FORT WAYNE (Indiana's NewsCenter) - T.J. Fox scored the third Texas goal in the shootout that lifted the visiting Brahmas to a 5-4 win over the Komets Wednesday night.

The K's were rewarded with one point for their third period rally, in which they scored three times, including twice in the last four minutes.

Bryant Molle gave the Komets a brief 1-0 lead in the second period, and then after Texas had scored three straight, Leo Thomas notched a power play goal early in the third to pull Fort Wayne within a goal.

Texas restored the two goal edge, but a shorthanded goal by Bobby Chaumont and a power play goal by Jamie Milam forced overtime and then the shootout.

The Komets are in Evansville Friday night.
