THIRD-PERIOD COMEBACK FUELS BRAHMAS’ VICTORY
CALIN WILD SCORES GAME-WINNER LATE IN THIRD PERIOD

 
NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (March 25) – The Brahmas met the IceMen in the regular-season finale Sunday afternoon, scoring three goals in the third period to win 4-3 in regulation.
 
Brendon Hodge had the lone Brahmas’ goal through two period of play, as Texas trailed Evansville 2-1 at the second intermission. T.J. Fox got the scoring started in the third period at the 1:59 mark to even the score at two goals apiece. After Matt Pierce gave the IceMen the lead once again, Brock Meadows fired a slapshot by Evansville goaltender Pier-Olivier Pelletier to knot the teams up at three.
 
With 6:33 to play in regulation, Mike Hellyer – the newest member of the Brahmas – fed Calin Wild in front of the net, and Wild buried the puck past Pelletier to give Texas its first lead of the game at 4-3. For Wild, it was his eighth goal and first game-winner of the season.
 
Mark Guggenberger stopped 27 of 30 shots fired on net by the IceMen to improve to 22-11-3 on the season. Pelletier made 21 saves on 25 Texas shots, and will end the season with a 14-14-2 record.
 
The Brahmas finish the regular season at 33-25-8, good for third in the Berry Conference. Texas will meet the Allen Americans in the opening round of the postseason, set to begin Friday, March 30 in Allen. Games three and four of the series will be played at the NYTEX Sports Centre on Wednesday, April 4 at 7:00pm and Friday, April 6 at 7:30pm.
