North Richland Hills, Tx(11-13-20)– The Amarillo drop the weekend opener to the Lone Star Brahmas by a final score of 4-2 and fall to a 1-3-0-1 record early in the season.


The scoring started early in the game when Harrison Scott scored his first goal of the season just 2:40 into the game. Three minutes after the ice breaker, Nick Dineen tallied his first goal on the power play to give Amarillo a 2-0 lead within the first six minutes of the game.


A few moments after Dineen gave the Bulls a 2-0 lead, Brahmas center Andrew DeCarlo cut the lead in half. The Brahmas would strike again in the first with a Ryan Drkulec goal which would end the first period with a 2-2 score.


The second period began as a defensive struggle and a tied score but 7:00 minutes into the second period, the Bulls would take two penalties and have to kill off a 5-3 man advantage. Shortly into the two man advantage, Joey Baez scored his first goal of the season giving Lone Star their first lead of the night.


The remainder of the game, neither team could sustain long periods of offensive pressure and the 3-2 score would stay well into the third period. In the final minutes of the game, Bulls goalie Cal Sandquist would be pulled for the extra attacker.


Nick Niemo iced the game with the empty net goal in the final minute of the game. The Brahmas would close out Friday’s contest with a 4-2 win. The weekend series will wrap up tomorrow night at 7:30
