After not seeing each other in Oct. and Nov., the Reign and Condors will see plenty of each other the rest of the way. Side by side in the Pacific Division standings, Ontario and Bakersfield will meet 15 times this season, including four times in December (with a two-game series in Ontario next weekend). The Condors are 13-10-3 against Ontario all-time, which includes one meeting in the organization’s previous incarnation as the Texas Wildcatters in 2004-05. The Condors took the only meeting of the season thus far, 5-4 last Wednesday, a game that saw five different players light the lamp for Bakersfield.
