Wildcats Ready for Tornado, Rough Play

The Wichita Falls Wildcats have won four of their last five games, and Friday night they'll renew hostilities with their old rivals, the Texas Tornado.

The 'Cats lost their first three meetings of the year against Texas, before finally breaking through in their most recent meeting, the night before the Super Bowl.

The series between the two teams has been littered with bad blood, and sometimes spilled blood.

It's something the Wildcats should be used to right now, after a wild pair of games last week against a new rival, the Amarillo Bulls.

Wednesday night's game was mostly orderly. But in Friday night's affair, a first period that featured 56 minutes' worth of penalties exploded into a full line brawl just one second into the second frame.

Over 100 penalty minutes were assessed in just that one brawl, which featured all five skaters from each team pairing off and fighting at the same time.

Thursday Wildcats Head Coach Mark LeRose talked about how with the frequent meetings between NAHL South Division rivals, tensions are bound to boil over.
