W. VALLEY CITY, UT (Feb. 14) - Wichita closed a three-game series in Utah with a 6-1 loss on Sunday afternoon against the Grizzlies at the Maverik Center.

In the second, the Grizzlies scored twice in 1:45 to take a 3-1 lead. Matthew Boucher scored at 16 minutes as he redirected a pass from Braylen Shmyr into the net for their first lead of the weekend. At 17:45, Shmyr found a loose puck underneath the legs of Weninger during a scramble and scored to make it 3-1.

The Grizzlies pulled away in the third, connecting three more times. Cedric Pare found the net at 10:07 to make it 4-1. Boucher tallied his second of the game at 10:50 as he banked it off of Weninger's back to make it 5-1. Jared Pike scored at 15:14 on the power play that made it 6-1.

Wichita has scored first in eight-straight games. Beauregard has points in eight-straight contests. Dickman added an assist, giving him points in three of his last four.
