Rampage Split Weekend, Fall to Texas

Box Score | Game Notes

SAN ANTONIO (December 15, 2013) – Garrett Wilson made history and Greg Rallo notched his 100th point in a Rampage uniform, but the San Antonio Rampage (11-15-0-2) dropped a 5-2 decision to the Texas Stars (16-8-2-2) tonight in front of a crowd of 5,210 at the AT&T Center.
Rallo scored his seventh of the year, marking his 100th point while a member of the Rampage, while Garrett Wilson’s seventh came within five seconds of the start of the third period, setting a Rampage franchise record.

Rallo’s goal extended his point streak to three games (two goals, two assists). Drew Shore’s solo assist on Wilson’s tally extended his point streak to three games, as well (five assists).
Michael Houser stopped 27-of-31 in his second-straight start for the Silver and Black, marking his fifth start in six days. The Rampage outshot Texas, 37-32 on the night.
Despite a sluggish start to the game by both teams, Texas quickly found their offense, drawing first blood at 6:43 of the opening frame. Scott Glennie caught the Rampage out of position and barreled into the zone, drilling one past Houser to put the Stars up, 1-0.
Texas got the game’s first power play with 5:51 left in the first, and the league’s best power play cashed in to take a 2-0 lead. Stars captain Maxime Fortunus fed a perfect pass from the blueline, catching Chris Mueller, who roofed it over Houser’s shoulder to give the Stars a two-goal lead at 15:27 of the first. The lead would carry the teams into the first intermission.
The Rampage opened the second with momentum, killing off two consecutive penalties. But Texas tilted the ice, extending their lead to three just past the midway point of the period. Brendan Ranford fired a shot in from the circles, and while Houser deflected the original shot, Curtis McKenzie was waiting, and the Stars winger buried it to open up a three-goal lead.
The Silver and Black got their first chance with the extra man shortly thereafter. Although they were unable to convert, they made a dent on the scoresheet only seconds later. Defenseman Zack Miskovic put a shot on net and Rallo tapped it home with 4:25 remaining, effectively cutting the Stars’ lead by two, making it 3-1.
The goal marked his 100th point as a member of the Rampage, making him just the fifth player to do so in the franchise’s history.
Wilson made it a one-goal game just five seconds into the third when he let one fly from the left circle..
Texas got their two-goal lead back at 17:37 of the third, when Mike Hedden tucked a rebound shortside past Houser to make it 4-2. The Rampage put the extra skater on moments later, but McKenzie netted his second of the game when he found the empty net with 52 seconds left in regulation.
San Antonio went 0-for-2 on the power play, while Texas cashed in once, going 1-for-5.
The Rampage travel to Cedar Park on Wednesday to faceoff again against the Stars, before kicking off a two-game road trip against Milwaukee (Dec. 20) and Iowa (Dec. 21).
