STOCKTON — The Bakersfield Condors (1-0-1) could not hold on to a third period lead and fell 4-3 in overtime to the Stockton Thunder (1-0-0) at Stockton Arena in preseason action on Friday night.
All of the Condors scoring came in the second period, including the first preseason tally from returning Condor Joel Broda.
Forward Mike Hellyer ripped a shot that knocked off the water bottle from the top of the left-wing circle to give the Condors a 2-1 lead.
Seconds later, Jake Morley tucked a low one-timer underneath goalie Brian Foster from the top of the crease to make it 3-1 before Stockton rallied.
