Bakersfield ends game on scoring streak to top Texas Stars


The Bakersfield Condors scored three third-period goals to come away with a 4-2 win over the Texas Stars in an American Hockey League contest at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park on Saturday night.

The Stars (19-14-3-1) led 2-0 until late in the second period when the Condors (14-13-6-0) began a four-goal streak to end the game.

Ty Rattie made it 2-1 with just 21 seconds left to play in the middle frame. His goal came on a power play and was assisted by Joey LaLeggia and Grayson Downing.

Brad Malone tied the game nearly six minutes into the third period on a short-handed goal.

Joe Gambardella scored the eventual game winner just over two minutes later.

Iiro Pakarinen finished off the scoring with an empty-net goal with less than a minute to play in regulation.

Nick Ellis earned the win for the Condors, saving 38 of the 40 shots he faced.
