The Condors registered the lone goal of the second period as C Peter Boyd wrist shot slipped through Nailers G Scott Darling on the power play at 10:34 to cut the lead to 2-1. RW Francis Verreault and D Trevor Hendrikx had the assists. Wheeling outshot the Condors 13-10.
F Christiaan Minella added a needed insurance goal at the 10:26 mark of the third period on an odd-man rush to extend the lead to 3-1. It was needed, because the Condors cut the lead to 3-2 when C Nicholas Tremblay snuck one through Darling with just under four minutes remaining in the frame. Bakersfield pulled Greenham with 1:30 left in regulation, but could not equalize and fell 3-2.
