San Antonio Rampage left wing Ryan Hollweg scored the lone goal for the Rampage in a 3-1 loss to the Houston Aeros Sunday evening at the Toyota Center. The Rampage own a 25-14-1-0 record good for 51 points and third place in the West Division standings.

Rampage right wing Matt Watkins extended his point streak to six games with an assist on the night while defenseman Maxim Goncharov tallied his fourth consecutive assist to extend his assist streak to three games.

The Rampage opened the scoring at the 16:27 mark of the first period on a power-play goal by Hollweg.  Just 24 seconds into San Antonio’s first power-play opportunity of the game, Maxim Goncharov sent a shot from the left wall that was blocked by Aeros netminder Matt Hackett out in front and picked up by Watkins who tipped it to Hollweg at the right corner of the crease and into the open net.

The Aeros evened the score at 1-1 with just over a minute remaining in the opening frame when Jed Ortmeyer skated the puck into the Rampage zone along the left wing boards and sent a cross-ice pass to Kris Fredheim at the right post to beat San Antonio goalie Al Montoya high glove side.

Houston took a 2-1 advantage with 5:47 remaining in the final period on Jean-Michel Daoust’s seventh goal of the season. Robbie Earl sent a cross-ice pass to Chad Rau at the left faceoff dot who then fed it to Daoust at the right post to beat Montoya back door.

With 1:03 remaining in regulation, Rampage head coach Ray Edwards pulled Montoya in favor of an extra attacker, however, San Antonio right wing Brett MacLean was called for elbowing 19 seconds later giving Houston a power-play opportunity.

 With 19 seconds remaining in regulation the Rampage lost the puck at the blue line allowing Houston left wing Colton Gillies to capitalize on the power play and deposit the puck into the empty net to seal the Aeros victory at 3-1.

Montoya turned away 30 of 32 Aeros shots he faced while Hackett stopped 28 of 29 Rampage shot attempts for his ninth win of the season.

The Rampage return home on Thursday to host the Grand Rapids Griffins at 7 p.m. at the AT&T Center.
