Texas Stars fall in overtime to Tucson Roadrunners


The Texas Stars were dealt a loss for the second night in a row against the Tucson Roadrunners at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park Saturday night. This time they fell 2-1 in overtime to the visiting team.

Mike Sislo scored 50 seconds into the extra period to claim the victory. He was assisted by Kyle Capobianco and Lawson Crouse on the power play.

Texas (25-18-5-2) took the lead in the first period on a power-play goal by Justin Dowling, assisted by Brian Flynn and Travis Morin. It was Morin’s league-leading 38th assist of the season and 16th for Flynn.

The Stars held the lead until the second half of the third period when Dylan Strome struck for the Roadrunners (27-14-2-1). He scored at 8:36 into the final frame on an assist by Joel Hanley to tie the game. It was Strome’s 18th goal on the season.

Neither team scored again until Sislo ended the game in the extra frame.

Adin Hill earned the win as he stopped 27 of the 28 shots he faces.

Mike McKenna was hit with the loss after allowing two goals on 25 shots.

Both teams cashed in on a power-play goal, with Texas going 1-for-7 while Tucson went 1-for-4.
