Bulls look for better effort in New Mexico

RIO RANCHO, NMX — The Amarillo Bulls hope 24 hours makes all the difference in their game tonight (Saturday) when they take on the New Mexico Mustangs at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, New Mexico at 8:30 pm central, 7:30 pm mountain.

The Mustangs continue to give the Bulls difficulty especially in New Mexico this season with two wins in four games, including a 5-2 victory on Friday night. The loss dropped the Bulls to second place in the NAHL’s South Division following Topeka’s 6-3 win in Corpus Christi. Even though the RoadRunners are one point ahead in the standings, the Bulls still have several games in hand and own the NAHL’s best winning percentage.

One of the areas the Bulls will have to do a better job at tonight is getting off to a fast start. In the season series in New Mexico, the Bulls have surrendered the first goal in three of the four games.
