Winterhawks Score Four in Third Period for 4-1 Preseason Win Over Everett


The Portland Winterhawks played their third preseason game in as many days in Everett Sunday, and used a big third period to defeat the Silvertips 4-1. Their victory has them at 3-0 after the first weekend of preseason play.

After a scoreless first period, Everett opened the scoring 6:53 into the second on a goal by Carter Brown as they took a 1-0 lead into the third.

But from there it was all Portland, as the Hawks exploded for four goals in the third period.

Portland broke through early in the third with a pair of goals just 22 seconds apart. First it was Ryan Hughes scoring off a wrist shot at 5:44, followed quickly on the ensuing shift by Colton Veloso tucking in a wraparound to give Portland a 2-1 lead.

The Hawks’ third period rally continued at 13:25 when defenseman Caleb Jones ripped a wrist shot past Everett netminder Lasse Petersen to push the lead to 3-1. Finally, Hughes struck for his second of the period with under a minute to go to put a bow on the 4-1 victory over the Silvertips.

The Hawks will continue preseason play with three games this week in Kennewick, Washington, beginning Thursday at 3 p.m. when they take on the Silvertips once again. The regular season begins September 24 when Portland hosts the Seattle Thunderbirds at7 p.m. in the Moda Center.
