It’s been a while since we’ve brought you some prospects news from the guys down in San Antonio. Since we last wrote, the Rampage have improved in recent weeks and that improved play continued over the weekend as the Silver and Black got a 2-1 overtime win over the Milwaukee Admirals.
The win was the second in the last four games for San Antonio, who also snapped a two-game losing streak.
“It was a good game all around,” Rampage goaltender Jordan Bennington said. “The building was full and I’m happy we got the teddy bears thrown.”
After two scoreless periods, San Antonio finally lit the lamp in the third period. Trevor Smith sent the teddy bears flying on the ice with a goal as he took the pass from Conner Bleackley and beat Milwaukee goaltender Troy Grosenick at 6:32.
Milwaukee evened the score just over five minutes later as Tyler Gaudet‘s shot from the left circle beat Binnington to force overtime.
In the extra frame, Joey LaLeggia was skating in on a breakaway attempt but was hooked from behind. LaLeggia would make the most of his chance as he put the puck between Grosenick’s pads to give San Antonio the 2-1 win.
“I’ve been lucky with teddy bear toss goals,” Smith said. “It was great to get the goal and watch those teddy bears come down.”
In their last 12 games, the Rampage are 7-4-1 and have improved on their offensive side of the ice.
The Rampage will play the Iowa Wild on Friday and Sunday this weekend.
