DULUTH, Ga. The Atlanta Gladiators (10-15-0-0) surrendered five unanswered goals to the visiting Orlando Solar Bears (14-9-1-1) in a 5-1 defeat on Saturday night, at Gas South Arena, in Duluth, Georgia.

The Glads found the back of the net first, with Cody Sylvester (6) driving to the goal and pushing the puck over the goal line. (6:21)
