Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees 3 @ Odessa Jackalopes 5 – The resurgent Jackalopes used three, 2nd period goals to pick up another key win in a 5-3 home victory over the Killer Bees in front of over 3,000 fans in Odessa. After the team’s traded goals in the 1st period with Mathieu Briand scoring for the Jacks and Evan Schmidbauer scoring for the Bees, the Jackalopes scored three goals in the 2nd period, two from Alex Alger and one from Leo Lumm.

Boxscore

Amarillo Bulls 4 @ Topeka RoadRunners 1 – Colin Delia made 30 saves as the Bulls scored early and often to defeat the RoadRunners 4-1 in Topeka. The win moved Amarillo’s record to 5-0 this season so far against the RoadRunners. It took less than five minutes for Amarillo to jump out to a 2-0 lead on goals from Tyler Gernhofer and Brett Szajner. James Rink would answer back on the power play to make it 2-1, but two more goals from the Bulls’ Roman Ammirato and Brady Ferguson would be all that Delia and the Bulls would need the rest of the way. Boxscore

Coulee Region Chill 1 @ Janesville Jets 5 – After a 1st period goal from the Chill, it was all Jets the rest of the way as Evan Feno scored twice in a 5-1 win in Janesville. Logan Halladay played well again in goal, making 27 saves. After James McGing gave the Chill an early 1-0 lead in the 1st period, the Jets would answer four times in the 2nd period on goals from Grant Stueve, Jordan Himley and two from Feno. Carson Vance would add a 3rd period goal to make the final 5-1. Boxscore

Corpus Christi IceRays 2 @ Wichita Falls Wildcats 5 – The Wildcats opened with a 2-0 lead and never looked back as they moved into sole possession of 2nd place in the South Division with a 5-2 win at home over Corpus Christi. Kirk Van Arkel and Jake Townsend scored to put the Wildcats up 2-0. After a Nick Monfils goal, Ben Kuchera made it 3-1. Corpus Christi cut the lead to 3-2 early in the 3rd period with a goal from Martin Hojbjerg, but that would be as close as the IceRays would get as Colin Staub added two 3rd period goals to put the game out of the reach. Boxscore

Fairbanks Ice Dogs 6 @ Kenai River Brown Bears 5 (OT) – Fairbanks bombarded Kenai River with 53 shots, but it took overtime for the Ice Dogs to post their seventh straight win as they edged Kenai River, 6-5.
