LOVELAND, Colo -- The offensive woes continued for the Condors on Friday night as they fell 2-1 to Colorado for their fifth straight loss.
The Condors have scored just seven goals in those losses.
As has been the case for most of the season, the Condors (7-19-1-2) had trouble generating shots with just 18 on the game.
Bakersfield goaltender Scott Greenham faced 37 shots, making 35 saves, many of them highlight reel worthy.
Evan Trupp had the lone goal for the Condors.
What would have been a game-tying goal by David Towes five minutes into the third period was immediately waived off by the referee although the goal light went on. There was no replay of the play in the arena to see if the puck crossed the goal line or not.
Colorado scored on its first shot of the game, though the goal wasn't even a shot.
The puck deflected off the skate of Dylan Hood and past Greenham 2:37 into the game as the Eagles jumped out to a 1-0 lead.
The Eagles extended the lead to 2-0 five minutes into the second when a shot bounced off the end boards and onto the stick of Teegan Moore, who had a mostly open net to put the puck in for a power-play goal.
Bakersfield cut the lead in half on a power play at 9:25 when Trupp rifled a a shot into the top of the net off a coss-ice feed from Levi Nelson. Defenseman Deron Cousens, who played in his first game for the Condors on Wednesday, also assisted on the play.
