The Brahmas outshot the Mudbugs 8-5 in the first period, but the game remained scoreless.The first score of the contest came off the stick of Ture Linden scoring his fourth goal of the weekend. The score remained 1-0 Lone Star until the 19:57 mark of the third. With the Mudbugs’ net empty, Kyle Hallbauer picked off an entry pass just inside the Brahmas’ blueline and sent it up to Aidan Spellacy in neutral ice. Spellacy sidestepped a defender as he moved up ice then fired it in from the near circle. Mitchell Gibson made 15 saves for the shutout, while Jaxon Castor made 21 saves in the los. The shutout was the eighth of the season for Gibson with five of those coming against the NAHL South Division leading Mudbugs. Boxscore
