Wenatchee survives Coulee Region comeback, wins 3-1

Schwan SR-4    Sat, Sep 21, 2013

The Coulee Region Chill almost clawed their way back from a three-goal deficit, but the Wenatchee Wild managed to pull out a 3-1 win in the end.

Wenatchee led by three goals at one point and ended with the victory. The largest advantage in the game came when the Wild's Chris Koukis's scored at 8:54 in the second period to put Wenatchee up 3-0.

Parker Tuomie was all over the ice for the Wild, as he registered two goals in the win. Tuomie scored short handed at 12:01 into the first period to make the score 1-0 Wenatchee and again while 6:46 into the second to make the score 2-0 Wenatchee.

Wenatchee was led by goalie Chase Perry, who finished with 29 saves while allowing one goal. Despite the solid performance, Perry will actually see his goals against average rise, as it stood at 0.96 entering the contest.

The Wild put up an impenetrable defensive front on the penalty kill, and did not allow Coulee Region to score on any of its eight power plays. Wenatchee's offense was helped by the efforts of its defensemen, who managed to put 15 shots on net during the game. The 31 shots that the Wild put on net surpassed Wenatchee's average of 27.0 shots per game this season.

In addition, Wenatchee received assists from Troy Loggins, Corey Sikich, Trey Bradley, River Rymsha, and Mike Coyne, who each chipped in one.

The Chill's penalty kill was spotless, allowing no goals on five Wenatchee power plays. Coulee Region's offense was clicking better than usual and put 30 shots on goal during the game, better than the 25.0 shots per game it averages.

The Chill were led by Jake Zeleznikar, who scored the team's only goal. Zeleznikar scored 18:38 into the second period to make the score 3-1 Wenatchee. Jesse Tredinnick assisted on the tally.

The Wild incurred 16 minutes in penalty time with eight minors. Blake Cates took the loss and made 14 saves before being replaced by Adam Carlson who made 14 saves. Coulee Region incurred 10 minutes in penalty time with five minors.
