Last night, the San Antonio Rampage opened their season to the Texas Stars in San Antonio.  Unfortunately, they lost 2-1, but we know the season is a long one.  They currently are in 4th place in the South Division of the American Hockey Leagues’ Western Conference.

In Saturday’s game, the Rampage scored on a shot by #36 – Drew Shore, and was assisted by #5 – Tyson Strachan (who is an Assistant Captain) and #26 – Jon Rheault, in the 3rd period.  Shots on goal for were 19, and Drew Shore was named 3rd Star of the game.

In Sunday’s victory, scores were achieved by #14 – Jean-Francois Jacques in the 1st period.  He was assisted was #25 – Colby Robak, and #3 – Alex Petrovic.  In  the 2nd period, an assisted goal occurred by Assistant Captain, Greg Rallo (who wears #27).  The 3rd period goal, and proving to be the game winner was by #25 – Colby Robak, and he was assisted by #17 – Casey Wellman.  Number 26 – Jon Rheault (who scored in Saturday’s game) had an assist in this game winning goal.

First Star of the night belonged to the Rampage’s own Colby Robak, and Second Star belonged to #30 – Jacob Markstrom.

    That last goal by Colby Robak was beautifully setup by Casey Wellman. He put the puck exactly where Robak was going to cross the blue line, and he took the shot without hesitating. All you could hear after that shot was “oooohhhh”. The big problem Saturday was there was a lot of perimeter play, but not enough North-South play. Looks like coach corrected that, and they were skating hard to the net with more SOGs on Sunday. It definitely payed off with the win :)
