Texas Defeated In Third Period
NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (April 5)- A three goal period in the third by Odessa slammed the door on Texas' chances at Game Three in the Opening Round as they fell 4-3 Tuesday night.
Two minutes into the second, Jacks blueliner and former Brahma Kevin Seibel notched a goal for an Odessa lead, only to have the Brahmas come back strong with back to back goals from Calin Wild and Jason Deitsch. Deitsch's goal came from the powerplay.
A resurgent final period doomed Texas as Odessa went on to score three goals for the win. Chad Woollard planted a puck to the back of the net for the Brahmas third tally of the night, but it wouldn't be enough in the five game series.
Game Four is slated for Thursday in Odessa with Texas in a do-or-die situation. The game can be viewed online on CHL-TV. Should the Brahmas win, a deciding Game Five will be played Saturday at the NYTEX Sports Centre in North Richland Hills for a 7:30 pm faceoff.
