Late rally for Solar Bears falls short in 3-2 loss to Everblades

ORLANDO, Fla. —  After spotting their opponents a 3-0 lead, the Orlando Solar Bears (31-23-5-1) made a furious charge for a rally with two goals in the final five minutes of regulation, but Orlando ultimately fell by a 3-2 decision to the Florida Everblades (37-18-2-2) on Saturday night at the AdventHealth Rink at Amway Center for a split of their weekend series.

Both goals were scored with goaltender Clint Windsor pulled for an extra man, as Anthony Repaci and Aaron Luchuk scored for the second consecutive night for the Solar Bears.
