SAN ANTONIO (April 14, 2013) – Rookie Jared Gomes extended his point-scoring streak to three games, but the Texas Stars (42-20-5-6) tallied five goals in the span of 10:55 en route to a 8-2 victory over the San Antonio Rampage (29-36-2-6) on Sunday afternoon at AT&T Center in front of 7,673 fans.

The defeat dropped the Rampage to 2-9-0-0 against their I-35 rivals on the season. The eight goals surrendered by San Antonio was the most given up by the club since Oct. 18, 2008 at Houston.

Forward Jack Combs lit the lamp for the Rampage in the first period, marking his 14th point (nine goals, five assists) in his first 15 games in the Silver and Black since being acquired from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers on March 15. With his goal in the second period, Gomes is now on a three-game point scoring streak (two goals, one assist).

For the fifth-straight game the Rampage surrendered the first goal. Texas forward Reilly Smith lit the lamp at 10:13 of the first period with a wrist shot that beat Rampage netminder Dov Grumet-Morris blocker side. When scoring first, Texas owned a 21-4-0-5 record entering the game.

Combs tied the game at 1-1 at 16:11 of the first period when he charged the net down low and pulled a smooth forehand-to-backhand move before depositing the puck into the back of the net. Jon Rheault and Scott Timmins collected assists on the goal.

However, only 1:15 later, the Stars had a 3-on-2 odd man rush, and after two bang-bang passes, Colton  Sceviour fired the puck in the net. With the goal, Sceviour has four goals and seven assists in nine games against the Rampage this season.

The Stars cashed in again 33 seconds later when Mike Hedden found a rebound at the bottom of the right circle and took a quick shot past Grumet-Morris before he was able to recover from the initial shot.

Texas tallied three-straight goals to open the second period. Travis Morin extended the Stars’ lead at 2:33 of the second period and Scott Glennie followed suit at 6:07 of the middle frame. Foster entered the game in relief of Grumet-Morris after the Rampage netminder had surrendered five goals.

Justin Dowling lit the lamp at 8:31 of the second period with a deflection in front of the net before Gomes scored on a slap shot from the left boards to make it a 6-2 game. Dowling cashed in again to wrap up the scoring in the second period on a breakaway after sneaking behind the Rampage defense at the blueline. San Antonio trailed Texas, 7-2, after 40 minutes of action.

Hedden scored the lone goal of the third period, his second of the game, at 11:36 of the final frame to wrap up the scoring on the afternoon.Grumet-Morris stopped 12 of the 17 shots he faced before Foster entered the game in his relief. Foster turned aside 12-of-15 shots fired his way.

Texas finished the game 1-for-3 with the man advantage and has now recorded a power-play goal in five-straight games against the Rampage (8-for-23). San Antonio was 0-for-1 on the power play on the night.
