Runners blanked in New Mexico

RIO RANCHO, N.M. — Topeka fired 23 shots at New Mexico goalie Marco Wieser on Friday night, but Wieser shot down every attempt as the Mustangs earned a 1-0 victory and snapped the RoadRunners’ four-game winning streak.

Topeka (32-9), which leads the NAHL’s South Division by eight points, lost for only the second time in 15 games. The RoadRunners were 0-for-5 on powerplays as Wieser kept their offense at bay.

New Mexico (13-29) is last in the NAHL South standings, but the Mustangs made Brad Wilhelm’s goal at the 8:53 mark of the opening period hold up. Evan Johnston assisted on Wilhelm’s score.

The two teams will conclude their three-game series at 7:30 Saturday night in Santa Ana Star Center.
