Following a scoreless first period in which Ryan Massa made a brilliant toe save on a wraparound attempt by David Pacan late in the frame, the Beast opened up a 1-0 lead at 4:31 of the middle stanza when Brandon Marino knocked in a Pacan feed past Massa.

Chris Crane tied it up for the Solar Bears when Taylor Doherty unloaded a shot from the right point which Mason Marchment deflected with his stick off the leg of Crane at 7:34.

Joe Perry pulled Orlando ahead with his team-leading 10th goal of the season at 16:27 when he teamed up with Brett Findlay on a give-and-go and beat Bryan Pitton stick side.

David Vallorani netted the equalizer less than a minute later after he made his way into the attacking zone and roofed a puck over the glove of Massa from the high slot at 17:25.

Cameranesi scored the eventual game-winner when Eric Baier teed up a shot from the right point that was picked up behind the net by Eric Faille, who fed a pass into the slot for the rookie to hammer into the cage at 9:50 of the third.

Austin Block gave Orlando some breathing room when he collected a failed breakaway shot from beneath the goal line and banked it in off of Pitton at 15:34, and Doherty tallied his first goal of the season on a late power play at 18:37.

Ryan Massa earned the victory with 31 saves on 33 shots against to gain his 26th career win with Orlando, tying Garret Sparks for the franchise mark; Pitton took the loss with 32 stops on 37 shots against.
