TCH: Americans top Giants 2-1 in overtime

By Annie Fowler | Tri-City Herald

Evan Sarthou leaned against the boards between the end of regulation and the start of overtime.

The Tri-City Americans rookie goaltender had earned a moment to himself after stopping 36 shots through 60 minutes of play.

“I was thinking I had to make the saves so the guys could get the win,” Sarthou said.

Sarthou made a big save in overtime, then watched as Parker Bowles scored the game-winner at the other end at 1:32 to give the Americans a hard-fought win over the Vancouver Giants before a Tuesday night crowd of 4,100 at Toyota Center.

“(Vancouver) played really well and Sarts played really well,” said Tri-City coach Jim Hiller, whose team has won six in a row at home. “Sarts has done this enough times. That’s who you are, it’s not beginner’s luck.”

Bowles had taken the puck into Vancouver’s end just seconds before he scored, but he lost an edge and fell down. He had just gotten up and was heading into the neutral zone when Lucas Nickles gave him the puck.
