Yellow Horn's Streak Hits 14 In Allen's Loss At Texas
NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas- The first place Allen Americans fell to the Texas Brahmas 4-1 tonight in front of 2,458 at the Nytex Sports Centre in North Richland Hills, TX. Despite the loss, the Americans still hold a 15 point lead in the race for the Berry Conference crown over the second place Brahmas.
Brahmas forward Chad Woollard scored the lone goal of the first period 6:48 into the frame after breaking into the zone and firing a wrister past Chris Whitley. Whitley finished the opening frame with 11 saves while Brahmas netminder Wayne Savage stopped 10.
The Americans came out firing to start the second period and would knot the score at 1 at the 13:39 mark when Jonathon Zion deflected Colton Yellow Horn's feed past Savage. The goal was Zion's fifth of the season.
Calin Wild's tally with 2:55 remaining in the middle frame restored the Brahmas lead and gave Texas a 2-1 advantage through forty minutes of play.
The third period saw the Brahmas extend their lead to 3-1 with 3:39 remaining when Mick Lawrence's shot found it's way into the back of the net.
With Chris Whitley pulled in favor of the extra attacker, Brahmas captain Jason Deitsch ended any hopes of an Americans comeback with an empty-net goal with 2:42 remaining in regulation.
Whitley finished the night with 26 saves on 29 shots and is now 18-8-1 on the season.
Colton Yellow Horn extended his point streak to 14 games with the primary assist on Zion's second period goal. Yellow Horn has registered 20 points (10g, 10a) during the streak.
Allen falls to 39-13-2 with the loss but continues to lead the Central Hockey League with 80 points.
