Ams Keep Winning at Home

Posted: Updated:

Kennewick, WA---

     Remember Thanksgiving?  The good food.  Family.  Fun times.  It's also around the time the Americans lost their last home game.  Since November 21st, when the Ams fell to Everett 4-2, Tri-City has ripped off 12 straight wins.  Including yesterday's five nothing victory over Kamloops.  During this win streak, the Ams outscoring opponents 70-20.   

     Head coach Jim Hiller said, "There's definitely an air of confidence in the room when we're playing at home. And that's important. You need to have that swagger... That confidence and then you got to mix in respect for the opponent and go out and play hard... And usually that leads to a pretty good outcome. We just got our game together more than anything... Because of that being at home... And the great advantage that we have... We've been playing pretty well and winning."

    The Ams next home opponent ironically is Everett on Saturday.  The last team to beat Tri-City in its own digs.
