TAMPA, Fla. – Orlando City B midfielder Serginho has won the USL League One Fans’ Choice Goal of the Month for May of the 2019 season for an outstanding long-range finish that helped the Lions claim victory against the Richmond Kickers at Montverde Academy on May 22.
The Brazilian has been part of a major improvement in form by OCB throughout the second half of May that currently sees the side on a four-game undefeated streak that has seen it score nine goals. Against the Kickers, Serginho picked up possession after a challenge on a teammate by a Kickers defender sent the ball to his feet, whereupon he took one touch to settle and the next to unleash a 25-yard strike into the top-left corner of the net.
Serginho’s goal earned 42 percent of the poll conducted online at USLLeagueOne.com over the past weekend. His teammate Rafael Santos finished second on 30 percent for his precisely-placed free kick from 30 yards during OCB’s visit to FC Tucson, while North Texas SC’s Ricardo Pepi finished third on 20 percent for his outstanding free kick to the top-right corner of the net against Lansing Ignite FC.
