Killer Bees Weekly
The Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees (19-24-5) return to the State Farm Arena after a successful three game road trip. During the road swing the Bees earned five of six possible points including victories over Wichita and first-place Allen. The Bees fell to the Texas Brahmas in overtime earning a point.
Zak McClellan helped to pace the Bees for the weekend scoring a goal in all three games while his linemates Aaron Lee and Bo Cheesman also added a scoring touch. Lee racked up five points while Cheesman added four points during the trip.
The Bees most impressive victory of the road trip came Sunday afternoon as the Bees dealt the Allen Americans only their ninth loss of the season. The Bees opened up a four-goal lead in the second period and Juliano Pagliero and the defensive corps would turn away all Allen advances but a lone power-play strike.
The Bees are set to open a five-game homestand with Allen, Laredo, and Bossier-Shreveport all set to take the State Farm Arena ice.
