KENNEWICK – Short-handed and having little to play for, the Everett Silvertips were no match for a motivated Tri-City Americans team.

Kruise Reddick scored two goals, including the game-winner early in the third period, and the Silvertips fell 5-3 to the Americans on Saturday night.

Taylor Procyshen, Joel Broda and Roman Teslyuk also scored for Tri-City (42-23-1-1) and Carey Price made 17 saves in goal for the Americans.

Lukas Vartovnik, Shane Harper and Dan Gendur scored for Everett (53-13-1-2), with David Reekie finishing with 31 saves.

Everett had nothing to play for, having clinched the WHL regular season title the previous night. The Tips took the opportunity to rest forwards Peter Mueller and Moises Gutierrez, who joined injured forwards Jesse Smyke (head) and Brennan Sonne (spleen), as well as defenseman Taylor Ellington (neck). Right wing Brandon Campos and defenseman Graham Potuer both took knocks and didn’t finish the game, leaving the Tips three skaters short of a full lineup.

Meanwhile, the Americans were back at full strength with the return of leading scorer Colton Yellow Horn from a leg injury, and Tri-City is still frantically trying to hold off Seattle for second place in the U.S. Division.

Nonetheless, Everett hung tough until the third period. Gendur scored 3 minutes, 32 seconds into the third, putting the puck into an open net when Zach Hamill’s attempted pass deflected off a skate, to tie the score at 3-3.

However, Reddick gave Tri-City the lead for good just 59 seconds later with a shot in transition that beat Reekie. Reddick added an insurance goal on a rebound at 10:25.

Everett managed just three shots on goal in the first period, but two of those went in the net as the Tips took a 2-1 lead.
