LAST WEEK (Home team in CAPS):
IDAHO 6 vs. Condors 3

The Condors had a dubious start to their trip to Idaho, surrendering four of the final five goals in the game and falling 6-3. When F Tyler Brenner scored with just over four minutes left in the second, it tied the game up for the Condors at 2-2. But the Steelheads regained the lead a few minutes later and added three goals in the third for the win.
