Condors Weekly: Utah comes to town this weekend

ONDORSTOWN - The Bakersfield Condors had their two-game weekend series against Las Vegas come to an early end by having Saturday’s game postponed. It left the Condors four points behind the Wranglers in the standings, after a 3-1 loss Friday night in Vegas. Bakersfield holds a 5-13-0-1 record, with 11 points in the standings.

The Condors host the Utah Grizzlies on Friday and Saturday (and trail the 7th place Grizzlies by six points) and then head to Stockton on Sunday to cap off the week.

Last Week: Setback in Vegas
The Condors scored less than two minutes into the game in Las Vegas on Friday, but could get nothing else past G Travis Fullerton,and an empty net goal by the Wranglers sealed a 3-1 win.

 

On Saturday in the return game of the home-and-home, Bakersfield had the first game postponement in team history, as winter weather closed all routes into the Central Valley and prevented the Wranglers from arriving for the match. A makeup date for the game will be announced in the near future.
