Solar Bears win streak stopped by Cooley, 'Blades in 4-1 loss

ESTERO, Fla. — A late third-period goal from Matthew Spencer was not enough to spark a rally from a 3-0 deficit as the Orlando Solar Bears (9-7-1-0) saw their three-game win streak snapped in a 4-1 loss to the Florida Everblades (13-5-0-1) on Saturday night at Hertz Arena.

VIEW BOX SCORE

Hugo Roy scored on a delayed penalty to put Orlando in a 1-0 hole at 4:12 of the second period, and Luke Nogard (8:36) and John McCarron (19:15) added goals in the frame to extend Florida’s lead to three.

Spencer spoiled Devin Cooley’s shutout bid with his first of the season at 18:22 with Michael Lackey pulled for an extra skater, but Joe Pendenza sealed the game in the final seconds of regulation with an empty-net tally.

Lackey went 26-for-29 in the loss, while Cooley earned the win for Florida with a 30-for-31 performance.

  • Aaron Luchuk led Orlando with five shots on goal and assisted on Spencer’s tally
  • Kevin Lohan played in his 100th game with the Solar Bears, becoming the eighth blueliner in team history to reach the century mark for games
