After a scoreless first period in which Martin Ouellette made 15 saves for the Solar Bears, Orlando found its offensive stride in the second frame.

Hunter Fejes netted a shorthanded goal just 1:10 into the period to open the scoring for the Solar Bears. The forward pounced on a loose puck in the defensive zone and raced up ice before he backhanded an attempt underneath the blocker of Sean Bonar to give the visitors a 1-0 lead.

Zach Todd made it 2-0 for Orlando at 2:58 with his first of the season as he snapped a shot from the right circle that beat Bonar while Fejes cut across the goaltender’s field of vision.

Vincent Dunn extended the lead for the visitors to three goals at 10:16 with his second of the season.

After Stefan Fournier was assessed a five-minute boarding major at 13:49, the Gladiators capitalized with the man advantage, as Justin MacDonald buried a power-play goal at 16:44.

Fejes tallied his second of the game with a breakaway goal at 14:33.

Ouellette picked up the win with 37 saves on 38 shots against; Bonar received the loss with 20 stops on 24 shots against.
