Rangers loanee Cammy Palmer netted a goal and bagged an assist for Orange County SC last night as they extended their run of wins to four games with a 2-1 win over LA Galaxy II.
Palmer scored the winner just before the hour mark, taking a touch before unleashing a right-footed strike to extend his side’s unbeaten start to the season and push his side into second place in Group B of the United Soccer League Championship standings.
The Gers’ partner club sits six points behind leaders Phoenix Rising but have three games in hand over the side part-owned by Chelsea icon Didier Drogba.
Palmer was pleased to get his name on the scoresheet and admitted after the game that he wants to add more goals and assists – with even his dad encouraging him to shoot more often.
I want to start adding goals and assists to my game,” Palmer said, as quoted by the LA Times.
“Everyone just keeps telling me to shoot more, especially my dad. He’s getting on me for not taking shots in games, so coming into the season, I just set myself some targets to try to hit, and so I’m just fortunate today that I got a goal and an assist, but also more importantly, get the win for the team.”

Palmer is one of three young Gers on loan with the SoCal side, joining Danny Finlayson and Matty Shiels and the trio have made good starts as US soccer gets back on its feet after the Coronavirus outbreak.
Next up for the Rangers loanees and their loan side is a trip to Sin City to face Las Vegas Lights on Tuesday night.
