Kelowna 4 Seattle 3


Kevin Parnell

The Kelowna Rockets defeated the Seattle Thunderbirds 4-3 in Seattle on Sunday, bouncing back and winning the second half of a home and home series between the two teams, after the T-Birds had won on Friday.

A four goal second period was the difference for the Rockets, who climbed to within one game of the .500 mark at 22-23-2-4.

Trailing 1-0 after the first period, the Rockets scored four times in the second period, racing ahead to a 4-2 advantage. Damon Severson opened the onslaught with his 5t before Cody Chikie scored his 12th. Colton Sissons added his team-leading 26th and Brett Lyon scored his 13th, the game winner.

Chase Lund, Luke Lockhart and Cason Machacek scored for the T-Birds.

Jordon Cooke earned the win in net as the Rockets outshot Seattle 43-27.

The Rockets will now prepare for a double-header next weekend in Prince George. The Rockets and Cougars will play next Friday and Saturday nights before returning to Prospera Place Feb. 8 against Seattle.
