Rampage center Scott Timmins scored with 1:48 remaining in regulation to give San Antonio a 4-3 win over the Texas Stars at Cedar Park Center Thursday night. The Rampage (3-1-0-0) recorded their second consecutive win to move them to the top of the West Division in a three-way tie with Oklahoma City and Abbotsford.

Stars right wing Tomas Vincour scored just 20 seconds into the Stars power-play to give Texas a 1-0 lead at the 10:45 mark of the opening period.  Vincour gained possession of the puck and skated along the left wing boards toward the blue line before switching directions and firing a shot from the left circle that beat Rampage netminder Brian Foster high glove side. Jordie Benn and Colton Sceviour were credited with the assists on Vincour’s first goal of the season.

Just 18 seconds later the Rampage took advantage of a Stars turnover to even the score at 1-1. Texas goalie Richard Bachman stepped out of the crease to chase the puck behind the net and quickly swept the puck out to the slot where Timmins was stationed to punch it home before Bachman could get back into position.

The Rampage scored two power-play goals within a span of 3:36 to get the second period started. Michal Repik tallied his first goal of the season just 1:30 into the middle stanza to give the Rampage a 2-1 advantage.  San Antonio defenseman Tyson Strachan took a shot from the blue line straight down the middle that was deflected off the padding of Bachman and out to the left circle where Repik was able to get a shot off immediately and beat Bachman low. Angelo Esposito was credited with the additional helper for his first point of the season.


Former Texas Stars forward Greg Rallo posted his first goal of season just 3:36 later to extend the Rampage lead to 3-1. Repik picked up his second point of the game as the puck came off the boards and hit the stick of Repik before landing behind the right skate of Rallo, who quickly turned and fired a shot over the glove of Bachman. Esposito was credited with the additional helper for his second assist of the game.


Just 1:12 into the third period, Vincour scored his second goal of the night to cut the Stars’ deficit to 3-2. Texas defenseman Brad Lukowich gained possession of the puck off a Rampage turnover in the neutral zone and passed it off to Vincour. Vincour skated the puck into the Rampage zone and took a shot that was deflected off the back of a diving Mike Kostka and back to Vincour who shot the puck under the pads of Foster.


The Stars knotted the score at 3-3 with a goal by Travis Morin, his first of the season, at the 5:47 mark of the third frame. Maxime Fortunus received a pass from Darren Spang and skated down the middle before passing it off to Morin at the left circle who sent a shot over the left shoulder of Foster.


With 1:48 remaining in regulation Timmins tallied his second goal of the night. Rampage defenseman Colby Robak skated the puck from the blue line to the top of the right circle and fired a shot that was tipped in front by Timmins and over the right shoulder of Bachman to give the Rampage their second consecutive win.


Foster stopped 36 of 39 Stars shots for his third win of the season while Bachman registered 15 saves on 19 Rampage shots. The win puts the Rampage at the top of the Lone Star Faceoff standings with four points and a 2-0-0-0 record.


The Rampage return home tomorrow night to face the Peoria Rivermen at 7 p.m. at the AT&T Center. Friday night features a KZEP Dollar Drink Night and an OVERTIME performance by Silent Minority.
