After topping the Oklahoma City Ice Hawks in Rhino Country last weekend, the Rhinos’ NA3HL team has advanced to the Fraser Cup Division Finals and will host the Texas RoadRunners this Saturday.
The puck will drop on Saturday, March 19 at 7 pm, and Sunday, March 20 at 4:30 pm, if necessary. To thank fans for their continued support throughout the season, especially during the first round of playoffs, admission will again be free! The first 500 fans on Saturday will receive free cowbells. All fans are encouraged to bring noisemakers and make Rhino Country raucous.
The Rhinos enter the series as the higher seed, but the RoadRunners defeated the first seed, the Texas Brahmas, in three games last weekend. The winner of the series will advance to the Fraser Cup Finals tournament in St. Peters, Missouri later this month.
El Paso will head to College Station, TX on Thursday, March 17 at 4 pm (MT), for the first game of the best-of-three series. That game can be viewed on HockeyTV.com. The Rhinos will then return to the Sun City to play the RoadRunners at the El Paso County Events Center (4100 E. Paisano) on Saturday at 7 pm. If necessary, game three will be played in Rhino Country on Sunday at 4:30 pm. Games are free; tickets are not needed, and doors open an hour before game time.
Please note: The El Paso Rhinos have two hockey teams in two different leagues. Information on the Rhinos’ NAHL team can be found at elpasorhinos.com and details on the NA3HL team can be found by Clicking Here.
