Condors stumble in 4-1 loss against Vegas

CONDORSTOWN, Calif. – C Eric Lampe scored twice to lead the Las Vegas Wranglers (24-19-2-3, 53pts) to a 4-1 victory over the Bakersfield Condors (14-33-2-3, 33pts) Friday night at Rabobank Arena.
Goals came quick in the opening period, with three tallies in the first six and a half minutes. The Wranglers drew first blood just 1:12 into the game, with Lampe’s first of the night, beating G Brian Stewart for the 1-0 lead. LW Jacob Lagace tied it up for Bakersfield just over a minute later, getting his 12th of the season. But the Wranglers added two more before the period ended, including Lampe’s second of the game, to make it 3-1 after one.

Vegas scored the only goal of the middle frame, with LW Adam Huxley blasting home his third of the season at 4:56. Bakersfield couldn’t cut into the lead in the period, despite an 11-6 shot lead.

Neither team lit the lamp in the third period, and G Joe Fallon made the lead stick. The Condors out-shot the Wranglers 25-14 over the final two periods, but the early damage had already been done, and Las Vegas held on for the win.
