Sunday, January 21 at South Carolina: 4-2 L
The Solar Bears eight game, road unbeaten streak was ended on Sunday in a 4-2 defeat at the hands of the South Carolina Stingrays. Orlando trailed 2-0 in the second period, but on a late goal from Brayden Low and a shorthanded goal from Tyler Bird 14 seconds into the third period, the Solar Bears had brought the game to level. Ivan Lodnia broke the tie and Kameron Keily added insurance to give the Stingrays the decision.


BITES: 

  • Tyler Bird scored this Solar Bears second shorthanded goal of the season Sunday afternoon in South Carolina. The goal was Bird's fifth in a Solar Bear uniform tying him for third all-time with Eric Baier (2013-18) and Brady Vail (2014-16)
