With a marked chill in the air, the Arlington/Midlothian faithful filed in to the Dallas Stars Center in Euless in hopes of spurring their home town heroes to victory. After a crisp warmup, the home team brought their fans to their feet off the opening faceoff. Rehonic donning the third Sunday jersey took the puck drop into the offensive zone and worked it across to Branch. Branch froze the visiting goaltender with a head-fake, moved across the crease and delivered a back end to the back of the net. Just nine seconds in, the Attack was on the board and back at center ice for the ensuing faceoff. Arlington/Midlothian would dominate play for the next five minutes forcing an early first period time out by Birdville. The visiting coaching staff would rally their troops and a hard hitting team came off the bench to pressure the Attack. The pressure worked and the game was deadlocked at one after one. The tie would stand until five minutes into the second when Jonathan Loggins would hold the offensive point and deliver a laser on the Birdville netminder. Branch found himself positioned in the goal scorers slot and quickly roughed the ensuing rebound! The Attack would blow the game wide open in the third getting goals from Rehonic (assisted by Hooker), Bowman and Martinez. The strong showing of offensive power was clear in the result 5-3 and the shots advantage of 42-21. The Attack will look to build on this victory as the take on Southlake and continue their climb in the standings.
