SAN ANTONIO – The Los Chimuelos de San Antonio saw their losing streak continue as they suffered a 2-1 loss to the San Jose Barracuda (6-1-1) in front of 7,703 fans at the AT&T Center on Friday night.

The loss was eighth straight for San Antonio, who have not won since their 4-0 season opener against the Grand Rapids Griffins. The Rampage changed their identity for one night only as part of a celebration of the city’s Hispanic culture.

“Teams go through this type of adversity,” Rampage center Robby Fabbri. “That’s a tough group of guys in that locker room and I see them getting through it.”


After a scoreless first period, the visiting team was the first to light the lamp. With San Antonio down two men, Francis Perron beat Rampage goaltender Ville Husso at the 5:50 mark of the second period. The goal would stand as the lone marker of the period.

Adam Musil tied the game up 1-1 when he took a pass from Nolan Stevens and beat San Jose netminder Josef Korenar for his second goal of the 2018-19 season. Just over two minutes later, the Barracuda took the lead for good on Matt Fonteyne’s first professional goal.

Husso stopped 19 of 21 shots in the loss.

“We played a solid game but had a bad bounce at the end,” Rampage right wing Sam Blais said. “We just have to keep grinding hard and I’m sure the wins will come.”
