Move out of the way, Orlando City. There’s a new USL PRO regular season champion in town.

The Richmond Kickers claimed the 2013 regular season title at home on Wednesday night, defeating Orlando City, 2-0, in a battle of the top two teams in USL PRO. Matt Delicate provided both of the goals for Richmond, scoring five minutes apart in the first half off assists by Joseph Ngwenya and Houston Dynamo loanee Brian Ownby.

The Kickers’ win gave them the No. 1 seed for the upcoming playoffs and home-field advantage throughout the postseason. It also ended Orlando City’s two-year run as regular season champions.
