RICHMOND, Va. – Hadji Barry tallied his fifth goal of the season Saturday, providing the difference for visiting Orlando City B in a 1-0 victory over the Richmond Kickers at City Stadium. The goal came in the 24th minute when 2017 USL 20 Under 20 headliner Pierre Da Silva flashed his skill in working an opportunity on the left wing, delivering a ball that deflected its way to the feet of Barry who did well to keep his shot inside the far post for the decisive tally. Despite being reduced to 10 men when Zach Carroll was issued a second yellow card in stoppage time, Orlando extended its unbeaten run to eight games – breaking a string of six consecutive draws and improving to 6-6-10 overall (28pts) and 5-4-3 on the road in the process. After dropping the opener of a three game homestand, Richmond now stands at 3-12-8 (17pts) overall and 3-6-3 at home.
