BARONS FALL TO SAN ANTONIO 2-0
By Carter Baum,
The Oklahoma City Barons faced the San Antonio Rampage for the second of 12 meeting this season on Sunday afternoon at the AT&T Center in San Antonio. The Barons fell to the Rampage 2-0.
Each team went 0 for 2 on the power play in the first period and the game remained scoreless after 20 minutes.
Colten Teubert took an interference minor midway through the second and San Antonio took the lead with 8:45 left in the period on the power play. Alex Petrovic scored his first goal of the season off of a cross-ice feed from John McFarland.
The Barons had a chance to even the score on the power play late in the middle frame, but could not convert on the holding penalty to San Antonio’s Scott Timmins with 4:33 left.
Oklahoma City had two more power-play opportunities in the third period. James Wright took a hooking penalty just 24 seconds into the period and Alex Petrovic was called for boarding with 10:37 left in the third. The Barons failed to capitalize with either man advantage.
San Antonio added their second power-play goal of the afternoon off of a Martin Marincin hooking penalty with just under four minutes remaining in the game. Colby Robak scored from McFarland and Tyson Strachan with 2:17 left in the game.
The Barons pulled goaltender Olivier Roy with over a minute remaining to try and get on the board, but the Rampage held on to win 2-0.
Rookie Justin Schultz saw his AHL-leading nine-game point streak come to an end in the Barons loss. Goaltender Olivier Roy stopped 22 of the 24 shots he saw. His record falls to 2-2-0 on the season.
Oklahoma City outshot the Rampage 27-24, but went 0 for 5 on the power play while San Antonio went 2 for 4 with the man advantage.
The Barons travel to Abbottsford for games on Friday and Saturday night before returning home to take on the Toronto Marlies on Tuesday Nov. 13 at 10:35 a.m. at the Cox Convention Center in a rematch of last season’s Western Conference Final.
