Stockton Heat come back to defeat Texas Stars


Ethan Werek scored two goals and Texas led by three goals, but the Stockton Heat came back to defeat the Stars 5-4 in an American Hockey League game at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park on Friday night.

The Stars took a 3-0 lead before Stockton even got on the scoreboard, but four straight goals by the Heat completed the comeback.

Morgan Klimchuk’s goal a little over midway through the final period proved to be the game-winner.

Jason Dicksinon put Texas up 1-0 in the first period on a power play goal before Dillon Heatherington doubled the lead with less than five minutes left in the period.

Werek scored his first goal early in the second period to put Texas up 3-0.

Linden Vey finally got Stockton going less than a minute after Werek’s goal. Vey also assisted on the Heat’s next goal.

Texas went up by three goals once more when Werek scored his second goal of the game at 13:20 into the period.

A run of four straight goals for the Heat began with a power play goal by Mark Jankowski with less than four minutes left in the middle frame.

With the score 4-2 in favor of Texas, Stockton turned a penalty kill into a scoring opportunity. Garnet Hathaway scored shorthanded at 18:21 left in the second period to pull the Heat to within one goal.

Tyler Wotherspoon scored unassisted early in the third period to tie the game.

Justin Peters took the loss as he saved 24 out of 29 shots.

Stockton’s Jon Gillies was pulled from the net after allowing four goals and David Rittich picked up the win, saving all nine shots he faced.
