Solar Bears end week with 6-3 win over Stingrays

NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Orlando Solar Bears (5-4-1-0) closed out a busy week with their largest offensive performance of the season with a 6-3 victory over the South Carolina Stingrays (5-3-0-0) on Sunday afternoon at the North Charleston Coliseum.

After falling behind 1-0 in the first period, Aaron Luchuk and Steenn Pasichnuk scored to give Orlando a 2-1 edge before Carter Cowlthorp scored to tie the score at 2-2 for South Carolina.

Canon Pieper put Orlando ahead in the second period with his first of two on the day when he banked a shot in behind Ryan Bednard from the right circle, and the Solar Bears never relinquished the lead.

A late second period penalty to the Stingrays carried over into the third stanza, and Tyler Bird scored the eventual game-winner just 12 seconds into the frame a moment after the infraction to Jordan Subban expired.

Pieper added his second of the afternoon, and Michael Brodzinski sealed the game with an empty-netter to complete a three-point afternoon for the defenseman.
