The San Antonio Rampage knew their two-game series against the defending champions would not be easy. However, when you have a player like Ben Street on your team – you have an extra weapon.

Street was a nightmare for the Ontario Reign all weekend as he lifted the Rampage to a 2-1 overtime win over the Reign on Halloween night in front of 6,135 fans inside Citizens Business Bank Arena on Saturday.

Andrew Agozzino returned to the lineup for San Antonio and quickly made an impact. Agozzino scored just 24 seconds into the game, beating Ontario netminder Ray Emery to give the Rampage the 1-0 lead going into the second intermission.


Neither team could light the lamp in the second period, despite Ontario outshooting the Rampage 21-4. The Reign pulled their goaltender and tied the game when Kevin Gravel beat San Antonio goaltender Calvin Pickard to force overtime.

With just over a minute to go in the extra period, Street took the pass from Agozzino to beat Emery. The goal was Street’s second game winner of the weekend as the Rampage walked away with a 2-1 win.

The victory gives San Antonio their best record of six games in franchise history. The team had never gone six games without a regulation loss.

Pickard finished with 37 saves on 38 shots and Emery made 25 saves on 28 San Antonio shots. The Rampage were outshot 37-28 for the game and both teams finished 1-for-4 with the man advantage.

The Rampage are now 5-0-1-0 (11 points) on the season and will return to the ice next Tuesday when they travel to San Diego to face the Gulls at 9:05 p.m. inside Valley View Casino Center.
