Coughler’s first hat trick lifts Solar Bears to 4-1 win

ORLANDO, Fla. — Jake Coughler scored three goals for his team’s first hat trick of the season and Jerry D’Amigo enjoyed a three-point day as the Orlando Solar Bears (13-10-3-0) capped the week with a 4-1 win over the Jacksonville Icemen (10-11-1-1) by a 4-1 score on Sunday afternoon at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.

D’Amigo opened the scoring for Orlando at 14:03 of the first period when Zack Andrusiak intercepted a pass in the Jacksonville zone and fed D’Amigo in the slot, who fired his fourth of the season past Kyle Keyser.

In the second period, Coughler and Tristin Langan teamed up for a give-and-go that Coughler finished at 12:49 for his 11th of the season.

Pascal Aquin got Jacksonville on the board at 3:51 of the third period, but Coughler responded with a power-play goal from the left circle at 7:20, and added another power-play tally with an empty net at 18:28 after the Icemen had pulled Keyser with Wacey Rabbit in the box.

Clint Windsor picked up his fifth win of the season for Orlando with a 28-for-29 afternoon; Keyser took the loss with a 17-for-20 effort.
