Brian Christie (26) fights through a Tornado defenseman Thursday night in Texas. The RoadRunners won the game, 3-2. 

Entering the final weekend of the years longest road trip, RoadRunners head coach Scott Langer knew his team would need to stay focused against the team directly behind them in the NAHL South. Topeka answered the bell, pulling out a hard fought 3-2 road win to increase their South Division lead to 11 points. 

It was a scoreless first period, but only because of a controversial "no goal" call that deflected off the shin of RoadRunner forward Andrew White into the net but was waved off despite the absence of a kicking motion. Texas outshot Topeka in the first period 8-6.
