Orlando Battles Gwinnett in Back-to-Back Home Games Next Weekend
Orlando, FL – The Solar Bears skated to a 2-0 lead after 40 minutes of action, but a third period comeback by the Florida Everblades sank the Solar Bears to a 4-2 loss in front of 8,849 fans at the Amway Center on Saturday night.
The Solar Bears took an early lead, when F Zach Harrison deflected a shot from DZachary Yuen at 8:19 of the frame. It was the only goal of a hotly contested first period, as the Solar Bears took the advantage into the second period.
A quick start to the second stanza helped Orlando increase their advantage. A tic-tac-toe breakout led F Mike Ullrich into the zone and he centered a pass to D Cody Wild for a backhand one-timer that slid under the pad of Kristers Gudlevskis just 1:49 into the period. Orlando rang a shot off the post a few minutes later, but the period would end with the Solar Bears continuing to lead 2-0.
