Just 1:28 into the game the Bulls broke the ice, with C Justin Bowers finishing a 2-on-1 for the first tally of the night. Bakersfield continued to pressure the Bulls and connected on a power play with just over six minutes remaining in the frame. LW Jacob Lagace buried his sixth of the season into a wide open net on a feed from F Zach Cohen.
San Francisco controlled the play in the middle stanza, holding a 11-6 shot advantage in the period, and regaining the lead. C Dean Oullet put home a power play marker with just over four minutes remaining in the second to make it 2-1.
In the opening minutes of the third the Condors were on the power play, but a fallen defender at the blueline led to an odd-man rush for the Bulls, and LW Kris Belan converted for a 3-1 lead. A power play goal at 7:46 gave the visitors a three-goal cushion, and the final margin.

Team USA Olympic Beach Volleyball silver medalists April Ross and Jen Kessy were in attendance tonight. They held a Q&A with the fans and hung out in the Condors Photo Booth throughout the night. Even played volleyball on the ice during the first intermission against a group of girls from Club Jamba, a local club volleyball team that earned a chance to hit the ice against them. They served up signed volleyballs for the fans as well.
