Storybook Weekend Finale for Stockton Thunder

The Stockton Thunder Goes Pink Weekend ended with a bang! So what happened?

Thunder defenseman Jordan Bendfeld was charged with an illegal hit to the head penalty halfway through the first period and was out the rest of the game.

Thunder's designated Pest of the Night from the Condors, Erick Lizon, was at his best (or is it worst?) tonight. The only photos I was able to take tonight were of Thunder fan Scott Sturdivant doing a great impersonation of Lizon.

Two powerplay goals were scored by Steve Vanoosten and Ryan Constant in the second period.

In the third period, after letting a puck hit by Aaron Clarke from the blue line float slowly by his left pad into the net, Condors goalie Josh Tordjman took advantage of a skirmish happening in Thunder's defensive zone and skated out of the crease and down the ice. He confronted Thunder's starting goalie Tyson Sexsmith, and KAPOW, goalie fight! Tordjman got a good hit in, but Sexsmith was clearly the victor of that confrontation. Both goalies were ejected from the game and got penalties for leaving the crease, fighting, and a game misconduct/secondary altercation.

Both backup goalies, Bryan Pitton for the Thunder and Peter Hirsch for the Condors had to step in with a little under 5 minutes left in the game. Anthony Aiello scored the fourth and final goal of the game for Stockton shortly after that.

Stockton Thunder swept the Bakersfield Condors in their 3 game Thunder Goes Pink series.

Tyson Sexsmith got his first shut-out of the season. Both he and Bryan Pitton shut out the Condors this weekend-Pitton's shut-out was on Friday.

And lastly but importantly, $500 a goal was pledged in order to donate money to St. Joseph's Medical Center. A total of $2,000 was raised from the scoring.

Couldn't have asked for a more exciting game to end the weekend with.

Third star of the night-Ryan Constant. Second star-Steve Vanoosten. First star of the night-Tyson Sexsmith.
