Tulsa Rampage Post Double Digit Victory in the Final Game of the Series
Tulsa scored early and often in the final game against the New Mexico Renegades.  While the Tulsa player's did their job, goaltender Hayden Capuozzo also posted impressive stats, stopping all 33 of the shots he faced on the night for his second shut out of the weekend.

New Jersey native Antonio Baccari opened the scoring with an even strength goal assisted by line mates Mario Dalesandro and James Ryerse.  Baccari followed his even strength goal just two minutes later with a power play goal for the Rampage, assisted by Alex Betts. Relative newcomer, defenseman Tyler Minx closed out the first period with an unassisted even strength goal.  While Tulsa out shot the Renegades by more than double, Capuozzo did hold his own in the 8 shots he faced that period.

Just one minute into the second period, Mario Dalesandro added his second point by assisting Texas native Grady Graham on his even strength goal.  Less than 30 seconds later, the Renegades goaltender seemed to be completed deflated as Shane Khalaf added to the Tulsa side of the scoreboard.  The Renegades battled to try to help out their overwhelmed goaltender, posting virtually an equal number of shots in the second but the floodgates appeared to be open.  Antonio Baccari added an even strength goal to earn his hat trick on the night.  Grady Graham followed with his second on the night.  A power play goal assisted by Dalesandro who had 3 points on the night.  Sean Heidrick closed out the second with an even strength goal causing the battle weary Renegades to leave the ice facing an 8 goal deficit.

The third period resulted in a flurry of activity for Tulsa's Hayden Capuozzo who held strong between the pipes as he faced a total of 14 shots in that period.  New Mexico's goaltender also faced 14 shots during the third but unlike Capuozzo wasn't able to stop them all.  Assistant Captain Shane Khalaf added a power play goal in the early half of the period while Sean Heidrick added an even strength goal in the last half to bring the final score to 10-0. 

The Rampage now advance to the play offs where they will take on El Paso in a best of three series.
