Tri-City Americans

Ams drops third straight

SPOKANE -- Kyle Beach scored at the 4:11 mark of overtime to lead the Spokane Chiefs to a 4-3 win over the Tri-City Americans on Saturday night at Spokane Arena.

It was the Americans' (39-15-1-2, 81 points) third straight loss and first overtime loss of the season.

Tri-City, coming off a 6-3 loss to Chilliwack on Friday night, tied the game on a Johnny Lazo goal with three seconds left in the third period to send the game to overtime.

The Americans played without Mike Brown, who is facing supplemental discipline by the WHL for a major boarding penalty Friday against Chilliwack.
