Wildcats Swept by Topeka, Fall 4-2

Friday night's matchup between the Wichita Falls Wildcats and the Topeka Roadrunners was a likely first-round playoff preview, but if the playoff series holds to the regular-season form, it will be a short run for the 'Cats.

Wichita Falls took a 2-1 lead early in the third period, but gave up the last three goals for a 4-2 loss.

Nate Milam figured in every goal for the Roadrunners, recording a hat trick plus an assist on Justin Hussar's go-ahead goal in the third period.

Just over a minute after Milam put Topeka up 1-0 midway through the second, the Wildcats scored on a wild scrum in front of the net. Keil Zornow was officially given credit for the goal, but it appeared that Richard Young may have actually put it in.

Drew Allen scored a power-play goal 1:37 in to the third to give the home team a lead, but Milam's second tied it up just 61 seconds later.

After Hussar's goal, Milam finished off the trick with a short-handed goal at 8:57 to finish the scoring.

The Wildcats will travel to Frisco Saturday night for the first of two against the Tornado, with the second a Tuesday makeup game, dating back to the February Freeze.

They'll be back home Wednesday for their final meeting of the season with Amarillo, before their final home weekend series of the year against New Mexico.

They finish the regular season the following weekend in Fresno, Calif. against the Falcons.
