Blades Suffer Third Loss of the Season

ORLANDO, Fla. - The Orlando Solar Bears (3-6-1-0) scored three goals in the first period and held on to defeat the Florida Everblades (8-3-0-0) 4-3 on Friday night at the Amway Center in Orlando. 

BOX SCORE

Orlando forward Ryan Lohin put the Solar Bears on top early with a tip in (6:01). A few minutes later, Orlando extended its lead with a short-range shot from Aaron Luchuk (11:56). Then, Peter Abbandonato (15:55) redirected a shot to close out the first period and give the Solar Bears a 3-0 lead. 

The Everblades made up some ground in the second period. Alex Kile gathered the puck off of a rebound then laid it off to Lukas Craggs to finish the play (3:08). At the 5:04 mark, Cameron Hebig scored an unassisted no-look snipe, which extended his point streak to six games. 

Abbandonato slowed down the Blades momentum by sneaking the puck past Everblades goaltender Devin Cooley to extend the score to 4-2 (11:25). 

Early in the third period, Michael Huntebrinker broke loose to score a shorthanded goal to cut the Solar Bears’ lead to 4-3 (1:39). The Everblades had multiple chances and outshot the Solar Bears 11-7 in the third period, but were unable to get the equalizer. 

The next home game for the Everblades comes next Wednesday, Jan. 13 against the Jacksonville Icemen at Hertz Arena. You can find tickets for the Jan. 13 game against JacksonvilleHERE.
