IceRays Fall to Wichita Falls 3-0

Mar 5, 2022

After a thrilling win on Friday night, the Rays were looking to break out the brooms on Saturday.

In the first period, Wichita Falls was able to strike first just over four minutes into the game at even strength.  They extended their lead to 2-0 before the end of the period with a shorthanded goal.

The second period had the score stay the same, but the game got chippy in the middle frame with 38 penalty minutes assessed in the period.

Wichita Falls extended their lead to three in the third period, and once again, held the Rays scoreless.  The Warriors goaltender, Brandon Millberg, picked up shutout number four on the season bouncing back after allowing three goals on four shots on Friday night with his team earning the 3-0 win.

With the loss, the Rays slide into seventh place in the south division and sit five points outside of a playoff spot with ten games to go.  Corpus Christi is off this weekend, which marks the final off-weekend of the regular season.

Following the weekend off, the Rays hit the road for back-to-back weekends to Lone Star and Wichita Falls.  The four game road trip starts a stretch of eight of the last ten on the road for Corpus Christi.
