The San Antonio Rampage scored two goals in the third period to break a 1-1 tie and defeat the Abbotsford Heat 3-1 on Sunday afternoon at the Abbotsford Entertainment & Sports Centre. The win capped a two-game Rampage sweep over the Heat this weekend.
Defenseman Colby Robak potted his fifth goal of the season 29 seconds into the contest to put the Rampage ahead 1-0. He took a pass from forward Greg Rallo at the blue line and ripped a shot on net that beat screened Heat goaltender Leland Irving for the score. Defenseman Keith Seabrook picked up an assist for the third straight game with the secondary helper on the play.
The Heat pulled even with the Rampage at 12:23 of the second period when center Quintin Laing fired a slap shot past San Antonio backstop Dov Grumet-Morris to knot the score at 1-1. Laing carried the puck to the top of the right circle and let a shot go that Morris could not find through traffic at the front of the net. Center Dustin Sylvester and defenseman Jordan Henry assisted on Laing’s second goal of the season.
Bill Thomas regained the lead for the Rampage with his sixth marker of the season at 6:56 of the third period. Robak began the play with a cross-ice pass to the top of the left circle for center Bracken Kearns, who took a shot that hit off a body in front of the net and caromed out to Thomas. Thomas swept the puck into the open cage for his fifth goal in his last five games and gave San Antonio a 2-1 advantage.
The Rampage edge was extended to 3-1 by forward David Marshall at the 14:17 mark of the final frame. His third goal of the year came off a snapshot from the left circle that beat Irving to put the Rampage ahead by two goals. Left wing Evan Barlow and center Wacey Rabbit notched helpers on the Marshall score.
Grumet-Morris turned aside 30 of the 31 Heat shots he faced for his second win in two games with the Rampage this season. Irving made 16 stops on 19 San Antonio shots in the Abbotsford loss.
The Rampage (9-11-0-0) conclude a seven-game road trip with a visit to Oklahoma City to play the Barons on Friday. Puck drop is set for 7:00 p.m. (CST) at the Cox Convention Center.
