Amarillo rolls over Lone Star, 7-0
Story by Narrative Science.
The Amarillo Bulls had a three-goal lead after two periods and cruised the rest of the way en route to a 7-0 win over the Lone Star Brahmas.
Amarillo got the win thanks to a great game by Matt Sieckhaus, who had two goals and two assists. Sieckhaus scored the first of his two goals at 7:40 into the second period to make the score 3-0 Amarillo. Brendan McGuire provided the assist. Sieckhaus' next tally made the score 6-0 Amarillo with 5:10 left in the third period. A cross checking penalty on RJ Salvato had put the Bulls on the power play. Kyle Gattelaro assisted on the tally.
Lone Star's power play was ineffective against Amarillo's penalty kill, which allowed zero goals while shorthanded.
The Bulls put up an impenetrable defensive front on the penalty kill, and did not allow the Brahmas to score on any of their six power plays. Amarillo's goal total was higher than its season average. The Bulls have scored at the pace of 3.7 goals per game during the current campaign. The defensemen of Amarillo were also effective in Lone Star's zone, and came away with two goals. The Bulls' penalty killing units received substantial work throughout the game as Amarillo finished with 32 penalty minutes. The 36 shots that the Bulls put on net surpassed Amarillo's average of 28.8 shots per game this season.
Amarillo also got points from Mitchell McPherson, who also registered one goal and one assist and Joe Grabowski, who also had one goal and two assists. Amarillo also got a goal from Brendan Vetter as well. In addition, Amarillo received assists from Brett Szajner and Cody Gylling, who each chipped in one and Connor Frey and Roman Ammirato, who contributed two a piece.
The Brahmas did not reach the goal total they have come to expect this season. Lone Star puts an average of 2.2 pucks into the net per game. The Brahmas struggled to stay out of the sin bin throughout the game as they finished the game with 32 penalty minutes for six opposing power plays.
Lone Star was led by Kellen Wasell, who took three shots.
The Bulls' Paul Berrafato stopped 16 shots out of the 16 that he faced. The Brahmas took out Jacob Nehama after he had made 19 saves and installed Shane Joyce in goal, where he finished with 10 saves and the loss.
