AMARILLO, TX – The Amarillo Bulls hope the month of October is a better one for them as they start a six game homestand at the Budweiser Bull Pen in the Amarillo Civic Center. Home cooking just might be the tonic the team is looking for after two one-goal losses to the Topeka RoadRunners 2-1 and 3-2 over the weekend.
The two games series actually was delayed by one day as a Zamboni breakdown forced the postponement of Friday’s game and caused teams to play on Saturday and Sunday.
The home stand begins with a rare single game this Friday as the Bulls host the Wichita Falls Wildcats at 7 pm.
