See the Wildcats Free Friday Night!

The Wichita Falls Wildcats have two games left to earn themselves at least a few more games.

They trail Corpus Christi by two points, so essentially one game in the race for the final playoff spot in the South Division.

They'll host Topeka for two games this weekend to end the regular season, while Corpus plays at home against last-place Odessa.

The Wildcats have won four of ten so far against second-place Topeka, and they think they have what it takes to sweep the weekend.

"We've had some success against Topeka," said Head Coach Paul Baxter. "We won two games in their building three weeks ago. Our thinking is that we play our best game, and that's all we can do."

"They have one pretty good line," said forward and leading scorer Eliot Grauer. "The nights we shut them down, I think we do pretty well."

Friday night will be Fan Appreciation Night so all tickets are free.

The day before the game, players said a big crowd can help push them to the two wins they need.

"When you have a packed house, it's just a lot more energy in the building," Grauer said. "When you score a goal, everybody's going crazy. It helps with the bench and the guys."

"It's really great when we have a good crowd backing us and supporting us," said forward Will Vosejpka. "When the building's getting loud it's really fun.

"So I hope everyone gets out there, takes advantage of the free ticket night, and helps us try to make our playoff push."

You can get individual tickets at the KYC Box Office, which opens Friday at 10 a.m.

For group tickets (5 or more) head to the Wildcats team office, which is also at the MPEC, or call Jennifer at 940-716-5587.
