The Tulsa Rampage closed out the final game of the series against the Texas Junior Brahmas with a 5-2 victory on Sunday.
Midway through the first period defenseman Elliott Langford, who hails from Anchorage Alaska, tallied his first goal of the season on an assist from Mario Dalesandro and Shane Khalaf. Another Rampage defenseman, Matt Boente closed out the period with an unassisted power play goal to give the Tulsa team a two goal lead that would last throughout the second period as well.
Perhaps assuming a win, the Rampage came into the third with less intensity than they had demonstrated in the first two periods and the Brahmas were quick to capitalize. Just three minutes into the frame, Ryan Dietl and Curtis Kort, scored even strength goals within 12 seconds of each other to secure a tie. After watching and experiencing the results of the team’s defensive breakdown, Rampage goaltender Chris Dylewski gathered his senses and shut the Brahmas down. DeForest Wisconsin native Mitch Suchomel scored what would be the game winner on an assist from linemates Jeff Lundberg and Bobby Watson. Mario Dalesandro added to his points for the night by scoring a 4 on 4 goal midway through the period and with the period coming to a close, Bobby Watson and Jeff Lundberg combined to add the final goal for the Rampage.
Goaltender Chris Dylewski faced 29 shots on the night, stopping 27 in the 5-2 win.
