West Valley City, Utah – Joe Wegwerth scored the game winner 22 seconds into overtime as the Utah Grizzlies win 5-4 over the Orlando Solar Bears on Wednesday night at Maverik Center.

The Grizz got first period goals from Griffen Molino and Eric Williams to take an early 2-0 lead. Florida tied up the game late in the first with goals from Michael Huntebrinker and Blake Winiecki. Both players ended up with 2 goals on the night.

Winiecki’s 2nd of the game gave Florida a 3-2 midway thru the second period. Utah tied it up with 1:12 left in the second period as Felix Lauzon scored on a pass from Taylor Richart. Lauzon had 1 goal and 2 assists for his first multiple point game as a pro.
