GREG KELLEY CASE: Texas Ranger affidavit contradicts Kelley statements

Texas Stars score twice in third period to seal win over Tucson

Brandon DeFazio scored less than a minute after Matt Mangene in the third period to lift the Texas Stars to a 3-2 win over the Tucson Roadrunners in an American Hockey League contest on Friday night at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park.

The Stars (22-20-1-2) entered the third period with the game tied before Mangene scored 5:25 into the final frame on assists from Andrew Bodnarchuk and Gemel Smith. DeFazio scored the winning goal just 26 seconds later to put the Stars up 3-1.

DeFazio’s goal was assisted by Travis Morin who recorded his 300th assist as a Star on the play. DeFazio is tied with Matej Stransky for team-lead with 16 goals.

Bodnarchuk opened up the scoring after a scoreless first period when he converted a power play with the help of Smith and Remi Elie in the second period. The goal ended Bodnarchuk’s 27-game goal drought.

Chris Mueller tied the game midway through the middle frame as he scored for Tucson (21-15-5-0) on assists from Anthony DeAngelo and Kyle Wood.

With less than a minute to play, Christian Fischer scored to cut the Stars’ lead to one goal but it was too late.

Justin Peters picked up the win for Texas as he stopped 25 out of 27 shots against his former team. He’s allowed six goals in three games with the Stars this season. Marek Langhamer made 23 saves on 26 shots.

The teams will face each other once again on Saturday at 7 p.m. at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park.
