Steelheads Slip in Series Finale to Allen, 4-2

ALLEN, Texas The Idaho Steelheads (29-23-3) fell behind and could not climb out in the final game of the season series against the Allen Americans (23-22-7), falling 4-2 on Saturday night from Credit Union of Texas Event Center.THE GAME’S STO­­RYThe Steelheads came out firing again to open the contest and nearly had the first tally of the game within the opening half of the frame. However, a video review called the goal back to keep the road side off the board. In the second period, the Americans struck twice within the first eight minutes to jump out to a 2-0 lead. During a late 4-on-4, Steelheads defenseman Darren Brady (18:18 2nd) ripped a shot from the right circle to cut the lead in half, however the Americans answered on the next shift to spread the lead back to two. In the third period, the Americans tacked on another tally, and despite a late goal by Steelheads forward Frederic Letourneau (18:35 3rd), time ran out in the 4-2 result.ICCU 3 STARS OF THE GAME1.
