Ashton Rome and Rob Dmytruk each tallied goals and Gerald Coleman stopped all 36 shots he saw to lead the Phoenix RoadRunners to a 2-0 win over the Ontario Reign before 4,912 at Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, Calif., in ECHL action Saturday.

The RoadRunners (4-2-1) ambushed Ontario with a 23-shot first period, but it wasn’t until their 23rd shot that they finally put one behind goalie Jeff Zatkoff.

Rome picked up the loose puck in the slot and put a backhand shot over Zatkoff’s shoulder and into the net at 19:45 on the power play for a 1-0 lead.

It would stay that way until early in the third period when Dmytruk beat Zatkoff with a long shot from just inside the blue line off the right-wing boards at 3:58, giving the RoadRunners a 2-0 advantage.

Coleman did the rest, stopping all 22 Ontario (4-3-0) shots in the third period.

Phoenix out-shot Ontario 43-36.

Coleman improved to 2-1-0 with the win.

The RoadRunners went 1-for-7 on the power play while Ontario was 0-8 with the man-advantage.
