Stars fall to IceHogs in series finale


The Texas Stars took an early lead, but the Rockford IceHogs scored three straight goals to win 3-1 in Rockford, Ill. on Friday night.

Caleb Herbert scored on a penalty shot in the first period, but it’s all the offense the Stars could create as they dropped the series finale to Rockford. It was the first penalty-shot goal for the Stars this season.

Brandon Mashinter scored on a power play to tie the game, assisted by Ville Pokka and Erik Gustafsson, early in the second period. It was the first goal the IceHogs scored on a power play in 19 attempts.

Matheson Iacopelli scored what turned out to be the game-winner nearly midway into the final period. The goal came in Iacopelli’s professional debut for Rockford and was assisted by Michael Latta and Evan Mosey.

Jake Dowell added another goal for Rockford with less than a minute remaining on a shorthanded, empty-net goal.

Justin Peters had a solid outing in net, but it wasn’t enough as he made 33 saves on 35 shots.

Lars Johansson made 29 saves on 30 shots as he took the win for the IceHogs.

Rockford had 36 shots in the game to the Stars’ 30. The IceHogs went 1 for 4 on the power play while Texas was 0 for 1.

Texas next takes on Milwaukee on Saturday at 6 p.m. on the road.

A snake tale: Close brush with rattler offers chance to disprove myths

Bobby Parker is no fan of rattlesnakes — make no mistake about that. He’d rather crawl into bed with a rabid raccoon than take on a rattler on his Camp Verde Ranch. And since turkey season is the time for seeing rattlesnakes in Texas and Camp Verde Ranch is one place the snakes seem to like, Parker is always on the lookout for rattlers...

Leggett: Mexico’s Comedero as good today as yesteryear for bass fishing

Tall, jagged like a speed freak’s teeth and reaching close to 5,000 feet above sea level, peaks of the Sierra Madre mountain range circle the waters of Lake Comedero, for now keeping cool air trapped down close to the water. Even during the hot part of the midday, it’s still comfortable fishing out here, which some members of our group...
