saturday night by a 2-1 score in a lightning delayed contest at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando.

Rochester took the lead in the 15th minute as a deep corner by Alfonso Motagalvan found Tony Donatelli at the far post for a low finish inside the left post.

The Lions hit back in the 38th minute as new acquisition Matt Luzunarsis headed home from Jack Traynor's cross from the left before Lewis Neal curled home a free kick three minutes later to give his side a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

The loss drops the Rhinos to 9-6-3 although they maintain their four point lead over Harrisburg after the Islanders dropped a 3-1 decision to the Wilmington Hammerheads, The Rhinos will return home to host the Pittsburgh Riverhounds next Friday in the USL PRO Game of the Week on FOX Soccer at Sahlen's Stadium at 8 p.m.
