OILERS EARLY SURGE HOLDS AGAINST BRAHMAS
FORT WORTH FALLS TO TULSA 4-2


 
TULSA, Oklahoma (October 28) - The Fort Worth Brahmas lost their first game in regulation Sunday afternoon, as the Tulsa Oilers jumped out to an early lead and held on late to seal a 4-2 victory.
 
After a scoreless first period, Tulsa scored three unanswered goals in the second period to take an early advantage. Ben Gordon, Ryan Menei and Michel Beausoleil notched the scores.
 
At the 11:38 mark of the second period, Cody Hamilton scored a powerplay goal to bring the Brahmas within two scores heading into the third period. For Hamilton, it was his first goal of the season.
 
Brendon Hodge cut the deficit in half at the 12:42 mark of the third period when he scored his second goal in as many nights, making the score 3-2 in favor of the Oilers.
 
The late surge was not enough for Fort Worth however, as Tulsa notched an empty-net goal with 18 seconds remaining in regulation to take a 4-2 lead and seal the victory.
 
Larry Sterling made 27 saves on 30 shots fired by the Oilers to fall to 0-1-1 on the season. Ian Keserich, who had success against the Brahmas a season ago, stopped 30 of 32 shots he faced to improve to 2-1-0 in 2012-2013.
 
Fort Worth continues its road trip in Arizona when it faces off against the Sundogs on Wednesday, October 31.
 
The Brahmas are back at the NYTEX Sports Centre Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10 at 7:30pm when they will get a chance at revenge against the Oilers.
 
In an effort to reward fans for their patience this off-season, the Brahmas have reduced individual ticket prices, as well as lowering the price of full-season, half-season and 11-game ticket packages for the 2012-2013 season.
