Beauregard sparks K’s to shootout win

Thomas Beauregard made the Kometsí return to Orlando a happy one.

Beauregard had two goals and also scored the only goal in the shootout to help the Komets to a 5-4 victory over the Solar Bears on Friday at Amway Center.

It was the teamís first game in Orlando since 1998 in the old IHL. And Fort Wayne (10-8-1) had to rally to win for just the third time in nine games.

Beauregard gave the Komets a 1-0 lead with a goal at 6:32 of the first period. Brandon Marino scored at 5:55 of the second to extend Fort Wayneís lead to 2-0.

The Solar Bears (9-10-4) scored the next four goals.

Nick Petersen scored the first two to tie the game. His second came at 14:17 of the second period.

Ryan Ginand gave Orlando a 3-2 lead with a goal at 4:09 of the third period. Ryan Cruthers scored at 10:00 to make it 4-2.

But the Komets fought back. Ryan Hegarty scored at 10:57 to cut the deficit to one. Beauregard then tied the game, scoring at 19:53.

The game eventually went to a shootout, and Beauregard was the only player to score.

Kenny Reiter made 40 saves for Fort Wayne.

Fort Wayneís Lincoln Kaleigh Schrock missed the game as he served his one-game suspension for instigating a fight in the final minutes of a 3-1 loss at Gwinnett, Ga., on Nov. 30.

The Komets face Orlando again today. Itís the second of three games in three days in Orlando.
