Brahmas drill Oilers 6-2

November 22, 2008 - Central Hockey League (CHL) - Fort Worth Brahmas News Release

NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas - In his first game at the NYTEX Sports Centre forward Jason Deitsch proved to feel at home as he led the Brahmas in their 6-4 victory over Tulsa Saturday evening.

It was a trifecta of a first period for Texas as they were able to score three goals on Odessa's starting goaltender Guy St. Vincent. Deitsch put the Brahmas on the board first with a trickling puck for his second goal of the season from Grant Jacobsen and Scott Sheppard.

Jacobsen continued his scoring streak when he was able to find the back of the net at the 3:04 mark. An assist was rewarded to Deitsch. Minutes later Marc Belanger put Texas up 3-0 with a slapshot past St. Vincent. Brahmas goaltender Brett Jaeger was solid stopping all seven shots in the period.

The second period was all about the counterattack for Tulsa as they scored two unanswered goals on Jaeger, the first a powerplay goal. Texas captain Craig Minard was unsatisfied with the one goal differential, and on the powerplay was able to give the Brahmas the 4-2 cushion. Sheppard and Deitsch set up the goal, Minard's third of the season.

Frustration began to boil over for the Oilers in the third when Texas scored two more goals. The first came from Kevin McLeod with a feed from Mike Vellinga and Tyler Skworchinski. Deitsch gave the home crowd a show with his second goal of the night at the 6:12 mark in the final period. Both goals were on the powerplay, causing the Brahmas to go 3 for 8 with the man advantage.

Texas went on to win 6-2 improving their winning streak to five games. Up next for the Brahmas is a 5:15 PM game in Oklahoma City tomorrow for their third game in as many nights. Fans can view the game through Nifty TV.
