Boyd scores lone goal for Solar Bears in 2-1 loss to Stingrays

ORLANDO, Fla. – Rich Boyd scored the lone goal for the Orlando Solar Bears (21-20-5-1) as the team dropped its second consecutive match to South Carolina Stingrays (34-9-3-1) by a final score of 2-1 on Friday night the Jewett Orthopaedic Rink at Amway Center.

Box Score

The Stingrays scored twice in the second period as Brendan Troock beat Mike Condon high to the glove side at 5:23, and Cameron Askew snuck behind a defender on the power play to tuck one past Condon at 6:24.

Boyd got Orlando on the board with his sixth of the season when he blasted a shot from the left point past Parker Milner at 4:39 to cut South Carolina’s lead in half.

Tyler Bird had an opportunity to tie the score on a breakaway with just over four minutes remaining in regulation, but as he shifted to his backhand, Milner poked the puck away.

The Solar Bears pulled Condon for an extra skater with approximately two and a half minutes left in regulation, but were unable to come up with the tying score.

Condon took the loss for Orlando by making 26 saves on 27 shots against; Thompson picked up the win for South Carolina going 34-for-34.

  1. Branden Troock – SC
  2. Parker Milner – SC
