The San Antonio Rampage continued their hot play over the weekend, taking two of three games from the Texas Stars (8-8-2) with two of three games played at the friendly confines of the AT&T Center.
Here is a quick weekend recap of each game went:
Friday, November 23: RAMPAGE 4, Texas 1
The Rampage became the Los Chimuelos de San Antonio for the second time this season on Friday as they earned a 4-1 win over the Stars in front of 6,253 fans at the AT&T Center.
“We’re on the same page unlike the beginning of the season,” Rampage coach Drew Bannister said. “We’re easy to play with and hard to play against.”
Saturday, November 24: RAMPAGE 4, Texas 3
The Rampage went to Austin and took care of business, winning 4-3. The victory was their fifth straight win overall and second of the weekend against their in-state rivals.
Adam Musil, Nolan Stevens, Tyler Wotherspoon, and Austin Poganski each had goals in the win as Ville Husso picked up the win.
Sunday, November 25: RAMPAGE 3, Texas 7
Things did not go San Antonio’s way as they fell 7-3 to the Stars at the AT&T Center on Sunday. The game saw a massive brawl and led to Jordan Binnington’s ejection from the game.
Jordan Kyrou, Jordan Nolan, and Chris Butler all scored goals for the Rampage in the loss. But San Antonio’s defense was not there as they gave up a whopping seven goals on the afternoon.
Following the seventh Texas goal, Binnington took a two-handed swing to the legs of Joel L’Esperance as a massive brawl ensued. The goaltender would be given a game misconduct and be ejected from the game.
