Gulls Handed First Loss by Bakersfield

The Gulls played a chippy match last night versus rival Bakersfield, however; the fighting, tripping, checking, and penalties played a role in the Gulls 3-0 loss to Bakersfield, their first loss of the season. (4-1-0-0)

Matt Hackett (goalie) made his first start for the Gulls, and starter John Gibson was given a rest from the road trip fatigue. Hackett recorded 18 saves on just 21 shots. The Gulls recorded more shots (24), but Bakersfield goalie Laurent Brossoit was having none of it, recording the shutout.

Fatigue played a huge role in fueling the rival matchup, as the Gulls had a long bus ride from San Jose to Bakersfield the night before, not arriving at accommodations until 1:30 am.

Penalties: A whole lotta misconduct!

Bakersfield had 9 power play chances (only capitalized on one, so kill unit is still strong), 85 total penalty minutes allowed for Condors, 141 total penalty minutes. With all of this, only 45 shots for the two teams combined. Here is a list of all penalties, take note that at one point in the 3rd, the hockey match appeared more like wrestlemania, with all 10 skaters sent to the box at once.

Hi, I'm Cameron. Love to watch all sports and supply input, so I figured, why not write for an award winning blog and get my thoughts/analysis out there? Season ticket holder and booster club president of the Gull, will be writing/covering Gulls Hockey action, as it's the highest level of hockey San Diego is likely to ever see! I'm a friendly guy, so if you've got something to say or ask, feel free to do so! More than happy to supply any information I know in hopes to build a greater fan base for the Gulls.
