Snipers Head To Kansas

DALLAS SNIPERS (10-29-0, 20 pts)


The Dallas Snipers earned a three-game series sweep for the first time since October, sweeping their Mid-Western Division rivals, the Wichita Jr. Thunder, at home over the weekend. 

All three Sniper goalies played over the weekend with Manny Legace (42 saves), Rafael Goncalves (20), and Evan Williams (39) each earning victories.

Michael Pistek continued his hot play of late, scoring a 2-8-10 line against the Jr. Thunder. That brings Pistek up to 33 points this season – his first full year with Dallas. 

Sterling Cooper was up to his old tricks, scoring a 3-4-7 line, and now leads the team with an impressive 21-34-55 line for the year. Cooper’s 55 points this season matches his previous three seasons combined. 

Head Coach Aaron Davis credits Cooper’s impressive year to his work ethic.

“Hard work and wanting to become better to help the team,” Davis said of Cooper’s qualities. “He has been with me the last four years and in his first two, he had some injuries that limited his games. He has put in the work over the summers and has become a great player.  I am glad to see these guys growing into better hockey players daily.”

Dallas continues with Wichita when they travel to Kansas for the final three-game set with the Jr. Thunder this weekend.
