Wildcats Eliminated Late in Game 5

The Wichita Falls Wildcats were already playing with house money, but unfortunately their luck ran out with just over a minute to go.

Topeka's Jordan Davis scored his first goal of the playoffs with just 1:04 remaining in regulation to lift the Roadrunners to a 4-3 win over the Wildcats, and the 3-2 series win.

Jason McAloon scored midway through the first and then set up Richard Young for his second of the series in the second period to give the Wildcats a 2-0 road lead, and the upset appeared to be brewing.

But Topeka scored three times in a 4:08 stretch in the second frame to take the lead.

The Wildcats could have rolled over then, but instead they answered back quickly.

Topeka's Daniel Dupell was whistled for checking from behind just eleven seconds after Zach Schrotenboer's go-ahead goal, and on the ensuing power-play Ryan Frost scored his fourth goal of the series to tie the game up just 36 seconds after Topeka had taken the lead.

The game went to the third period knotted at three.

After a third period that was much tighter in terms of shots-on-goal margin than either of the first two, Topeka's Davis was finally able to solve Tyler Green, who stopped 36 of 40 Roadrunner attempts.

Topeka will advance to face Amarillo in a 5-game series for the South Division championship. However, regardless of who wins the tournament, Topeka will still advance to the Robertson Cup Tournament, as the host.
