Solar Bears' win streak snapped in 4-1 defeat to Nailers

ORLANDO, Fla. – Hunter Fejes scored a power-play goal, but Jared Cockrell tallied a hat trick for the visiting team, as the Orlando Solar Bears (18-13-1-0) saw their five-game win streak snapped in a 4-1 loss to the Wheeling Nailers (16-14-1-0) on Saturday night at the AdventHealth Rink at Amway Center.

Fejes scored Orlando’s lone goal late in the first period after Orlando had fallen into a 2-0 hole, knocking in an Odeen Tufto rebound past Stefanos Lekkas.

Cockrell added a power-play goal for Wheeling in the second and capped the scoring with an empty-netter in the third.

Brad Barone took the loss with 24 saves, seeing his four-game win streak snapped.
