Rampage Fall to Texas, 3-1

By: San Antonio Rampage Media Relations

Box Score | Game Notes

SAN ANTONIO (October 18, 2013) – The San Antonio Rampage (2-3-0-0) dropped their first of 12 matchups this season against divisional rival, the Texas Stars (2-1-1-0), 3-1, on Friday night in front of a crowd of 6,660 at the AT&T Center.

Rampage netminder Dov Grumet-Morris turned aside 33-of-35 shots to earn Third Star of the Game honors on College Night at AT&T Center.

The Rampage penalty kill was perfect on the night, holding Texas to 0-for-7 with the man advantage. San Antonio has now killed 23-of-24 (95.8%) penalties on the year to lead the AHL.

The year’s first meeting between the I-35 rivals featured a slew of penalties in the opening minutes, as Rampage defenseman Alex Petrovic went off for high sticking just 2:31 into the opening period. The Texas power was short lived, however, as Chris Mueller was whistled for goaltender interference just 35 seconds after the Petrovic minor. The 4-on-4 dissolved into a 4-on-3 for the Stars, as Vincent Trocheck sat for slashing.

All three penalties were killed by their respective teams, and Grumet-Morris stole the show for the remainder of the period. He made two excellent saves; one on a Mueller shot from the top of the crease, and the second a flashy glove save during a penalty kill late in the period.

The Rampage had a final chance to strike first late in the opening frame when Jyrki Jokipakka went to the box for interference, but were unable to capitalize with the man advantage.

Texas broke the stalemate 1:19 into the second period, when Chris Mueller got a shot past Grumet-Morris from the bottom of the right circle. His goal was his first on the season, and gave the Stars a 1-0 lead.

A San Antonio turnover at their blueline led to what appeared to be a second goal for the Stars. Francis Wathier streaked down the right side, and his rebound was gathered by Taylor Peters, who knocked it past Grumet-Morris. The Texas celebration was cut short as the referees called the play under review, and eventually ruled it no goal due to the kicking motion of Peters’ skate that sent the puck over the goal line.

With just over five minutes remaining in the second, Greg Rallo ripped a shot from the right circle that caught the very end of Garrett Wilson’s stick. The tip-in proved effective, marking Wilson’s first goal of the season and tied the game at 1-1.

However, only 26 seconds later, Grumet-Morris came out of his crease to play the puck, but was dispossessed by Stars winger Brendan Ranford, who fired it past the Rampage goalie and into the open net. The goal, Ranford’s first of the year, put the Stars back on top, where they ultimately stayed for the rest of the game.

The Rampage were handed a golden opportunity four and a half minutes into the third in the form of a Brett Ritchie high sticking double minor. Despite the extended power play, the Rampage were unable to cash in.  Bobby Butler had the best chance of the power play, but rang a shot off the crossbar from the slot.

The teams continued to exchange penalties in the third period and a Travis Morin empty netter with 21.6 seconds remaining sealed the 3-1 victory for the Stars.

Texas outshot San Antonio, 36-27, on the night. San Antonio finished 0-for-8 on the power play, while Texas was 0-for-7 with the man advantage. 

The Rampage travel north to the Cedar Park Center tomorrow (Saturday) night to complete the home-and-home with the Texas Stars. Puck drop for the second of 12 meetings between the two rivals is set for 7 p.m.

Individual and season tickets can be purchased at the AT&T Center Southeast Box Office, by calling a Rampage representative at 210-444-5554, or online at sarampage.com.
