Americans Fall to Winterhawks in Second Pre-Season Game

John Allen

Everett, WA – The Tri-City Americans (0-2) hung tough with the defending WHL Champions, but a slow start and late penalty troubles led to the team’s second straight loss, as it dropped Saturday’s pre-season contest 7-4 against the Portland Winterhawks (2-0).

The Winterhawks grabbed the early lead when an Alex Shoenborn backhand found the back of the net just 1:09 into the game. Portland would extend its lead just over five-minutes later, when Adam Rossignol scored to make it 2-0 Winterhawks. Brian Williams then pulled the Americans to within one goal for the first time at 12:28 of the first period.

In total, Tri-City was within one goal of the Winterhawks on three different occasions Saturday, but were unable to hold Portland off the scoreboard long enough to pull even.

After a third period shorthanded goal by Jessey Astles, the Americans surrendered three consecutive power play goals, digging themselves into a 7-3 hole. A late power play goal of by Philip Tot pulled Tri-City back to 7-4, but that was as close as the Americans would get.  

Troy Trombley started the game for the Americans, playing the first 29:18 of the game and making 14 saves on the day before giving way to Evan Sarthou. Sarthou, the Black Diamond, Washington native made 12 saves in relief.

The Americans will conclude their tournament schedule tomorrow, September 1 at 11:30 a.m., when they take on the Victoria Royals at Comcast Arena in Everett.
