The San Antonio Rampage dropped the final contest of a stretch of three games in three days with a 3-1 loss to the Milwaukee Admirals on Sunday afternoon at the Bradley Center.

The Admirals got on the board first with a goal from right wing Juusso Puustinen 10:04 into the first. Puustinen took a feed at the right circle from center Kyle Wilson and fired a slap shot past Rampage goaltender Brian Foster and inside the left post to give Milwaukee a 1-0 lead. Forward Michael Latta picked up his 11th point of the season with the secondary assist on the play.

Center Chris Mueller extended the Admirals advantage to 2-0 nearly five minutes later when he skated to the top of the crease and one-timed a pass from right wing Taylor Beck through the legs of Foster. Forward Zack Stortini also assisted on Mueller’s fourth goal of the campaign.

Rampage forward Bracken Kearns cut the Milwaukee lead to 2-1 at the 14:30 mark of the second period when he scored San Antonio’s first goal of the game off of a broken play in the Admirals zone. Kearns took a shot from the slot area that was blocked by an Admiral defender, but the rebound came right back to Kearns. He flipped the puck over the blocker of Milwaukee backstop Jeremy Smith for his sixth score of the season. Right wing Bill Thomas notched his sixth point in his last three games with the assist on the Kearns goal.

The Admirals received a goal from defenseman Ryan Ellis to restore their lead to two at 3-1 before the second period ended. After a Milwaukee power play had just expired, Ellis cut to the middle of the ice, took a centering pass from left wing Gabriel Bourque, and fired a shot into the left side of the net for his fourth score of the season at 16:53 of the middle stanza. Defenseman Victor Barley recorded his fifth assist of the year with the secondary helper.

Smith made 14 stops on 15 Rampage shots for his ninth win of the season while Foster turned aside 25 of the 28 Admirals shots he faced in the San Antonio loss.

The Rampage (7-10-0-0) are back in action on Wednesday when they continue their seven-game road trip with a visit to Rockford to play the IceHogs. Puck drop is set for 7:05 p.m. (CST) at the BMO Harris Bank Center for the first meeting of the season between the IceHogs and the Rampage.
