Ture Linden was a force to be reckoned with this past weekend as the Lone Star Brahmas collected three wins in as many games played. The Great Falls, VA native and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute commit recorded 4G-2A in the three games including two game winning goals. The scoring barrage pushed his goal streak to four straight games and he now has points in eight of his last nine games played.

In the first contest of the weekend on Friday night the Brahmas played host to the Kenai River Brown Bears for the first time in franchise history. Linden scored the first two goals of the contest during the second period of the Brahmas 3-1 win over the visitors. Both Linden goals came on the power play.

On Saturday, Lone Star scored a 5-0 win over the Brown Bears with Linden recording the second goal for the Brahmas in the first period. He would add a secondary assist on Steven Ipri’s power play goal just 29 seconds into the middle frame then closed out the scoring with a primary assist on Jakub Sirota’s tally with 15 seconds left in the period. In four games against Kenai River on the season, Linden logged 3G-4A.

Lone Star closed out their week Sunday welcoming the NAHL South Division leading Shreveport Mudbugs into the NYTEX Sports Centre. After a scoreless first period Linden netted the eventual game winner 12:09 into the second with the only goal of the period. The Brahmas’ Aidan Spellacy would add a late empty net goal as Lone Star shutout the Mudbugs 2-0. Linden has recorded 1G-3A in four games played against Shreveport.

Brahmas’ netminder Harrison Feeney  also drew the attention of the league during the weekend play as well earning Bauer NAHL Player of the Week Honorable Mention.

Feeney was in net for both games against the Kenai River Brown Bears claiming wins both nights including his first shutout of the season. A native of Layayette Hill, PA, Feeney’s season record now stands at 7-3-1-0 on the season with a miniscule 1.57 Goals Against Average and a 0.925 Save Percentage.

In game one against Kenai River, Feeney stopped 19 of the 20 shots that came his way on the night. The only goal scored by the visiting Brown Bears came at 10:14 of the third on a controversial goal. While the net was clearly off its moorings, the referees allowed the goal to stand wiping out Feeney’s bid for his first shutout.

With his performance on Friday night, Feeney earned the call for game two as well. Lone Star scored two early in the opening period allowing Feeney to settle in. He turned aside all 15 shots in the contest to claim his second win in two nights as well as the shutout that had eluded him to that point in the season. Five times in the 12 games Feeney has started this season he has allowed a single goal.
