Bugs fall 3-2 in Lubbock
LUBBOCK, TX -- The Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs played their first game against Lubbock on the road Thursday night. Joe Ori picked up his first Mudbugs goal and first North American pro goal when he scored in the first period.
The Bugs were unable to hold the lead in the second period as Lubbock's Jimmy Callahan slipped rebound past Ken Carroll to even the game.
The scoring opened up in the third period with Jimmy Callahan picking up his second goal of the game to give Lubbock a one goal lead. The Mudbugs would storm back as Jason Basile tied the game on wrist shot right off the face off. Moments later Ross McCain got along side the Mudbugs net, he took a feed and slipped it by Ken Carroll for the game winning goal.
The Mudbugs return home for weekend games against Austin and Oklahoma City on Friday and Saturday night at CenturyTel Center.
