In the middle of three road games this past week the Arizona Sundogs scored a 4-2 victory over the Central Hockey League's leading team Allen Americans at the Texans' stadium Saturday.

The Fort Worth Brahmas shut out the Sundogs 3-0 to start the road stand Friday. Adam Russo suffered the loss in goal, after stopping 23 shots.

As the new month began, the Sundogs' Chad Nehring recorded the night's first goal in the second frame, but the visitors quickly found themselves down 2-1 after Allen scored twice in just 48 seconds. Arizona dominated Allen in the third period, however, beginning when Adam Smyth assisted Jake Hauswirth to tie.

Derek LeBlanc scored what would be the game winner, and Kyle Hood added the insurance goal on an empty net, when Allen pulled its goalkeeper in favor of an extra attacker.

The loss was Allen's first by more than one point this season.

David Brown was the winning goalkeeper, turning aside 35 shots.

The Sundogs ended the trek Sunday with a 4-3 loss to the Tulsa Oilers in Oklahoma.

Arizona again struck first, just over a minute into the initial period, with Mario Larocque's fifth goal of the season.

Tulsa knotted it briefly before Ron Meyers regained the lead for the Sundogs, assisted by Kevin Petovello and Jeff Kyrzakos. The first period ended in a 2-2 knot after a chip shot found the net for the Oilers.

In the second period, two minutes after Hauswirth scored Arizona's third goal, the Oilers answered to make it 3-all.

Tulsa played rude host by taking the lead and, ultimately the game, in the final period. Russo stopped 22 shots but shouldered the loss.

Arizona hosted the Denver Cutthroats yesterday after the Tribune's press time. The Rapid City Rush comes to Prescott Valley for Friday and Saturday games. Puck drops at 7:05 p.m.
