CONDORSTOWN, Calif. – The Bakersfield Condors dropped a pair of games to Colorado last weekend, earning a point in a come-from-behind shootout loss Saturday. But the team’s biggest loss came on the personnel front, where the Condors have lost each of their top four scorers since Friday – three to injury and another to recall.
Bakersfield is currently 13-31-2-3 with 31 points in the standings. They trail the 8th place San Francisco Bulls by nine points in the standings, with a pair of key meetings against the Bulls this weekend.

After a dominant first period that saw the Condors take a 2-0 lead, the Wranglers rallied for found unanswered goals to double up Bakersfield. F Peter Boyd scored for the sixth straight game, and F Brett Perlini also tickled the twine for the Condors. It was the first time all the season Condors had lost in regulation when leading after two periods.
Colorado 3 vs. CONDORS 1
Bakersfield drew first blood but couldn’t stem the Eagles offensiveonslaught in a 3-1 setback Friday night. G Scott Greenham (pictured) did all he could, stopping 51 shots in a losing effort, while F Nicholas Tremblay scored the only goal for Bakersfield.
Trailing 2-0 heading into the third period, F Nicholas Tremblay went to work. He put the Condors on the board at 7:13 of the third, and with the goaltender pulled for the extra attacker, he tied it up with 57 seconds remaining in regulation. Only one player could light the lamp for Bakersfield in the shootout, as Colorado earned the extra point in the skills competition.
