Solar Bears drop first meeting with Admirals, 3-1

NORFOLK, Va. – Michael Brodzinski scored the lone goal for the Orlando Solar Bears (2-2-0-0) during a 4-on-3 man advantage in the first period to tie the game at 1-1, but Orlando suffered a 3-1 defeat to the Norfolk Admirals (4-2-0-0) on Thursday night at the Norfolk Scope.

Brodzinski’s first of the season came after Samuel Thibault was whistled for roughing at 14:39, with Steenn Pasichnuk and Chris Ordoobodi already in the box for both clubs. Brodzinski one-timed an Aaron Luchuk feed past Norfolk’s Beck Warm to even the score, but Ordoobodi scored the eventual game-winner midway through the second period and Chase Lang added an early insurance marker in the third period to seal the game.
