CEDAR PARK, Texas – Justin Dowling’s second period goal sent more than 1,300 bears on the ice as part of the Texas Stars annual Teddy Bear Toss event, but the offense for the San Antonio Rampage erupted throughout the night in a 7-1 final on Friday at Cedar Park Center in front of 5,754.
Connor Brickley and Garrett Wilson each scored a pair of goals for the Rampage in the win. Dowling’s goal came at 10:53 of the second from the right circle for his fourth of the season.
