ESTERO, Fla. - The Florida Everblades (13-5-0-1) toppled the Orlando Solar Bears (9-7-1-0) by a score of 4-1 on Saturday night at Hertz Arena.

In his second game of the season, Roy put the Blades up 1-0 in the second period when he carried the puck through a cluster of Solar Bears on a delayed penalty and ripped twine past Michael Lackey’s glove (4:12).

Nogard lengthened the Everblades lead later in the second period with a turnaround snapshot past Lackey (8:36). 

Late in the second, Blades forward Levko Koper dished to John McCarron on a two-on-one in the Orlando zone. McCarron picked the top right corner for his ninth goal of the year and stretched the Florida lead to 3-0 (19:15).
