ALLEN, Texas – The Idaho Steelheads (29-22-3) controlled possession but couldn’t find the bounces in a 3-1 loss to the Allen Americans (22-22-7) on Friday night from Credit Union of Texas Event Center.THE GAME’S STORYThe Steelheads started the contest with a dominating first period of possession, but the Americans took advantage of a small opening to take the first tally of the night. Steelheads defenseman Michael Prapavessis (10:44 1st) tallied from the blue line in the next possession succession to tie the game, 1-1. A controversial too-many men penalty called on the Steelheads led to the Americans capitalizing off an Idaho skate from the left post to make the difference, and a late break by the Americans added an insurance tally in the 3-1 result.ICCU 3 STARS OF THE GAME1.
