Amarillo Bulls 6 @ Corpus Christi IceRays 1 – Tyler Gernhofer picked up a hat trick and Eric Purcell added two assists in his return to Corpus Christi as the Amarillo Bulls defeated the IceRays 6-1 on Sunday afternoon inside the American Bank Center. Mike Davis scored first for the Bulls on the power play. The IceRays responded with a power-play goal of their own at 12:28 of the opening period as Wes Michaud scored. The Bulls went up 2-1 as with almost no time left on the clock, Matt Sieckhaus centered a puck through the top of the crease right to an awaiting Tyler Gernhofer who one-timed it by Forbes Ploszaj to end the first period. In the second period, Tyler Gernhofer, Brady Ferguson, and Kyle Gattelaro all tallied goals to move the lead out to 5-1 after 40 minutes of play. The only scoring in the final period of regulation was the hat trick goal by Tyler Gernhofer on a breakaway.

Janesville Jets 1 @ Port Huron Fighting Falcons 3 – Alex Blankenburg made 21 saves to help the Fighting Falcons to a 3-1 win on Sunday completing a weekend sweep of the Janesville Jets. Things look good for the Jets early as Tyler Rehm opened the scoring for Janesville midway through the 1st period. However, Port Huron seized momentum late in the 2nd period as it took just a span of :29 seconds for the home side to take the lead on goals from Zach Badalamenti and Bryan Yim. Vito Aluia added a 3rd period goal to secure the win for Port Huron, which was their 4th straight. Brock Kautz made 29 saves in the loss. Boxscore

Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees 4 @ Odessa Jackalopes 1 – Nick Schmit made 22 saves to help the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees clinch the South’s third playoff spot thanks to a 4-1 win in Odessa on Sunday. Anthony Croston was the other big hero for the Killer Bees with a goal and two assists in the win. It took just over three minutes for Odessa to get on the board first on a goal from Lukas Laub. However, it was all Bees after that as Mason Van Tuyl tied the game with his first career NAHL goal. Croston then added the eventual game-winner 10 minutes later to put Rio Grande Valley ahead 2-1. In the 3rd period, Ben Greiner and Dan Kucerovy added insurance goals to secure the win. Boxscore
