Amarillo Visits Wichita Falls Tonight


Amarillo, TX – The Amarillo Bulls embark on their first South Division road trip of the young season when they visit the Wichita Falls Wildcats for a pair of games this weekend. The two teams will meet for the first time tonight (Friday) and again tomorrow night (Saturday) at 7:15 pm at Kay Yeager Coliseum.

The Bulls and the Wildcats met for a pair of pre-season games back in early September where each team collected one win.

Amarillo is coming off a 5-1 win over the Odessa Jackalopes in its home opener last Saturday night, while Wichita Falls also played just one game, falling to the Texas Tornado 4-1. The Bulls and the Wildcats are tied for third place in the South Division standings with three wins and seven points each.

It is a contrasting start to season for both teams when it comes to building momentum in games. After a slow start in the first period, the Bulls have out-scored their opponents 14-6. The Wildcats have outscored their opponents 8-3 in the first but after that the tables have turned. Wichita Falls has been outpointed 18-8 in the final 40 minutes.

The Bulls were 6-1-1 versus Wichita Falls last year, but one of those loses was at Kay Yeager Coliseum where the Wildcats were 14-14-2 overall. Amarillo has been a solid team away from home posting 24 wins in 2011-2012.

Fans can tune into the action live on ESPN1440 and, beginning with The Warm Up Show at 6:55 pm with Denis J. Puska. The puck drop is set for 7:15 pm. The game is also available on Pay Per View courtesy of Fast Hockey and a high speed internet connection is required in order to view the game.
