Americans Box Score

Allen, Texas – The Allen Americans, ECHL affiliate of the Ottawa Senators (NHL), dropped their final road game of the season on Friday night 3-1 to the Wichita Thunder, in front of a packed house of 12,459 in Wichita.

The Americans offense was held to one goal, and just one in the last two games. Wichita’s goaltender Trevor Gorsuch was great between the pipes stopping 40 of 41 shots. Luke Peressini shined as well, stopping 27 of 29 Thunder shots.

The Americans lone goal game late in the opening period as former Thunder forward Stefan Fournier, took a pass from Aidan Brown beating Trevor Gorsuch to cut the lead to 2-1. That would be the last of the scoring until late in the third when Wichita sealed the win with an empty net goal.

The number two ranked power play struggled tonight going 0-for-5 with the man advantage. Wichita went 1-for-2. The Americans outshot Wichita 41-29.

With the loss, the Americans need one point tomorrow night against the Thunder to clinch second place. Less than 10 tickets remain for the game. Wichita went 1-for-2.

Americans Postgame Quotes:

Chad Costello: “I’m proud of our guys. We played hard. Their goalie played well and so did Peressini. We will be ready to go on Saturday night.”
