The San Antonio Rampage defeated the Oklahoma City Barons 4-3 in overtime, pulling them one point behind OKC for the division lead.

The San Antonio Rampage are in a unique spot, they trailed the Oklahoma City Barons by two points for the division lead. A regulation win tonight would have put them in a tie in points, but the Silver and Black would need extra time to squeak out the victory.

Blake Parlett netted the game-winning goal as the Rampage (37-20-5-1) defeated the Barons (37-19-4-3) in overtime 4-3 in front of 2,758 inside the Cox Convention Center on Friday evening.

San Antonio got the scoring started when Corban Knight beat Oklahoma City goaltender Laurent Brossoit 1:57 after the puck drop to put the visitors up 1-0. The Barons tied the game over six minutes later when Mitch Moroz sent a backhand shot past Rampage netminder Michael Houser to knot the score at a goal apiece. Jordan Oesterle gave the Barons the lead when he put home a rebound past Houser to put Oklahoma City up 2-1. Wade Megan tied the game at 16:29 of the first period as we headed to the second period all even 2-2.


Oklahoma City was awarded a power play, but it would be the Silver and Black that converted. Brett Olson skated down ice and got a pass off to Quinton Howden, who buried the puck past Brossoit 57 seconds into the middle frame to put the Rampage up 3-2 going into the third period.

The Barons took advantage of a power play chance when Joshua Winquist put the puck past Houser’s arm at 6:55 of the final frame to tie the game at 3-3 and force overtime.

In the extra period, Parlett tallied his seventh goal of the season to lift the Rampage to a 4-3 win just 2:06 into the overtime period.

Houser made 22-of-25 saves for the win, while Brossoit stopped 31 of 35 San Antonio shots. Oklahoma City finished 1-for-3 on the power play, while the Silver and Black did not convert on their lone attempt of the game.

The Rampage will return home to face the Hamilton Bulldogs to continue their three-in-three tomorrow evening at 7 p.m. inside the AT&T Center.
