Shane Ferguson broke out of his slump to pump in a hat trick out of the midfield for the Pride, while Mike Delia and Harry Bernstein each found the back of the cage once.

Connor Nash earned the win between the pipes for the Pride, coming up with timely stops in the second half to keep the Owls at bay.

At the face-off "X", Mark Eaton and Branden Fernandez split time as the Florida heat took its toll on the players.
