Wildcats Fall, Surrender Home-Ice Advantage

The Wichita Falls Wildcats had a chance to wrap up their series with top-seeded Topeka with a pair of wins this weekend at home.

Instead, they'll need to win consecutive games on consecutive days, with a seven-hour drive in between, after falling 5-2 at home to the Roadrunners.

Topeka takes a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series.

Tanner Fahlstedt put the Cats on the board first with a goal at 14:16 of the first period, but Topeka scored the next four goals to build a 4-1 lead before Ryan Frost scored short-handed with just 1:35 remaining in the game.

Topeka added a short-handed empty-netter with 33 seconds left for the final score.

Brian Christie had two goals and two assists for the Roadrunners.

The teams will be back at it Saturday night at 7:05 at the Kay Yeager Coliseum. If Wichita Falls wins Saturday, the teams will play a decisive Game 5 Sunday at 7:05 back in Topeka.
