NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (March 6) – Friday night marked the start of a two game series between the Lone Star Brahmas and Corpus Christi Icerays at the NYTEX Sports Centre. Lone Star entered the contest two points behind the NAHL South Division leading Topeka Roadrunners who were on the road in Amarillo. The Brahmas knew that if they took care of business at home and got a little help from the Bulls that first place in the division was within their grasp.
Lone Star got out front early in the first while skating with the man advantage due to a Corpus Christi bench minor. On the play Caleb Thompson fired a slap shot from the far point and Sebastian Vidmar grabbed the rebound just off the right post and immediately moved it to Ludvig Larsson at the near hashmark for a one timer past the glove hand of Andrew Lindgren at 2:50.The rest of the period played out with no further scoring. The scoreless play carried through the second as well and the Brahmas took a 1 – 0 lead into the second intermission.
