WENATCHEE — Wenatchee spent all of Saturday night battling from behind. Finally, in the third period and when time was running short, it summoned enough offense to tie the contest 3-3. But it couldn’t complete the comeback and dropped 4-3 against Fresno in a shootout.
The Wild (26-6-4 overall) outshot Fresno (12-19-5 overall) on Friday and Saturday, but it didn’t matter. The NAHL West-leading team left the weekend empty-handed and frustrated. It didn’t lead once the entire weekend.
