Texas Stars end season series against Stockton with a loss


Matej Stransky scored his 23rd goal of the season, but it wasn’t enough as the Texas Stars closed out the season series against the Stockton Heat with a 4-1 loss at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park.

Hunter Shinkaruk led the Heat with a goal and two assists in the Heat’s second win out of three straight games against the Stars (30-32-1-4).

Jon Gillies earned the win for Stockton (29-25-4-2) as he stopped 22 out of 23 shots on the night. The rookie has allowed seven goals in five games against the Stars.

Shinkaruk’s goal came at 4:06 into the middle frame to give the Heat its first lead.

Stansky scored the lone Texas goal of the night near the end of the second period to tie that game at 1-1. He was assisted by Travis Morin and Denis Gurianov on the play. The goal extended Stansky’s point streak to five games.

After Stransky tied the game, Linden Vey put the Heat up for good with a goal at 19:59 into the middle period, assisted by Shinkaruk.

Morgan Klimchuk doubled the Stockton lead when he scored on a power play early in the third period. Shinkaruk and Garnet Hathaway assisted on the play.

Mark Jankowski closed out the scoring as he cashed in on an empty net opportunity with three minutes left in regulation.

Justin Peters was hit with the loss as he allowed three goals on 25 shots.

The Stars will next face the Rockford Icehogs on Friday at 7 p.m. on the road.

I’ve spent more than 30 years writing about hunting and fishing in Austin, and there’s something that’s bugged me throughout that time.

When Spencer Dunkerley-Offor glanced at the Myers Stadium scoreboard after his 110-meter hurdles race Friday at the NCAA West regional track and field championships, he saw a time of 12.6 seconds by his name.
