Amarillo 2 @ Odessa 5 - The Odessa Jackalopes scored two shorthanded goals 29 seconds apart to fuel a comeback and beat the Bulls 5-2. It was a tale of two games between the two teams as the Bulls had the momentum and a 2-0 advantage in the first 29 minutes of play, thanks to markers from George Mika and Steven Ipri. But after that it was Odessa that rallied with three goals in a span of five minutes and then potted two more goals in the third period. After the early Bulls goals, the Jackalopes were able to gain traction thanks to a penalty kill that rewarded them with two goals 29 seconds apart. First Zac Heintz scored on a pass from Zach Zech and then Cooper Zech pushed home a puck at the side of the net when the Bulls couldn’t track down the rebound. The Jackalopes grabbed the lead at the 14:14 mark when the Bulls failed to clear the puck out of their own end. Tyler Pietrowski scored when he converted a rebound in front. The Jackalopes rounded out the scoring with two more goals. The first was by Zach Zech who tallied on a 2 on 1 break and the second was by Ludwig Steinlund who scored on a one timer on the power play. Jonny Hogue made 33 saves in the win, while Brandon Bussi made 36 saves in the loss. Boxscore

Lone Star 4 @ Corpus Christi 3 (SO) – Hunter Stanley scored in regulation and was the only shooter in a 10-man shootout to find the back of the net as he led the Brahmas to a 4-3 shootout win in Corpus Christi on Thursday night.

The IceRays got goals from Cole Filler in the 1st period, Nathan Bryer in the 2nd period and Cole Gammer in the 3rd period, while the Brahmas got goals from David Marabella in the 1st period, Stanley in the 2nd period and Andy Willis in the 3rd period.
