Barracuda fall in shootout to Bakersfield

By: Eric He

The San Jose Barracuda were unable to extend their win streak to three, as they fell 2-1 in a shootout to Bakersfield on the road on Wednesday morning.

It was a special start for school day, and the home team sent the kids home happy.

In the shootout, Ryan Hamilton scored the lone goal as Condors goaltender Laurent Brossoit stopped all three shootout chances for the Barracuda.

Down 1-0 in the third period, the Barracuda evened the score on a deflection by Bryan Lerg at 6:38 and the teams headed to overtime tied 1-1. Despite an exciting overtime session that saw an unsuccessful breakaway by Barclay Goodrow, the Barracuda were unable to find the back of the net.

Bakersfield struck first midway through the first period on a wraparound goal by Marc-Olivier Roy. The game remained 1-0 into the third in a low-scoring affair.

In the midst of a seven-game road trip, the Barracuda will head to Stockton to take on the Heat on Saturday.
