Arlington, Midlothian, Grand Prairie, Duncanville and Cedar Hill School Districts are eligible to play for the Attack!
The Arlington/Midlothian Attack opened their 2015/2016 season at home in Euless taking on the Plano Senior Wildcats. Excitement was defintely in the air as the Gold Attack team took the ice. Despite Plano's large bench and large players (Plano Senior is home to Juniors and Seniors), the home team took the ice confident in their abilities and off season conditioning. The game got off to a quick start with end to end rushes and bruising hits. Midway through the first with Plano pressuring, the Attack found themselves on the penalty kill. With efficient puck movement with the odd man, Plano capitalized with 6:34 remaining in the first. The same combination of Plano players tallied again 1:15 later to carry a 2 goal lead into the second. After a rousing intermission chat, a determined Attack came out with new life in the new period. Four minutes in, Taylor Bowman charged hard into Plano territory taking the wide angle and wrapping around the net. Bowman found Ruble and Snetsinger crashing hard on the backside who were able to find the back of the net! The game was on as the Attack won the period and closed the gap to 2-1 after two. Despite a solid effort in the third, the Attack fell to Plano being outshot 28-17.
The Attack moves on to face Keller in Euless Thursday night. In other league play, Plano West defeated Lovejoy and Soutlake Carroll beat Jesuit in a shoot out.
