All Good Things Must End
The streak gets cut off at three games, as Wheaton falls to Lewis university by a score of 6-3.
The Flyers jumped off to a quick start, taking a 1-0 lead three and a half minutes into the game. The Thunder would tie the game with 1:46 left in the period off of a finish by Luke Grogger on a tic-tac-toe passing play.
Things fell of the rails in the second period, for the Thunder, however, as Lewis would score four goals in the period, shutting out Wheaton on the other end of the ice.
Blake Eitreim and Brant Goodrich would both tally goals for the home team in the third frame, but the comeback attempt would fall short, and an early goal in the period for the Flyers would round off the final score at 6-3.
With this loss, Wheaton’s hopes to jump up to the third seed for the playoffs were dashed. The Thunder will be in action next week in Peoria for game one of the playoffs.
