TULSA, OK – The Allen Americans defeated the Tulsa Oilers 9-1 Friday at Tulsa’s annual Military Appreciation Night at the BOK Center. It was the most lopsided defeat of the season for the Oilers.

The Americans cashed in on a four-minute power play early in the first period, when Spencer Asuchak banked a shot off of an Oilers skate and into the net from the corner. Bryan Moore made it 2-0 after Allen killed off a Tulsa power play, when he ripped a wrist shot over the glove of Oilers goaltender Colin Stevens.

Tulsa cut the deficit in half when Christophe Lalancette deflected a shot from the point past Allen goalie Riley Gill with 7:03 to play in the opening frame. But the Americans capitalized on some puck luck on their third power play when the puck caromed off of a stanchion at the half wall on a dump-in and Gary Steffes scored to make it 3-1 at the first intermission.

Allen opened up their lead to 6-1 with three more goals in the second period. Josh Brittain scored 3:57 into the stanza, followed by a goal from league-leading scorer Chad Costello that chased Stevens from the net for backup Jay Williams. Kale Kerbashian tallied the sixth Americans goal with 5:48 left in the period.

Costello score two more goals in the third period to complete the hat-trick, and  Brittain scored his second of the game, the final goal of Allen’s 9-1 victory. Gill stopped 36 of 37 attempts in the win, his 6th victory in seven outings against the Oilers.

UP NEXT: The Oilers complete a season-long eight-game home Sunday at 4:05pm against the Missouri Mavericks at the BOK Center.
