Texas Brahmas Strong Play is Drawing Attention

In Friday's Shots From the Point, the CHL talked about DFW's very own Texas Brahmas a little:

The Texas Brahmas (22-9-3) have been on fire going 11-3-2 since early December and have firmly claimed their spot atop the Southeast Division with a six point lead over the second place Laredo Bucks. Texas has won six straight games overall and six straight road games (just one shy of the longest CHL road win streak this season). The Brahmas went 24-7-1 during the second half of the season a year ago and are already 2-0 during their second half this season. Jordan Cameron’s 19 points (7-12=19) is pacing the Brahmas over the last two games followed by Grant Jacobsen’s 14 points (7-7=14). Goaltender Brett Jaeger has won seven straight games allowing just 13 goals over that stretch. Texas should get only better when Friday night forward Travis Banga is in the line-up after being acquired from Rio Grande Valley. Banga, a two-time all-star, has scored 269 points (116-153=269) in 246 career CHL games.

The Brahmas have been strong all year, and have really ramped it up over the last month. It looks like they're starting another 2nd-half rampage a little early this year.
