Everett took the first lead of the night when Connor Dewar netted a rebound goal on their 17th shot of the night, assisted by Martin Fasko-Rudas at 17:44. Silvertips out shot the Americans 17-3 through the first twenty minutes.

The score held at 1-0 until Dewar added his second of the night at 6:54 third period. Max Patterson added another extending Everett’s lead to three at 12:34. Americans captain Nolan Yaremko responded four seconds later putting Tri-City on the board.

Everett added three more goals late in the third period including an empty net and power play goal.
