After two fights in the opening 62 seconds of the first period, Colorado jumped on the board early and raced out to a 3-0 lead after one, never looking back en route to a 6-3 victory. LW Jesse Gimblett and LW Hans Benson each dropped the mitts to begin the game for Bakersfield. RW Tyler Helfrich and LW Kyle Calder each scored goals which cut the Colorado lead to two on separate occasions, but it was not enough. D Tyson Gimblett also scored for the Condors.
