TOPEKA, KS – After a week of preparation, it’s time to hit the ice for the Amarillo Bulls and the Topeka RoadRunners in the opening game of the Robertson Cup NAHL South Division Final on Friday at 7 pm at the Kansas Expo Center-Landon Arena. The second game is set for Saturday also at 7 o’clock.
The Bulls advanced to the second round with a four game win over the Texas Tornado, including the series clincher 2-1 in overtime. The RoadRunners needed all five games to excuse the pesky Wichita Falls Wildcats. It took a goal in the final minute of the fifth game to snap a 3-3 that sent Topeka on its way.
During the regular season, the Bulls were able to win three times and take a total of seven points in Topeka. Five of the six games at the Kansas Expo Center were decided by one goal, while another the outcome was a difference of two goals.
Fans can tune into both games live on ESPN1440 and www.amarillobulls.com, beginning with Prelude To The Playoffs Presented By Wayland Baptist University at 6:45 pm. Denis J. Puska has the play-by-play at 7 pm. The games are also available on Pay-Per-View courtesy of Fast Hockey and a high speed internet connection is required in order to view the game.
The series will then shift back to Amarillo for the third game next Thursday, April 21 at 7 pm at the Bull Pen in the Amarillo Civic Center. If a fourth game is necessary, it will be played on Friday, April 22 also at 7 pm.
