The Colorado Avalanche got their grove on for five goals in the first period of a 6-3 win over the Dallas Stars in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal matchup Monday night. Colorado was facing elimination in the Stanley Cup Playoffs when they put it in high-gear and scored four goals in a two-minute, 36-second span in the first period. Dallas’ Ben Bishop had not played since August 13, was pulled from in front of the net after allowing the four goals on 19 shots. The Avalanche will look to even the series at 3-3 in Game 6 Wednesday night.

The Cooper Bulldogs came to play last Friday and walked off the field with a 54-0 statement over the Grand Saline Indians. That was a one-sided offense. If you wanted to see a two-sided offense, then you should have been at the Tatum-Center Game that ended in favor of Tatum 63-62. The Tatum Eagle’s Coach Jason Holman says that wasn’t what he would have predicted. The guys in the back, Tylin Hollins and Decartiyay Allison kept the Eagles’ in pace with the Center’s offense. Coach Holman hopes it is not a one-point spread when they face Daingerfield Friday, but it if is, he hopes they come out with the same results as they did against Center.
