Steelheads Finish Road Trip With 3-1 Loss to Americans

ALLEN, Texas – The Idaho Steelheads (8-4-4) fall 3-1 in the final game of the road trip against the Allen Americans (10-3-1) on Sunday afternoon from Allen Event Center. The Steelheads finished with a 3-3-2 record during their eight-game road swing and points in 10 of 13 games away from home in their first 16 total games.

The Steelheads and Americans played a majority of the first period in a neutral zone chess match, but one turnover led to the opening and lone goal in the first frame. Americans forward Alex Guptill found the puck off a turnover in the right circle, and after a couple efforts toward the net found the stab to slide it across the line to take that 1-0 edge.

The Americans posted their second goal of the game and the lone tally in the second period. At 8:03, Americans defenseman Alex Breton got a lane low in the left circle and placed his shot top shelf to double the advantage, 2-0.

In the third period, the Americans tacked on a third tally thanks to forward Jordan Topping at 5:19 to triple the lead, 3-0. The Steelheads showed life on their only power play of the game coming late at 17:59 when forward Will Merchant was opened in the middle of the slot for a one-time shot to break up the shutout bid, 3-1. However, the Steelheads could not find another tally and finished with a loss.

Americans netminder Zack Sawchenko (3-1-0) halted 28 of 29 shots in the win, while Steelheads goaltender Tomas Sholl (6-2-3) denied 31 of 34 shots in the loss.
