The El Paso Rhinos ran their league-best record to 18-0-2, upending the Lafayette Cajun Catahoulas, 3-2, in the Sierra Providence
Center Saturday night.
Marcus Wilhite scored one goal and assisted on another to earn First Star of the Game honors, though
Lafayette goaltender Brenden Parkyn earned Third Star, saving 53 of 56 Rhinos shots.
The home side could not bust through Parkyn’s defense, and the Catahoulas played some solid “D” of their own, challenging the Rhinos through the latter stages of the game.
El Paso would not be denied, as Wilhite started the scoring just 3:36 into the first period, taking a feed from Nick Gorup and beating Parkyn low.
