Missouri Topped 6-4 by Tulsa Mavericks Second Period Rally Not Enough to Outdo Oilers

April 3, 2015 - ECHL (ECHL) - Kansas City Mavericks News Release

TULSA, OK - The Missouri Mavericks were topped 6-4 in their first of two weekend road games against the Tulsa Oilers on Friday night at the BOK Center in Tulsa, OK. Missouri fought back from a 4-0 deficit after a dominant first period by the Oilers to put out a competitive performance against Tulsa despite falling short before the final horn.

The Oilers jumped on the board early only 1:46 into the game and backed that lead up 2-0 only thirty-four seconds later, Brady Ramsay (assisted by Kyle Bochek and Ricards Birzinsh) and T.J. Caig (assisted by Stephen Perfetto and Kevin Noble) notched the first two tallies in the Oilers opening period scoring run.

Adam Pleskach (assisted by Drew Fisher and Scott Macaulay) and Phil Brewer (assisted by Birzinsh and Bochek) gained another two points for the Oilers, giving the home team a 4-0 lead heading into the second period.

Missouri made their move in the second frame outshooting Tulsa 18-5. Brett Stovin scored his first professional goal only 1:40 into the period with an assist from Sebastien Thinel and Andrew Courtney. Courtney (assisted by Thinel and Colten Hayes) then lit up the crowd of Mavs fans in attendance at the BOK Center at 15:02 with the first of two back-to-back power-play goals for Missouri. Ludwig Karlsson took only forty-one seconds to bring the Mavs to a 4-3 scoreboard.

Macaulay answered back with another power-play goal for the Oilers early in the third period. Karlsson scored his second goal of the evening to keep the Mavericks in it, 5-4, but notched the final tally for Tulsa at 14:03 to seal an Oilers 6-4 victory.
