The Wichita Thunder lost 4-1 to the Tulsa Oilers at the INTRUST Bank Arena on Saturday night. Tulsa scored three unanswered goals in the third to break a 1-1 tie and sweep the season-opening, home-and-home series from the Thunder. Gordon Bell scored on a long shot from just in front of the right point at 3:49 that deflected off Ian Keserich's chest and into the net to give Tulsa a 2-1 lead. Following a rush of Thunder offensive pressure, in which Trevor Cann made several key stops, Jack Combs scored on a breakaway at 7:49 to make it 3-1. Gary Steffes re-directed Jason Weeks' power play shot for a goal at 16:36 to put the game away.
