WICHITA, Kan. (Mar. 2) – Wichita returned home on Saturday night, losing 8-4 to Allen at INTRUST Bank Arena. 

The Americans scored five times in the first period and never looked back.

Bennett MacArthur scored one minute into the first period to start the onslaught. Allen created a turnover near its own blueline, came back through the neutral zone on a three-on-two and MacArthur buried a shot past Trevor Gorsuch. 

He recorded his second at 8:55 on the power play. Colby McAuley fired a shot from the right circle that tipped off of MacArthur's stick and it got past Gorsuch to make it 2-0. 

At 9:48, Tarun Fizer made it 3-0 with assists to Kris Myllari and MacArthur. 

Johnny Walker and Fizer recorded goals just over a minute apart late in the frame to make it 5-0 and that would be it for Gorsuch. Kevin Resop came on in relief. 

In the second, Gavin Gould and Liam Finley extended the lead to 7-0. 

Dillon Boucher broke the shutout bid for Marco Costantini at 13:24. Myllari threw a blind pass into the slot and Boucher fired a shot into the net to make it 7-1.

Blake Murray made it 8-3 at 8:45 of the third. Fizer found him through the slot and he slipped one past Resop.  

Stinil closed the scoring at 19:43. He came out of the penalty box after serving a major that was called against Dominic Dockery. Boucher found him behind the Allen defense and Stinil buried a shot past Costantini to make it 8-4.
