Texas Stars overpowered by Iowa Wild

The Iowa Wild scored twice on power plays as they defeated the Texas Stars 5-1 at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park on Friday night.

Alex Tuch and Sam Anas each scored two goals for the Wild (28-23-6-2) while Ethan Werek was the only Texas Star to cash in offensively.

Alex Stalock made 32 saves on 33 shots to get the win in net for the Wild.

Justin Peters allowed two goals on just three attempts before leaving the game about 13 and a half minutes into the first period. His replacement, Maxime Lagace, allowed three goals on 18 shots.

Anas got things going for Iowa 12 minutes into the first period when he scored on a power play assisted by Mike Reilly and Christoph Bertschy. Reilly assisted on two goals in the game.

Tuch scored his first goal not even a minute after Anas. Tuch’s goal was assisted by Pat Cannone and former Texas Star Maxime Fortunus.

Werek pulled the Stars (27-28-1-2) to within a goal when he scored with the help of Denis Gurianov and Gemel Smith midway through the second period.

Michael Sdao put the Wild back up by two goals early in the third period and Anas cashed in on his second power play goal of the night a little over a minute later.

Tuch scored the final goal 7:41 into the final period to slam the door on the Stars.

Texas outshot Iowa 33-21, but it didn’t matter.

Iowa went 2 for 4 on the power play while Texas was 0 for 4.

The Stars will try to avenge the loss Saturday at 7 p.m. at the H-E-B Center.

NFL draft report card: Grading the NFC teams

NFC EAST Dallas: B Best pick: Chidobe Awuzie. The second-round Colorado CB led a national top-five secondary and is one of the most versatile corners in the draft. He could start quickly. Worst pick: There really isn’t one. CB Jourdan Lewis carries some off-the-field baggage and lacks size, but he continually shut down top receivers in the Big...

The decades-long journey of a father and a son, of a game and a country, ended with a sprint.  When Dovydas Neverauskas — fresh from the airport and wearing cleats and a glove bummed from his new Pittsburgh Pirates teammates — jogged onto the mound at PNC Park on April 24 to clean up what was left a lopsided loss to the Chicago Cubs...
Reyes carries Memphis to win over Round Rock in shortened game

Round Rock had a runner on first in the top of the fifth, but Luis Marte struck out to end the top half of the fifth. The rains came in the middle of the inning to end the possibility of playing...
