ONTARIO–The Barracuda (19-11-1-3) allowed four goals in the third period and went o-for-5 on the power play in a frustrating 7-2 loss to the Reign (20-9-6-0) in Ontario on Saturday night.

San Jose trailed just 3-2 heading into the third period, but Mantas Armalis allowed four past him in the third to erase any hopes of a Barracuda comeback. Teddy Purcell, Vincent LoVerde, Johnny Brodzinski and Mike Amadio all scored for the Reign to put the game out of reach.

The game was close through two periods. The Barracuda’s Marcus Sorensen tied the game 2-2 in the second period on a redirect, but Brodzinski gave Ontario the lead right back minutes later on a power play.

Ontario also led 2-0 in this game. Sam Herr and Paul LaDue lit the lamp in the first period to stake out an early lead for the Reign. John McCarthy provided the lone goal for the Barracuda in the first period to close the deficit to 2-1.

By game’s end, though, the score would be much different as Armalis allowed seven goals on 33 shots.

The Barracuda’s next game will be Wednesday night in Stockton.
