NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (March 30)- The Texas Brahmas have made their fourth consecutive playoff appearance since their move to North Richland Hills, and begin their trek for a second CHL championship tomorrow night when they host the Odessa Jackalopes for a third straight year in the five game series Opening Round at 7 pm.

One name will not be joining the Brahmas in Game One against the Jacks, as Head Coach Dan Wildfong was assessed a suspension following events that took place last Saturday evening in a game against the Killer Bees in Hidalgo, Texas. Due to a CHL mandate, Wildfong will serve three additional games, having sat out one in the final regular season game.

"On behalf the Brahmas organization, we strongly disagree with the decision and have called for an immediate appeal hearing," said Brahmas Majority Owner Stuart Fraser. The appeal process will take place over the next two days with the Central Hockey League.

This season's Opening Round of the Ray Miron President's Cup playoffs schedule against the Odessa Jackalopes is:

Game 1 - Thu., Mar. 31 - Odessa at Texas, 7:00

Game 2 - Sat., Apr. 2 - Odessa at Texas, 7:30
