Devorn Jorsling finally capitalized on two spectacular goals in the first match of the 2011 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. Frustrated with his past performances, Jorsling could finally celebrate what he had been waiting for all season long and help secure Orlando City’s 4-0 victory.
Jorsling played in nine games prior to this and knew that he needed to take advantage of his time on the field. His impressive diving header to exploit on his first goal was an incredible personal victory for Jorsling and he continued to thrive off the energy he received from that moment.
“It felt wonderful. It feels like a weight is off my shoulders and I’ve got a bit of confidence going into the game on Saturday. My confidence is high and if I get opportunities again I’ll put them in the goal.”
Jorsling’s diving header was the start of his self-assurance and it escalated even further when he found himself blasting a second goal in the back of the net. He proved to the team and the fans that he was certainly capable of being a game-changer. His confidence will hopefully ignite into Saturday’s match and give The Lions an advantage on their attack.
“With him being a goal scorer throughout his career getting those goals on the score sheet will be a huge boost for his confidence,” said Coach Heath. “Hopefully this could be the start of him really getting in with the team and start scoring some more goals.”
Saturday’s nationally televised match will be Jorsling’s first chance to show that he’s back on form. The game will be broadcast on FOX Soccer Channel. Kickoff is set for 7:30 pm. For tickets and information, call 407-536-5368 before it’s too late!
