Amarillo, with 2 Anchorage skaters, headed to NAHL's Robertson Cup

Posted by Doyle Woody, on April 30, 2013 

Anchorage's Ryan Cole assisted on the third-period, game-winning goal and added an empty-net strike tonight to help the Amarillo Bulls qualify for the NAHL's Robertson Cup.

The Bulls, who also include Anchorage's Gage Christianson, beat the Texas Tornado, 5-3, to sweep the best-of-5 series and bag one of four berths in the Robertson Cup. (The Fairbanks Ice Dogs, deadlocked 1-1 with Wenatchee in the West Division finals, is attempting to seize one of those Cup berths).

In any event, Cole in seven playoff games owns 4-5--9 totals and a +10 rating. Christianson, who was +1 tonight, owns 1-3--4 totals and a +2 rating in seven playoff games.

The Robertson Cup is set for May 10-13 in Frisco, Texas.
