Wildcats Return Home, Pummel New Mexico

The Wichita Falls Wildcats desperately needed to take care of business Friday night.

They had the NAHL South division's cellar-dwellers in town, a team that had not won a road game all season.

And the Wildcats had only won three games since Thanksgiving, coming off an 0-3-1 road trip.

They did take care of business, romping past the Mustangs 5-0.

Dakota Klecha got things started just 1:15 in, taking a feed from Tanner Fahlstedt and beating New Mexico goalie Matt Madore to put the Cats up 1-0.

Later in the first, Chris Leone put the Wildcats up 2-0 on the power play, converting a rebound off of a Will Suter shot in a scrum in front of the net at 13:02.

The 'Cats added three more goals in the second period, from Mac Olson, Drew Allen and Patrick Yudez, to build a commanding lead. Yudez's goal was an unassisted, shorthanded goal.

Tyler Green stopped all 29 shots he faced for his second shutout of the season.

The teams meet again Saturday night at 7:05 at the Kay Yeager Coliseum.
