Silvertips fall to rival Seattle

Everett struggles to kill penalties in a 4-3 road loss.

KENT — Penalty kill woes hampered the Silvertips on Saturday night, as the Seattle Thunderbirds edged the Silvertips, 4-3, at the ShoWare Center.

Jeri Keltie-Leon scored 1 minute, 2 seconds into the third period to spot the Thunderbirds a two-goal lead.

That goal proved to be crucial for Seattle, as Jackson Berezowski’s power-play goal at 13:10 cut the lead to one, but the Silvertips couldn’t find the equalizer in the final 6:50 of play.

The Silvertips (26-10-2-1) led 2-1 after the first 20 minutes thanks to goals from Cole Fonstad and Gage Goncalves, but Seattle (16-20-2-1) roared back in the second with an equalizing goal from former Silvertip Max Patterson and a power-play goal from Connor Bruggen-Cate.

The Thunderbirds were 2-of-3 on the man advantage, not counting Patterson’s goal, which came one second after a power play. Everett was 1-for-3 on the power play.

Roddy Ross stopped 34 shots for the Thunderbirds. Dustin Wolf made 19 saves for the Silvertips.
