Rampage get burned in Stockton



The San Antonio Rampage knew their California trip would provide its challenges and their last stop was in Stockton to face the Heat. Sadly, the trip would end on a sour note as the silver and black fell to close out their California adventure.

The Rampage made a game of it early, but would all 6-2 to the Heat in front of 2,818 fans inside Stockton Arena on Wednesday night.

Stockton got two quick goals to make it a two goal game. Derek Grant scored on a backdoor shot, beating Spencer Martin at 7:39 of the opening frame. Just 30 seconds later, the Heat took advantage of a San Antonio turnover when Morgan Klimchuk put the puck into the empty net to make it a 2-0 lead for the home squad.

San Antonio responded with the Heat on the power play at 11:36 when Reid Petryk beat Kevin Poulin for a short-handed tally to make it 2-1 going into the second period.

The Heat added two more goals in the middle frame to widen their lead. First, Freddie Hamilton put home a rebound at 4:40 for a power play tally and Kenny Agostino scored for Stockton nearly five minutes later to make it a 4-1 game. San Antonio answered back when Dennis Everberg banged home a rebound of his own to make it a 4-2 Stockton advantage going into the final period.

Stockton capped the scoring with two goals in the final stanza to seal the win. Aaron Johnson scored at the 10:37 mark on the power play and Hamilton would make it a two goal night six minutes later for a 6-2 final score.

Martin finished the game with 27 saves on 33 shots, while Poulin made 31 of 33 saves for Stockton. The Heat finished 2-for-5 on the power play, while San Antonio was 0-for-5.

The Rampage are now 16-15-7-0 (39 points) on the season and will return to the ice on Friday to begin a nine-game homestand to welcome the Milwaukee Admirals to the AT&T Center for a pair of games.
