Three thrillers on Thursday in the NAHL

January 31, 2013

Tyler Marble had 33 saves to help Soo edge Jamestown to take over sole possession of 1st place in the North Division.

Wichita Falls 6 @ Odessa 2 - In the first game of a three-game weekend series, the Odessa Jackalopes were defeated for the fourth time in their past five head-to-head meetings by the Wichita Falls Wildcats Thursday at Ector County Coliseum in Odessa. Odessa started the scoring at 5:12 of the opening period when Jackalopes defenseman Matt Montemurro crept in from the left point and tapped his third goal of the season past Wildcat netminder Evan Cowley. The response from Wichita Falls was swift, as Matt Robinson netted the first of his two goals on the night less than two minutes later to tie the game at one.  In the second period, goals from Ben Kucera and Tyler Ledford stretched the Wildcats lead to 3-1 before Steven Haydon scored his first goal since September 13th, a one-time strike at 8:09 of the second, to draw the Jacks within a goal at 3-2. In the third period, Wichita Falls pulled away as Robinson’s second goal of the night led to a Colin Staub tally and Ledford’s second marker of the contest pushed the game out of reach for Odessa at 6-2 Wildcats.  Boxscore
