(INDEPENDENCE, MO): After a great win against the last place Tulsa Oilers, Friday, the Missouri Mavericks traveled to Texas to play the Allen Americans. The Allen Americans are in first place in the CHL Standing but with the Missouri Mavericks being hot as of late, this game would be a challenge for the Americans. The Mavericks found their third consecutive win with a final score of 4-0. Mathieu Corbiel played very well notching a shutout and the defense was once again unstoppable.
The Mavericks scored twice during the first period, the first coming at the 5:06 mark in the period. Sebastien Thinel scored the goal giving the Mavericks the lead. This goal was assisted by Josh Hepditch and JP Testwuide. Two minutes later, Sebastian Thinel netted another goal with assists by Kenton Miller and Andrew Courtney. Even though the Americans were able to take 10 shots, Matheiu Corbiel allowed no goals.
