Brahmas lose third straight against the Americans

NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (November 5)- A two game winning streak was snapped for Texas Friday night as they fell 4-2 to their cross-town rivals, Allen Americans.

Chad Woollard has made the Allen Events Center his home away from home, proven when he helped give Texas an early lead in the first period, beating Chris Whitley between the pipes.

American forward Jarret Lukin evened the game when he took the puck top shelf on Wayne Savage at the 8:38 mark.

In the end of the period Matt Pierce took a costly tripping penalty where Allen was able to convert with the man advantage with ten ticks remaining on the power play.

After a scoreless second period, the home team came out ready beginning with Lukin’s second goal of the contest. Thirty-seven seconds later the Americans were able to strike again against an unsettled Savage to take the 4-1 lead.

Brahmas rookie Tyler Allen cut the deficit in half, but it wasn’t enough as the Brahmas came short 4-2.

Texas returns to the NYTEX Sports Centre tomorrow night to face the Arizona Sundogs for a 7:30 pm face off.
