Phantoms drop game one of the Eastern Finals of the Clark Cup.
The Phantoms trailed 3-0 in the third period. John Padulo scored on the power play midway through the period. Then, Sam Anas scored a minute later to pull Youngstown to within a goal, but that would be as close as they would get as they fall 3-2.
Game two in Dubuque is Saturday at 8:05 p.m.
