KENNEWICK — Ryan Hofer scored twice and the Everett Silvertips capped a long eight-game road trip with a 4-3 win over the Tri-City Americans on Saturday night.

Caden Zaplinty, Ben Hemmerling and Hofer scored in the first period, and Hofer added his second early in the second period as the Silvertips raced out to a 4-0 lead.

The Americans responded with three unanswered goals from Deagan McMillan, Cash Koch and Tyson Greenway to pull within a score early in the third period.

But the Silvertips held on from there to secure their fourth straight win and a 5-3 road trip, which included six games against the Eastern Conference.

Braden Holt started in goal for Everett (11-5-0-0) and stopped 25 of the 28 shots he faced.

Tomas Suchanek made 22 saves on 26 shots for Tri-City (7-9-0-0).

The Silvertips finally return home with a game against Calgary at 4:05 p.m. on Sunday at Angel of the Winds Arena.
