Reign 2, Bakersfield 1, end 2nd period.

Reign forward Geoff Walker scored on a wraparound goal with 1:18 left in the period, giving him two points (on top of his earlier assist) in his first pro game. He’s looking like a smart waiver-wire pickup for Karl Taylor. Also looks like the Reign’s power play (which has produced both goals so far) is going to be OK.

The Reign seemed to have the edge in time of possession, but it wasn’t a pretty period overall. The players finished more checks than passes and there’s not much else to report.
