SAN ANTONIO – The San Antonio Rampage fell 5-1 to the Bakersfield Condors (9-10-2-0) in front of 3,062 fans at the AT&T Center on Tuesday night, continuing their home-stand.
The loss was the fourth in their last five games for San Antonio, who are just 1-3 against Bakersfield through four matchups this season. Reid Petryk scored the lone goal for the Silver and Black on the power play in the second period.
Here is what went good and bad for the Rampage, as well as two standout players: Reid Petryk and Jordan Schmaltz.
- Ville Husso returned from injury after missing the past week or so. Despite not having a solid game in net, it is still good to see him between the pipes.
- Jordan Schmaltz continues to play well.
- San Antonio played well on the power play, going 1-for-3 in the game. However, overall they still continue to struggle.
- San Antonio still continues to commit penalties and it cost them on Tuesday. The Rampage went to the box six times in the game and allowed one Bakersfield power play tally.
- The power play for the Rampage did well Tuesday, but the bigger picture shows something different. Over the past three games, San Antonio has gone 2-for-10 on the man advantage.
Three Standout Players:
Reid Petryk: After having a nice end to the season in 2016-17, Reid Petryk has gotten off to a slow start on both ends of the ice to open 2017-18. However, that changed on Tuesday as he not only scored the puck, but got into it on the defensive end.
Petryk’s goal came in the second period with San Antonio on the power play as he redirected David Warsofsky shot past Bakersfield net minder Eddie Pasquale. The opposite side of the puck saw Petryk get aggressive on defense as he quickly got to lose pucks, blocked shots, and overall played a solid 60 minutes.
Jordan Schmaltz: The St. Louis Blues prospect continues to impress in his first season with San Antonio. On Tuesday, Schmaltz had an assist on Petryk’s goal, his 14th of the season.
The Rampage are now 12-10-1-0 (25 points) on the season and will return to the court on Saturday when they host the Condors at 7 p.m. for Star Wars night.
