Corpus Christi responded with a power-play strike as Wayland Williams tapped the puck to Caleb O'Brien who one-timed it by Paul Berrafato at 7:13 of the second and the two teams went into the second intermission tied at one goal apiece.
In the third Amarillo came out swinging as Blake Roubos struck 62sec into the final period to put the Bulls up 2-1.
Dan McNamara responded 2:53 later off a great Clint Carlisle pass and the Bulls pulled out to a 3-1 lead.
Omar Mullan tacked on the third goal of the period assisted by Connor Frey and Carter Penzien at 11:27 and led 4-1.
