Tornado Start Strong, Sweep Season Series with 6-2 Win

Ondrej Kopta and Jack Prince each scored twice in the Texas Tornado's 6-2 victory over the Fresno Monsters on Friday night. Drew Allen picked up a goal and two assists in his first game in over a month after returning from an injury. Garland native Hunter Leisner, acquired from Aberdeen earlier in the week and making his first start in net with the Tornado, saw just 19 shots but picked up his first win with the team. With the win, Texas improves its record to 26-11-6, good for 58 points and second in the South Division.
