Final: Oklahoma State 13, Texas 10 (OT)

Stars hold on to defeat Rampage


The Texas Stars stayed one step ahead of the San Antonio Rampage all night and ended up winning 4-3 at the H-E-B Center at Cedar Park on Wednesday night.

The game was the first of three the teams will compete in through Saturday. It also marked the 599th career head coaching win for Derek Laxdal.

Justin Peters got the win in net for the Stars (33-36-1-4), making 24 saves and not allowing a tying goal in the last 13:47 of the game. He even assisted on a goal late in the second period.

The teams went back-and-forth for most of the night until rookie Denis Gurianov gave the Stars a two-goal lead in the final period.

Gemel Smith scored and assisted on a goal in the game. His goal tied the game in the first period after Rocco Grimaldi gave the Rampage an early lead with his 30th goal of the season.

Smith assisted on the next Stars goal, helping Matt Mangene give Texas its first lead of the night on a power play goal.

Chris Bigras tied the game once again at 2-2 when he cashed in on a power play for San Antonio (26-41-5-2) with less than five minutes left the middle frame.

Not a minute later, Cole Ully put Texas back on top with the help of Mark McNeill and Peters. It was McNeill’s 29th assist on the year and the second for the Texas goaltender.

After Gurianov gave the Stars a two-goal cushion, Reid Petryk pulled the Rampage to within a goal with under 14 minutes left to play.

Texas next travels to San Antonio on Friday for a 7:30 p.m. start.
