Texas Stars can’t keep up with Bakersfield Condors


Ryan Hamilton scored two goals in the final period to lead the Bakersfield Condors to a 6-3 win over the Texas Stars at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park on Friday night.

Both of Hamilton’s goals came on power plays in the third to put the game out of reach for Texas. The Condors led 3-2 entering the final period.

Texas (21-18-1-2) actually took an early lead on Bakersfield (16-16-4-1) as Travis Morin scored just over a minute into the game. He was assisted by Brendan Ranford and Ludwig Bystrom.

Griffin Reinhart tied the game over five and a half minutes later.

Matej Stransky scored his team-leading 16th goal with five minutes left in the first period on Bystrom’s second assist of the night. Morin also helped on the play.

Two goals in the final two minutes of the first period gave the Condors an advantage they never relinquished.

Patrick Russell scored before Joey LaLeggia gave the Condors the 3-2 lead.

After a scoreless middle period Hamilton notched his two goals not five minutes into the final period.

Reinhart added an empty net goal to seal the win.

The Stars pulled one back with just six seconds left to play when Caleb Herbert scored with the help of Branden Troock.

Texas was 0-for-6 on the power play while the Condors cashed in twice on five attempts.

Jonas Gustavsson got the win for Bakersfield, stopping 33 out of 36 shots. Landon Bow started the game for Texas but gave up three goals on 13 shots. Maxime Lagace was hit with the loss as he saved 14 of 16 shots and gave up the winning goal.

This past season, Tyrone Swoopes told reporters a story about when he lobbied for playing time at tight end.

Swoopes instead had two carries against...
