The Thunder ended their weekend series with Lewis with a 6-2 defeat. Wheaton got off to a slow start, giving up 4 goals in the first period. Wheaton then settled down and were able to play the next two periods to a 1-1 draw each. Unfortunately, the sloppy first period proved to ultimately be too much for them to overcome. Wheaton now heads into Christmas break, and the half way point of the season, with a record of 1 win and 7 losses. The Thunder will go into a six week break for the holidays, and will be back in action next at home against conference rival Western Illinois University, at Center Ice of DuPage on January 15th, at 8:40 PM.
