SAN ANTONIO, TX (Nov. 8, 2019) – Daniel Carr’s shorthanded goal in the second period held up as the game-winner on Friday night at the AT&T Center, pacing the Milwaukee Admirals (7-3-3) to a 3-1 win over the San Antonio Rampage (6-3-3).

With the score tied 1-1 in the second period and the Rampage on the power play, Cole Schneider found Carr streaking through the neutral zone for a shorthanded breakaway goal, Carr’s fifth goal of the season to give the Admirals a 2-1 lead.
