Boka scores to give Solar Bears 1-0 OT win over Gladiators

DULUTH, Ga. – Luke Boka scored to break a 0-0 tie 39 seconds into the extra frame and Brad Barone made 32 saves for his first shutout of the season to lift the Orlando Solar Bears (7-5-1-0) to a 1-0 overtime victory over the Atlanta Gladiators (6-4-1-0) on Tuesday night at Gas South Arena.

After both teams played through 60 minutes without a goal, Boka netted the game-winner after Michael Brodzinski entered the attacking zone and flipped a drop-pass to Boka in the slot, who beat Atlanta goaltender Tyler Parks with a shot to the glove side.
