The San Antonio Rampage extended their winning streak to three games scoring three early goals against the Oklahoma City Barons for a 4-1 victory in their first meeting in franchise history at the Cox Convention Center Friday night.

 

Center Tim Stapleton set the tone, scoring the Rampage’s first two goals in the first period. At the 3:03 marker, the Rampage benefited from a Barons turnover in their defensive zone which allowed Staplelton to record his first goal of the season off a pass from left wing Mikkel Boedker.

Just over three minutes later, Stapleton continued to apply the offensive pressure as he was in perfect position to reach the rebound off right wing Brett MacLean’s shot attempt bringing the score to 2-0. Garrett Stafford was credited with the second assist.

The Barons outshot the Rampage 14-13 during the first period as San Antonio goaltender Al Montoya successfully stopped all pucks that came his way.

The Rampage continued their energy into the second stanza and extended their lead with a goal at the 2:34 marker from left wing Alex Picard. Picard was able to tally his fourth goal of the season when he received a pass from Matt Beaudoin at the top of the crease and cleared a shot over Oklahoma City goaltender Martin Gerber’s right shoulder. Viktor Tikhonov was credited with the second assist and Beaudoin’s helper extended his point streak to five games. 

With the second period coming to a close, Barons left winger Liam Reddox put Oklahoma City on the board scoring with 2:29 left in the middle frame. Reddox skated down center ice managing to squeeze himself through a gap between two Rampage players and took a shot that escaped over Montoya’s left shoulder that landed in the net for his third goal of the season. Taylor Chorney and Linus Omark were credited with the helpers.

San Antonio established a 4-1 lead on Matt Pope’s goal at the 9:44 marker of the second period when Bracken Kearns, who was under pressure behind the net, managed a pass that was redirected by Pope at the right post and past Gerber.  San Antonio right wing Ryan Hollweg provided the second assist on Pope’s first goal of the season.

The Rampage held on to seal their first road victory, 4-1, while San Antonio goalie Al Montoya  turned away 25 of 26 Barons shots for his first win of the season. Barons netminder Martin Gerber made 20 saves on 24 Rampage shot attempts.

The Rampage return to the AT&T Center tomorrow night to host the Houston Aeros at 7 p.m. and will wear Spurs themed jerseys for their 6th annual Spurs Night. Fans can enjoy a Q&A session with Spurs guard George Hill and Spurs Vice President of Basketball Operations Danny Ferry starting at 6:15 p.m. on the Bud Light Courtyard.
