The Bulls stopped the Texas Tornado in four games to advance to the next round, while it took Topeka five games to dispose of the Wichita Falls Wildcats.
Amarillo collected five wins in seven games against the RoadRunners during the regular season, including three wins and a shootout loss in Topeka at the Kansas Expo Center.
