Frankowski picked up his fourth and fifth goals of the season in a pair of unique second half finishes. In the 66th minute, Frankowski found himself on top of the ball inside the Orlando city 18-yard box with his back to goal on a feed from Aleksandar Katai and a dummy from Dax McCarty. Rather than turning, the Polish international placed a firm backheel into the bottom corner of the net past goalkeeper Brian Rowe to extend the Fire's lead to 4-1.

The 24-year-old capped the afternoon with the Fire's fifth goal in the 87th minute. After creating space with a dummy on a Bastian Schweinsteiger pass, Frankowski pulled down a Nemanja Nikolić chip and lofted a ball over Rower from a tight angle. Frankowski was first to the ball as it fell, and headed home his second goal of the day.
