TCH: Americans knock off Portland

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

PORTLAND — Parker Bowles scored on a breakaway with 26.6 seconds remaining to lead the Tri-City Americans to a 3-2 victory over the Portland Winterhawks on Wednesday night at the Moda Center.

The Americans (11-8-0-2, 24 points), who got 24 saves from rookie Evan Sarthou, have points in seven consecutive games.

The Winterhawks (14-4-0-1, 29 points), who were ranked No. 3 in this week’s CHL poll, had won 11 games in a row. Portland has just two regulation losses at home — both to Tri-City.

“It was a really good game for us start to finish,” said Americans coach Jim Hiller. “This is a tough building to play in. It’s nice to beat them any time, but you have to play well to do that and we did.”

Bowles’ goal came at the end of a long shift. Brian Williams was able to send the puck out of the zone and Bowles headed up ice all alone, and beating Brendan Burke for his third goal of the season.
