RECAP | GROWLERS DOWNED 4-2 BY AMERICANS

Newfoundland Growlers (17-10-2-0) vs Allen Americans (17-15-4-1)Sunday, January 30 – Allen, Texas

OFFICIAL GAME SHEETGame Story

The Newfoundland Growlers showed plenty of fight for the third straight game but ultimately fell 4-2 on Sunday afternoon at Credit Union of Texas Event Center.

Allen opened the scoring midway through the opening period as Tyler Poulsen picked up the puck at speed in the neutral zone, split the Growlers defence and beat Brett Epp in the Newfoundland net to make it 1-0 Americans with 8:38 left in the 1st.

Gordie Green tied things at 1-1 less than a minute later as the Growlers aggressive forecheck paid off. Jeremy McKenna stripped an Americans player in his own end and found Green all alone at the back door who made no mistake in squaring things up ahead of the first intermission.

Jackson Leppard would regain the Americans advantage moments into the middle frame as he beat Epp from a tight angle to give Allen a 2-1 lead with 18:42 left in the 2nd.

The crop of newcomers would continue to prove their worth on Sunday as Zane Schartz ripped one from the top of the circle midway through the second period to tie it up at 2-2. Riley McCourt and Matthew Hobbs picked up assists on the play.

On the brink of the second intermission, Allen would take back the lead as Kris Myllari slotted home following a series of strong saves from Epp. The Americans would go into the third period leading 3-2.

Despite a strong push from the visitors, the Americans would get some insurance as Chad Costello put one into an empty net to make it a 4-2 final in favour of Allen.Quick Hits
