The Lone Star Brahmas and Shreveport Mudbugs facedoff for the first time in the 2018/19 season on Friday night at NYTEX Sports Centre with third place in the NAHL South on the line.

Despite outshooting the Mudbugs 14-1 in the opening 20 minutes of play the Brahmas went to the locker room with the score deadlocked 0-0.

Shreveports’ second shot of the game didn’t come until 1:46 into the second on a lone man rush by Andrew Jackson. Harrison Feeney slid out to the top of the crease then backed in making a big glove save to keep it scoreless.

With 4:04 gone in the middle frame and Lone Star on the penalty kill, Clayton Lackey broke through the defense and went speeding up ice. He was hauled down from behind putting the Scottsdale, AZ native at center ice for penalty shot. Lackey picked it up and went straight down the middle. He went to the backhand getting Leo Chuard to commit to the near post then pulled it to the forehand to flip it over the right pad for the 1-0 lead.

With just over 12 minutes left to play Josh Barraclough found the puck standing just outside the paint and ripped it on net. Feeney flashed out the pad then dived on the puck to cover and stop play.

Lone Star outshot Shreveport 36-26 on the night and both teams were 0-5 on the power play. Harrison Feeney picked up his second shutout of the season.
