TOPEKA TAKES 2-0 LEAD OVER BULLS

For the first time in team history, the Amarillo Bulls find themselves in a big hole to dig out of in the post season.

The Bulls surrendered two 3rd period goals and dropped a 3-1 decision to the Topeka RoadRunners on Saturday night at the Budweiser Bull Pen in the Amarillo Civic Center. For the first time the Bulls trail a playoff series 2-0. Game three of the Best-Of-Five South Division Final set for Thursday night at Kansas Expo Center Landon Arena.

Brendan Vetter tallied the lone Bulls goal, while goaltender Collin Delia, who was locked up in a terrific duel with PJ Bridges, stopped 33 of 36 shots he faced in the loss.

The Amarillo Bulls got the start they needed in the opening 20 minutes. Brendan Vetter scored 26 seconds into the contest when his power play blast from the point beat goaltender PJ Bridges. However that would be all Bridges would allow the rest of the way.

 

VENOM FALL TO STARS IN NEW MEXICO

The Amarillo Venom lost their second straight game in the Lone Star Football League on Saturday, falling on the road at the New Mexico Stars 70-49.  Details of the game were not available on the Venom or LSFL website. 

The loss drops the Venom to 2-2 on the season.  They will be back home on Saturday, April 26th to host the West Texas Wildcatters beginning at 7:05 p.m. at the Amarillo Civic Center.

WT SPRING SPORTS

After suffering a disappointing loss in the opener, the No. 6 West Texas A&M baseball team responded with a 5-1 win in the nightcap of a doubleheader Saturday afternoon at Angelo State.

In the first game, WT held a 7-3 lead in the fifth inning but ended up losing 10-8 on a three-run, walk-off home run.

That leaves WT 31-12 on the year and 19-10 in Lone Star Conference play. Angelo State ended the series at 25-19 and 14-15 in league play.

It was the Buffs' 31st win of the season, topping last season’s win total and pulled the Buffs within one game of LSC-leader Texas A&M-Kingsville in the standings with six conference games remaining. TAMUK lost the final game of a three game series at home to Eastern New Mexico Saturday. WT owns the tiebreaker with TAMUK, winning four of seven games this season against the Javelinas. The regular season LSC champion will host the LSC Baseball Championship, May 8-10. 

 

The West Texas A&M men’s and women’s track & field teams wrapped up three weekend meets across two states on Saturday afternoon with some excellent individual performances. The Buffs and No. 12 Lady Buffs sent 10 distance and middle distance runners to compete and returned home with four provisional qualifying times and three new school records.

WT split time between the 87th running of the Kansas Relays in Lawrence Kan. and two meets in California, the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut and the Beach Invitational in Norwalk. Juniors Emma Love and Haley Sparks and sophomore Mireia Guarner all broke school records in their events. Sparks and Guarner, along with juniors Baptiste Moreu and Dylan Doss, also ran for provisional qualifying times.

Potter County Extension Agent Nathan Carr said, “We want to make sure to educate them on what PEDV is and how to prepare and perform best practices and biosecurity for their operation so we can hopefully minimize the effects of this horrible virus.” The event is free, but an RSVP is requested by April 24.  For more information, call the Potter County Extension Office at (806) 373-0713.
