The Everett Silvertips lived up to their billing in Game 1 of the WHL Championship Series.

A team known for being able to smother their opponent’s scoring ability did just that on the way to a 2-1 win over the Swift Current Broncos and a 1-0 lead in the best-of-seven series.

“I thought both teams played really well tonight,” said Broncos Head Coach/Director of Player Personnel Manny Viveiros. “I thought the goaltenders were very, very good. (The Silvertips) come as advertised. A team that battles really hard for loose pucks especially in their zone on the wall and in front of the net. We have to do a better job tomorrow as far as getting to the net area a lot more.”

It was a hard fought battle and could have gone either way until the Silvertips took an early third period lead and locked the game down the rest of the way.

“What I was really proud of was the response in the third,” said Silvertips Head Coach Doug Williams. “We started playing the way we can play. We played a 200 hundred foot game and we backed up every shift with a positive. From there we know it’s a short mindset towards a new game and a new day. We enjoy tonight, learn from it and lets get better tomorrow.”
