Cherniwchan, Herbert Score in 2nd During 3-2 Loss
By: Stingrays Media
ORLANDO, Fla. – A third period breakaway goal by Michael Joly broke a tie halfway through the third period and gave the Orlando Solar Bears (29-21-4-1) a 3-2 decision Monday night, narrowly avoiding a sweep by the South Carolina Stingrays (23-19-9-3) in the teams’ three-game series this week at the Amway Center.
Orlando secured the initial advantage when Aaron Luchuk netted the opening goal of the game at 18:43 of the first period.
South Carolina responded in the second when Cherniwchan knocked a puck past goaltender Clint Windsor from the slot to tie the game at 1-1 after linemate Justin Florek moved it to him from the right wall. The goal, which came at 6:17 of the middle frame, had a second assist credited to defender Connor Moore.
The Solar Bears got back on top 2-1 when Anthony Repaci beat Jurusik on a play in front of the crease at 13:49 of the second.
Before the end of the frame, Caleb Herbert stuck with a bouncing puck at the side of the Orlando net and forced it past Windsor to even things again at 2-2. Herbert’s eighth tally of the season came at 18:09 from forward Matthew Weis as well as Cherniwchan.
But the Solar Bears had the only tally of the third at 11:04 when Joly got past SC’s defense and beat Jurusik on the breakaway to the glove side.
The Stingrays were unable to find a late equalizer and failed to extend their fourth three-game winning streak of the 2020-21 season.
Neither team was able to strike on the man-advantage during the contest, with Orlando finishing at 0-for-3 while SC ended at 0-for-4. Windsor picked up the victory for the Solar Bears in the crease, stopping 24 Stingrays shots. Orlando held the edge in shots-on-goal for the game, 32-26.
The Stingrays continue their road trip on Wednesday in Estero, Florida for the first of three battles against the Florida Everblades this week at 7:30 p.m.
