Tips lose to Tri-City

KENNEWICK — The Everett Silvertips’ recent offensive outburst came to an abrupt end Friday night.

So deadly the previous two games, Everett’s offense was blunted by Tri-City goaltender Chet Pickard, and the Silvertips fell 1-0 to the Americans.

Pickard made 20 saves as Everett (6-5-1-0) was shut out for the third time this season.

Tyler Schmidt scored the game’s lone goal as Tri-City (10-3-0-0) outshot Everett 47-20. The victory was the Americans’ fifth straight.

Shayne Barrie had a busy night, making 46 saves in goal for the Tips, who saw a three-game winning streak come to an end.

Everett came into the game running on all cylinders offensively, scoring 13 goals in the previous two games. But the Americans controlled play for much of the contest, giving Everett’s offense few opportunities.

After an uneventful first period, the action heated up in the second. Both teams had good scoring chances. Tri-City’s Kruise Reddick and Taylor Prochshen both had chances denied by Barrie, and another was thwarted when Tips defenseman Jeff Regier cleared a puck off the goal line. On the other end a Regier shot created havoc in front that the Tips couldn’t convert.

It was Tri-City that finally found the breakthrough on the power play at 14 minutes, 45 seconds of the second. The Americans applied good pressure, with a loose puck ending up on the stick of Schmidt, who scored to make it 1-0.

Everett had a golden opportunity to tie it up with 6:24 remaining in the game when, while short-handed, Shane Harper was hauled down on a breakaway and awarded a penalty shot. However, Pickard denied Harper’s attempt to preserve Tri-City’s lead.
