ORLANDO, Fla. -

The Orlando Solar Bears facing elimination for the third time in as many games fell just short of forcing a game 7 against the Cincinnati Cyclones Tuesday at the Amway Arena in front of a loud and boisterous crowd of over 5,000.

The Solar Bears jumped out to an early 1-0 lead but were unable to hold the advantage in front of its home crowd as the Cyclones knew that if they did not edge a win out Tuesday, all bets are off come game 7.

The Cyclones netted one goal in the second period, and another in the third to defeat the Bears, ending their season and their dream of hoisting the Kelly Cup this year.
