TEXAS DROPS SECOND STRAIGHT IN ALLEN
THREE UNANSWERED GOALS LIFT AMERICANS
 
ALLEN, Texas (March 17) – The Brahmas led 2-0 midway through the second period Saturday night, but three unanswered goals lifted the Americans to the 3-2 victory.
 
The Brahmas grabbed an early 1-0 lead just 50 seconds after a Jason Deitch hooking penalty when T.J. Fox put back his own rebound at the 13:32 mark of the first period. The score was Fox’s 16th goal of the season and his ninth point in the last five games.
 
Texas extended its lead to 2-0 at the 6:55 mark of the second period behind an Erik Spady slapshot from the point that beat Allen netminder Rejean Beauchemin. Spady’s fifth goal of the season was also the Brahmas’ second powerplay goal of the night.
 
Erik Adams put the Americans on the board and cut the deficit in half when he beat Brahmas’ goaltender Ken Carroll on a breakaway at the 14:37 mark.
 
Just over six minutes into the third period, Bruce Graham beat Carroll along the left side to even the score at two goals apiece. Three minutes later, the Americans capitalized on a Brahmas turnover in their own zone, as Brett Clouthier found the back of net to give Allen its first lead of the game at the 9:06 mark of the third period. The Brahmas pulled the goalie with 1:08 remaining in regulation but were unable to score the equalizer.
 
Carroll made 31 saves on 34 Allen shots in his first start since the end of the 2009-10 season. Beauchemin stopped 20 of 22 shots, picking up his 17th win of the season.
 
The Brahmas and Americans will do it again Sunday at 4:00pm at the NYTEX Sports Centre.
