ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Solar Bears (2-3-0-1) used a four-goal explosion in the second period to roll to a 6-2 victory over the Jacksonville Icemen (1-2-2-0) on Tuesday night at the Jewett Orthopaedic Rink at Amway Center.
Jacksonville’s Chase Lang opened the scoring in the first period after Maxime Fortier brought the puck around the Orlando net and fed Lang in the slot for a tap-in goal at 12:40.
The Solar Bears turned things around in the second period, as Jimmy Huntington buried the equalizer for his first pro goal just 20 seconds into the middle frame.
Jake Jackson gave Orlando the lead at 1:27 when Kevin Lohan’s shot from the blue line struck Brent Pedersen and bounced to Jackson, who hammered the puck past goaltender Griffen Outhouse, who had already committed to Lohan’s drive. The goal was also Jackson’s first pro goal.
The Solar Bears made it 3-1 at 4:33 when Pedersen pressured a Jacksonville defenseman in the corner, resulting in the puck rolling to an open Jake Marchment in the slot, who fired home his first of the season.
Ivan Kosorenkov netted his team-leading third of the season at 19:58 when he chased down a bank-pass from Taylor Doherty and teamed up with Marchment for a 2-on-1 before he wristed a shot past Outhouse.
The Icemen got one back in the third period when Alexis D’Aoust redirected a point shot from Hayden Shaw past Spencer Martin at 1:06.
Alexey Lipanov then netted two power-play goals for Orlando, one-timing a Mike Monfredo pass at 6:47, and knocking in a pass from Monfredo that also glanced off the stick of Colby McAuley at 11:28.
Spencer Martin earned his second win of the season with 35 saves on 37 shots against; Outhouse took the loss with 27 stops on 33 shots against.
