NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, TX – The Brahmas are ready for revenge after sitting on a weekend-series loss to the Sugar Land Imperials two weeks ago.
THE OPPOSITION: It’s not secret this season has been a rough one for the Euless Jr. Stars. The team has just two wins in the last month and a half, both coming to the only team lower than them in the division, the Louisiana Drillers.
The team has attempted to progress over the course of the season, however, coming a long way from a minimal roster on opening night against the Brahmas. Since then, the Stars have added four former Texas players, most recently Chase Deacon and Jason Moore.
While those two may be hungry for revenge against their former team, it’s Kayne Fedor who continues to be the workhorse offensively. The only player averaging more than a point-per-game this season was kept relatively quiet versus Sugar Land last weekend and has just one point in five games against the Brahmas this season.
THE BRAHMAS: As if Sugar Land stealing four of six points during their trip to NYTEX wasn’t enough of a wake up call, coach Al Rooney trading returner Chase Deacon to the cross-town rival certainly made some eyes raise in the locker room.
The motto all season long has been discipline, and with three players (Deacon, Ryan Dunner, and Bennett Weycker) receiving misconducts during the previous series, it’s evident penalties of that nature won’t be tolerated moving forward.
With Deacon and Jason Moore now dawning the Euless green, that allowed the roster move to bring Trey Greene in to take place.
Greene had played 22 games with the Alexandria Blizzard prior to coming over and his play prior to the move shows there’s a lot of potential and room to grow. He’s expected to make his debut this weekend.
Puck drop is scheduled for 7:30 at Euless both Friday and Saturday!
