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.
