Winning streak stopped as Texas Stars fall to Chicago Wolves


The Texas Stars couldn’t extend their winning streak to five games as they fell 4-1 to the Chicago Wolves at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park on Saturday night.

A day after taking a narrow win in overtime against the Wolves, the Stars were only able to get one goal.

Pheonix Copley had a great night for the Wolves, saving 27 out of 28 shots in net.

Ethan Werek scored the lone goal for Texas in the middle frame after the Stars were already down 2-0. Nick Ebert assisted on the play, extending his point streak to six games.

Samuel Blais scored 7:16 into the first period and Andrew Agozzino added another via the power play under three minutes later. Chris Butler assisted on both goals for the Wolves.

After Werek made it a one-goal game, Brett Sterling doubled the lead on a goal early in the third period. Agozzino assisted for his second point of the game.

With the Stars trailing 3-1, Conner Bleackley put the game out of reach on a goal assisted by Jordan Schmaltz.

Justin Peters struggled, saving 20 out of 24 shots while the Stars allowed a power play goal. That ended the Stars’ streak of killing 21 straight penalties.

The Wolves converted 1 of 6 power play opportunities while the Stars went 0 for 4 with the advantage.

Texas will next travel to California to face San Jose at 5 p.m. on Monday. They’ll play six games on the west coast before returning home on March 4.

Golden’s nuggets: Kudos to coming back to finish your college degree

Kudos to several Texas exes who earned their college degrees over the weekend. I’ve always believed it’s much more difficult to return to school a decade-plus later after a career and maintain the discipline needed to earn that degree. It was nice to see former basketball coach Rick Barnes and his All-American point guard T.J. Ford share...

Bohls: Remember sacrifice bunts? Texas baseball has shifted away from small-ball

The Texas baseball team may rank last in the Big 12 in batting average, but it ranks first in double takes. That’s as in hitters, staring down at signals delivered from the third base coaching box and incredulously giving a second glance in disbelief. Earlier this season, Kacy Clemens came to bat with a man on first and all but expected the sign...
