It was a tight match for Orlando City SC and the visiting Colorado Rapids for more than an hour on Saturday night until a couple of subsitutes showed up in the second half.
Lions captain Kaka, returning from an injury in the season opener, and Carlos Rivas each scored their first goals of the season to lift Orlando City to a 2-0 victory.
It was the Lions' fifth home win and third clean sheet of the season. They've won four straight games and all five contests at Orlando City Stadium, becoming the first MLS club to open a new facility with five consecutive victories.
25,527 were in attendance as Orlando City improved to 6-1-0, 18 points, while Colorado dropped to 1-5-1, 4 points.
