Today in Central Florida sports history: Kaká scores game-winner for the Lions

Former Orlando City captain Kaká sealed one of the club’s most dramatic and thrilling victories on this date in 2016.

Cyle Larin scored early for Orlando, but the Reds responded with a goal from Jordan Hamilton in the 47th minute. Fan favorite Adrian Winter fired up Orlando City supporters at Camping World Stadium when he scored in the 83rd minute, but Giovinco set up Justin Morrow for what seemed to be a crushing equalizer in the 90th minute.

However, during Orlando’s last push into the penalty area, Drew Moor shoved down Julio “The Beast” Baptista in the box, prompting referee Ismail Elfath to signal for a penalty.
