Thunder goalie David Brown stopped four of the five shots he faced in the shootout, and Matt Robinson and Matt Summers scored shootout goals to give the Thunder a 3-2 victory over Quad City on Friday night in Moline, Ill.

The Thunder scored a goal in each of the first two periods to take a 2-0 lead. RG Flath’s power-play goal at 4:34 of the first put Wichita on top. Dustin Donaghy scored midway through the second period.

Wichita’s victory snapped a three-game losing streak.

The Thunder has a week before its next game, at home next Friday night against Quad City.
