Stars fall for sixth game in a row

Josh Currie had a hat trick and Nick Ellis didn’t allow a goal as the Bakersfield Condors defeated the Texas Stars 5-0 in Bakersfield, Calif. on Tuesday night.

Ellis made 28 saves and the Condors killed two penalties to shut out the Stars (24-26-1-2), handing them their sixth straight loss and second shutout loss of the season.

Currie scored his first goal on a power play in the second period, assisted by Griffin Reinhart and Patrick Russell. His last two goals came in the third period to put the game away.

The Condors’ first three goals came on power plays. They converted three out of their four opportunities with the extra-man advantage.

Joey LaLeggia scored first for Bakersfield, converting on the power play with the help of Anton Lander and Taylor Beck.

Russell notched two points in the game as he scored 8:05 into the final period to give Bakersfield (23-20-5-1) a 3-0 lead.

Currie scored his second goal at the midway point of the final period to make it 4-0 before he added another with less than two minutes left to play.

Justin Peters took the loss for the Stars as he allowed five goals on 32 shots.

Texas has one more chance to take a win on their current six-game road trip. They take on San Jose on Wednesday at 9 p.m.
