The Arizona Sundogs jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the first period and the Wichita Thunder spent the rest of the game playing an unsuccessful game of catch-up in a 5-4 loss on Friday in Prescott Valley, Ariz.

The Sundogs led 3-0 just 10 minutes into the game behind goals from Ian Schultz, Brandon Coccimiglio and Bryan Cameron before Wichita answered with a score from RG Flath late in the first period.

A goal from Wichita’s Jesse Dudas less than one minute into the second period cut Arizona’s lead to 3-2, but Arizona answered with back-to-back goals for a 5-2 lead.
