WINNIPEG – The San Antonio Rampage fell to the Manitoba Moose (8-8-0) in a pair of games at the MTS Centre over the weekend. San Antonio took one of a possible four points and are now 0-2-2 in their last four games.

Here’s our weekend recap:

Friday: Rampage 1, Manitoba 2 (OT)

The Rampage fell 2-1 in overtime, taking home their lone point from the weekend.


After a scoreless first period, Manitoba opened the scoring in the second off Andrei Chibisov’s third goal of the season at 16:56. San Antonio answered back just 1:29 later when Nathan Walker deposited his team-leading ninth goal of the season to knot the score up 1-1.

Neither team found the back of the net in the final frame, so the game went into overtime. In the extra frame, Seth Griffith put the game-winner for Manitoba.

Moose netminder Mikhail Berdin made 45 saves in the win, while Ville Husso stopped 24 shots in the loss.

San Antonio is now 0-5 on the season in games past regulation.

Sunday: Rampage 2, Moose 5

The Rampage closed out the weekend with a 5-2 loss to the Moose as Manitoba scored three unanswered goals to grab the win.

Mike Vecchione opened the scoring in the second period when he let rip a wrist shot past Berdin from the left circle at 3:52. San Antonio turned the puck over, leading to a Manitoba goal from Cole Maier, the first of two on the day for him. Jordan Kyrou gave San Antonio the lead right back just 21 seconds later after a lucky bounce saw the puck land in front of him for the easy goal. The Moose scored as time expired, making it 2-2 after 40 minutes.

From there, it was all Moose. Maier gave Manitoba the lead for good as he slammed home a rebound in the third period. Kristian Vesalainen gave the home side a cushion at 13:24, netting his third of the season and Manitoba added an empty-net goal 16:46 of the third period to finalize the scoring.

San Antonio is now 0-3-2 over their last five games and 0-12-1 in their last 13 visits to Bell MTS Place.
