Rhinos to honor local educators with free tickets to weekend series vs Dallas

The Rhinos are back at home for Teacher Appreciation this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday as they take on the Dallas Snipers.

By presenting a valid school staff ID at the Box Office, teachers, as well as school and district employees receive one free ticket to each game this weekend.

After a hard-fought series in Oklahoma last weekend, the Rhinos are still atop the Midwest Mountain Division.

In game one, El Paso fell to the Oklahoma City Blazers, 4-1, but posted a 6-1 win in game two. On Sunday, the Blazers scored first in game three and led the Rhinos by three goals at the start of the third period.

Less than seven minutes in, Heath Drye cut the Blazers lead to two before Jonathan Gullstedt, Sam Sykes, and Easton Easterson scored, respectively, three more unanswered goals in the final minute and five seconds to earn a 5-4 win in regulation.

This weekend, they welcome to El Paso the Dallas Snipers, who are currently ranked fifth in the Midwest Mountain Division.

In El Paso’s first regular-season series of the season, the Snipers forced a shootout in game one.

The Rhinos earned the win and went on to claim victories in games two and three. The series was not without dozens of penalties and intense physicality, which is likely to carry over into the upcoming games.

The puck will drop at 7 pm on Friday and Saturday and at 4:30 pm on Sunday at the El Paso County Coliseum Events Center (4100 E. Paisano).
