Brahmas hockey - a full contact sport
The boys from North Richland Hills defeat the Allen Americans in a 3-2 shootout
Texas Brahmas fans were reminded how much they missed the action at the NYTEX Sports Centre after watching the newest members of the team tale out the Allen Americans in a 3-2 pre-season shootout last night.
Pardon me if I'm overstating this, but in my opinion the excitement level in the stands approached playoff levels as the cross-town rivalry continued between players on both teams looking to earn a spot on the final rosters, to be determined next week. If there was anyone in the building who hadn't experienced our hometown hockey before, they'll certainly be back for more. OK, enough soap boxing.
Hey, speaking of boxing - did we see a few fights last night? That would be a yes...Roger Maxwell, Tyler Allen, Troy Schwab and Jason Beeman each dropped the gloves for the purple and black and left some black and blue on the Americans' Ryan McGill, Iain McPhee, Justin DaCosta, Dustin Donaghy and Todd Orlando.
I'll have more on the game later - I'm spending time with my wife and girls today!
