Peter Szabo had a season-high three assists in the night and Stephen Werner was credited with the game-winning goal, his second of the year.

Friday night was unfortunately a different story as Texas downed the Stingrays 6-3.
Jarrett Konkle had a goal in the effort, his fifth of the season and first since coming back from hand surgery.

The team did end the weekend on a high note defeating Texas 4-3 in overtime on Saturday night.
Matt Stefanishion scored two goals in the game, including the tying goal at 12:11 of the third and Donny Grover notched the game-winner just 30 seconds into overtime.
