T.J. Fox Delivering Big for the Brahmas

Fifth year forward takes starring role in Texas' post-season offense

From the Central Hockey League website:

Scoring big goals is becoming the norm for Texas Brahmas forward T.J. Fox who has spurned his team’s comeback in their best-of-seven series with the Allen Americans that now sees the Brahmas leading two games to one.

In Game 2, the Oswego, New York native broke a three-all tie with less than three minutes to play with his first goal of the series. The Brahmas won the game in Allen, 4-3, and tied their series at a win apiece.

For an encore, Fox delivered two huge goals on Wednesday night as his team rebounded from a 2-0 deficit to beat the Americans, 5-4. The first for Fox was a shorthanded breakaway goal in the second period that gave Texas their first lead of the night at 3-2. The second was once again the game winner as Fox delivered a snapper from the right circle beating Allen’s Marco Cousineau in the third period to make the score 5-4, the ultimate final.

During the regular season, Fox scored 19 goals and had 55 points in 63 games played and was a very reliable player with a +21 plus/minus rating.

In the post-season, he leads the Brahmas with his three goals and leads all the post-season clubs with two game winning goals.

Texas looks to build on their one-game lead in the series on Friday night when they host the Americans in Game 4.
