Bulls Host IceRays Saturday And Sunday


AMARILLO, TX – For the first time in three weeks, the Amarillo Bulls will host a pair of games this weekend at the Budweiser Bull Pen in the Amarillo Civic Center. The Bulls, which have not lost in regulation at home, host the Corpus Christi IceRays tomorrow (Saturday) night at 7 pm and Sunday afternoon at 4 pm.

There are two excellent promotions on tap to welcome the Bulls back to home ice. Saturday is the Return of Rowdy, and there are still some $5 silver end zone tickets and $7 Red level tickets available which can be purchased at the Bulls Office only. Sunday’s game is sponsored by Buzzula Furniture, and one lucky fan can win a recliner valued at over $500. Any fan who wears a sports jersey to the game will also receive a free ticket.

On the ice, the Bulls have won six in a row and seven of their last eight games heading into this weekend’s action. The Bulls are tied for first place in the South Division with the Topeka RoadRunners at 36 points. Amarillo is placed higher due to less losses and a high winning percentage. That percentage is the tops in the North American Hockey League and has them back to first place overall.

It’s Corpus Christi’s first visit to the Texas Panhandle this season. The two clubs have already met twice in South Texas with the Bulls taking three of four points falling 3-2 in overtime but taking the second 9-3.

Several players have big point streaks, too. Carter Penzien has five goals in his last five games, while Tyler Deresky has four goals in his last four games. Meantime, forward TJ Sarcona has eight assists in his last five contests.

IceRays’ forward Emil Romig has 12 points in his last seven games, while the team has 6-2-2 mark in their last 10.
