WINNIPEG, Man. - The San Antonio Rampage (16-12-2-0) fell short to the Manitoba Moose (23-5-1-2) 3-1 on Friday at the Bell MTS Place.

Brendan Lemieux opened the scoring with an unassisted power-play goal 9:10 into the opening frame when he intercepted a Rampage pass in the slot and slipped the puck past goaltender Spencer Martin. Nearly four minutes later, Mason Appleton collected a rebounding puck in front of the net and lit the lamp at 13:04 for Manitoba's second marker of the evening.

The second period fell scoreless until Chris Butler connected on a shot from the point with 65 seconds remaining in the frame. Manitoba's Michael Hutchinson was screened on the play by Julien Nantel as Butler found the back of the cage for his third goal in the last five games.

San Antonio was held scoreless in the final 20 minutes of play as Hutchinson turned aside all 11 Rampage shots, while Appleton collected an empty-net goal with 23 seconds remaining in regulation.
