Solar Bears Home Win Streak Ends at Six
ORLANDO, Fla. - Joe Garreffa scored for the second straight game, but the Orlando Solar Bears (9-6-1-0) conceded two shorthanded goals to the Norfolk Admirals (8-6-0-1) en route to a 6-1 loss on Sunday afternoon at the AdventHealth Rink at Amway Center.
With the loss, Orlando's franchise-best run of six consecutive wins on home ice to start the season comes to an end (Oct. 23-Nov. 27).
