Texas Stars fall in San Diego for fourth straight loss


The San Diego Gulls scored on three power play opportunties to help lift them to a 6-2 win over the Texas Stars in San Diego, Calif. on Friday night.

Chris Wagner scored twice and Andrew Welinski had three assists to lead the the Gulls.

Both teams had five power play opportunities but the Gulls (29-14-2-2) were able to cash in three times with the extra player advantage.

Corey Tropp scored the first power play goal for Gulls to tie the game at 1-1.

Texas (24-24-1-2) had taken the lead on a goal by Jason Dickinson seven minutes into the first period. Andrew Bodnarchuk’s interference penalty set up Tropp’s tying goal.

Wagner notched his first goal with less than three minutes to play in the first period to give the Gulls a 2-1 lead.

Texas tied the game in the second period on an unassisted goal by Travis Morin, his 18th of the season.

Power play goals by Kevin Roy and Antoine Laganiere put San Diego in control with a 4-2 lead heading into the final period.

The Stars were unable to get a goal in the final period, but the Gulls weren’t done. Nick Sorensen scored in under six minutes and Wagner added an empty net goal with less than five minutes to play.

Dustin Tokarski picked up the win as his defense was able to kill off five penalties. He stopped 25 out of 27 shots.

Maxime Lagace took the loss for Texas, stopping 25 shots on 30 attempts.

The Stars stay out west as they face Stockton on Sunday at 6 p.m. They’ll try to end their four-game losing streak.
