Reported by: Charlie Bartlett

The Wildcats are not done yet and they're definitely not going out without a fight.

Saturday night, the Wichita Falls Wildcats kept their season alive with a thrilling 4-3 overtime win over the Topeka Road Runners, tying the series at 2-2.

Ryan Frost came up in the clutch at the right time. He scored the game-winning goal in overtime, forcing a final game five of the first round series. Mikhail Sentyurin had the assist on the Frost goal.

The Cats opened the game on a slow start trailing 2-0 after the 1st period, but they seemed to regroup when it mattered the most.

Wichita Falls outscored the Road Runners 3-1 through the second and third period, forcing overtime from a game-tying goal from Ryan Frost with only 27 seconds to play in regulation.

Frost led the Wildcats with two goals and one assist while Mikhail Sentyurin paced the team with one goal and one assist.

The Wildcats were only 1-5 on the powerplay, but out shot Topeka 30-8.

Game five of the best-of-five series  is scheduled for Monday night at Topeka. Face-off set for 7:00 PM.
