BULLS FALL TO LONESTAR IN SHOOTOUT IN SECOND GAME OF SEASON
Amarillo, TX (Nov. 1, 2020) – The Amarillo Bulls were proud to host and honor local veterans and
their families for today’s matchup against the Lone Star Brahmas.
The festivities included a hometown hero dropping the puck, shoutouts for those veterans and
families in attendance, and a heartfelt video tribute to our local heroes.
Cal Sandquist made his first start of the season for the Bulls as Amarillo looked to split the
weekend series with Lone Star. The Brahmas got on the board early with a Mitchell Digby power
play goal just 58 seconds into the game. After the quick start for Lone Star, the Bulls picked up
their offensive play throwing 11 shots on goal but the Lone Star goalie Burke stopped all 11.
Nicholas Niemo scored his second goal of the weekend series early in the second to open up a
two goal Brahmas advantage. Moments later, Harrison Scott would set up defenseman Casey
Roepke for his first goal of the season to make the score two to one. The score would stay into
the third period.
With eight minutes gone in the third, Cooper Fensterstock would show off his speed with a
breakaway goal on Burke to tie the game at two in the third period. Amarillo would pepper more
shots on Burke the remainder of the third but the stalemate would result in overtime and at least a
point for both teams.
In the overtime frame, both Burke and Sandquist made outstanding saves to push the game to a
shootout. The first four rounds of the shootout saw no goals but in the Brahmas turn of the fifth
attempt, Stefan Miklakos would score and Burke made the game clinching save on Fensterstock
to give Lone Star their third win on the season.
Scott picked up the lone assist for the Bulls this afternoon. Roepke and Fensterstock both scored
their first goal of the 2020-21 season. Sandquist made 19 saves on his 21 shots faced and saved
four of the five shootout attempts faced.
