SAN ANTONIO (March 6, 2018) – The San Antonio Rampage (27-24-9-0) fell to the Chicago Wolves (32-18-6-2) 5-2 on Tuesday at the AT&T Center.
The Silver and Black opened the scoring for the second consecutive game at 4:08 of the first period when Adam Musil’s shot attempt was redirected to Andrew Agozzino, who fired the puck into the open net.

Beau Bennett gave the Wolves the lead 78 seconds later after he forced a turnover at mid-ice and beat netminder Ville Husso with a wrister from the slot.

The Wolves answered with a goal of their own 32 seconds later after Tobias Lindberg and Bennett found themselves on a 2-on-1 breakaway, allowing Lindberg to record his ninth of the season.
Chicago added its fifth of the evening on a 5-on-3 power-play opportunity at the 8:50 mark of the final frame when Bennett finished a backdoor pass from Brandon Pirri, securing a 5-2 Wolves victory.
