Solar Bears earn point in 3-2 OT loss to Icemen

ORLANDO, Fla. — Tristin Langan and Aaron Luchuk each scored to extend their point streaks to seven games, but the Orlando Solar Bears (12-10-3-0) only managed to pick up a point in the standings as the club fell to the Jacksonville Icemen (10–10-1-1) by a 3-2 score in overtime on Saturday night at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.

Luchuk’s snap shot from the right circle beat Kyle Keyser for a power-play goal at 12:51 of the first period to give Orlando a 1-0 lead.

The Icemen countered with two goals in a three-minute span in the second period, as Nick Saracino (6:50) and Brendan Warren (9:50) beat Michael Lackey to give the hosts a 2-1 edge.

Langan tied the score at 11:42 of the frame when he knocked in Michael Prapavessis’ rebound for his fifth of the season.

Lackey came up with a breakaway stop on Ara Nazarian midway through the third period to preserve the 2-2 tie. Pascal Aquin was later sent to the box at 17:26 on a double-minor call for high-sticking, but the Solar Bears were unable to capitalize in the remaining time left in regulation.

In overtime, Aquin saucered a pass over to Craig Martin, who snapped a shot past Lackey to win the game for Jacksonville.

Lackey went 24-for-27 on the night; Keyser got the decision for Jacksonville with a 21-for-23 performance.
