NAHL Showcase Wrap-up: Day 4

Coulee Region Chill 5 – Amarillo Bulls 4 (SO)
With the Showcase title on the line, the Coulee Region Chill survived a furious Amarillo comeback to defeat the Bulls in a shootout, 5-4. The Bulls only needed to win to secure the Showcase title, but Coulee Region had other ideas, especially early in the game. The Chill jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the 1st period with goals from Pavel Rott, David Ripple and Tommy Miller. Amarillo would answer back with three goals of their own in the 2nd period with a goal from Matt Johnson and two goals from TJ Sarcona. After the teams traded goals in the 3rd period and went through a scoreless overtime, the dramatics would end in the shootout as Chill goaltender Aaron Davis bested Bulls goaltender Mike Taffe for the Chill’s 5-4 win and a 3-1 record in the Showcase. Amarillo leaves the Showcase in 1st place in the South Division with a very good 3-0-1 record.
