After conceding an early goal, Orlando City appeared to be in a bit of trouble. However, Kevin Molino led a second half goal explosion that yielded the first win of the Jason Kreis era.

Molino provided two goals and an assist, leading Orlando City to a 3-1 win over the New England Revolution on Sunday.

Kamara opened the scoring in the 18th minute, giving the Revs an early road advantage. In all alone on Joe Bendik, Kamara fired to the near post for his fourth goal since joining the Revs.

Less than a minute into the second half, Cyle Larin leveled the scoreline on a pass from Kaka, as Larin fired for his 11th finish of the season. Played in by Kevin Molino, Kaka flicked the pass towards Larin, who finished with his left foot to make it 1-1.

Molino added a goal of his own 18 minutes later to complete the Orlando City comeback, heading home a cross from Brek Shea to push the lead to 2-1. Molino sealed his brace, firing home another Kaka assist to seal three points for the Lions.

However, there was one uplifting moment for the Revs. Charlie Davies, who announced on Saturday that he had been battling cancer that is now in remission, returned to action in the 75th minute for the first time since

The win pushes Orlando City to 26 points through 21 games while earning the first win of the Jason Kreis Ear. The Revs, meanwhile, remain on 26 points as well, but have played one additional game.

Orlando City returns to a action on August 7 for a clash with the Seattle Sounders at Camping World Stadium, while the Revs visit Toronto FC one day earlier.

MATCH TO FORGET

Gershon Koffie entered the game in the second half in place of Chris Tierney, but the Revs midfielder never found his rhythm as Orlando City continued to attack.
