  Thunder Suffers Second Regulation Loss to Allen, 3-2

Wichita, KS (Nov. 18th) - In front of 6,417 fans on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Night, Wichita fell for the second time this season at home to Allen by the final of 3-2 on Saturday night at INTRUST Bank Arena.

Dyson Stevenson and Jeremy Beaudry scored power play goals for the Thunder in the losing effort.

Allen hopped out to a two-goal lead as Vincent Arseneau and Miles Liberati scored six minutes apart. Stevenson got one back with four minutes to go in the first. He fired a shot from the right face-off dot that snuck just under the bar for his third of the season, which was on the man advantage.

Mathieu Aubin re-gained a two-goal cushion as he caught Wichita in a change and beat Shane Starrett at 1:06 of the second. Beaudry scored another power play goal for the Thunder at 13:16 that cut the lead back to one.

In the third, both teams had to kill late power play chances as Beaudry was sent off for hooking and David Makowski was whistled for the same infraction. Wichita had a six-on-four situation with five seconds left as Bryan Moore was called for a slash, but Allen cleared the puck off the face-off and the Americans held on for the win.

Wichita recorded its third game with two or more power play goals. Chad Butcher collected an assist in his Thunder debut. Beaudry added his second power play goal of the season. Starrett suffered his first regulation loss, stopping 31 of 34 shots. Stephon Williams grabbed his fifth win of the season, stopping 29 of 31 shots he faced.

Wichita went 2-for-4 on the power play. Allen was 0-for-2 on the man advantage.

The Thunder closes a three-game homestand tomorrow afternoon against Allen at 4:05 p.m.
