    CEDAR RAPIDS Mired in a season-long losing streak, the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders buckled under an avalanche of shot attempts.

    Dubuque utilized a 17-5 shots-on-goal advantage in the third period to score tying and winning goals and hand Cedar Rapids its fifth straight loss, 4-3, before 1,882 fans last night at The Stable.
