SPOKANE, Wash. – Dominic Zwerger scored twice but the Chiefs couldn’t hold on late, falling to the Tri-City Americans 4-3 at Spokane Arena on Saturday afternoon. The game marked the end of the Chiefs’ 2015 preseason schedule, with the regular season starting on Bud Light Opening Night on September 26 at Spokane Arena.

After a scoreless first period, Tri-City’s Taylor Vickerman scored his second of the preseason, on a power play, at the 10:57 mark of the second period.

Zwerger answered just under six minutes later, at the 16:51 mark, beating Tri-City goaltender Beck Warm to tie the game at 1-1. Defensemen Matt Sozanski and Evan Fiala earned assists on the play.

Riley Whittingham put the Chiefs up 2-1 on a rebound goal just 58 seconds into the third period. Jason Fram, recently returned from Calgary Flames training camp earned an assist with the outlet pass on the play while Hudson Elynuik earned an assist with the shot.

The Americans’ Parker Bowles deflected a Vickerman shot from the point to fool goaltender Garret Hughson and tie the game at 2-2 with 15:40 remaining in regulation.

The Chiefs took the lead for the second time on the night as Zwerger scored on a breakaway with just under 10 minutes left, with assists to Kailer Yamamoto and Fram.

Tri-City bounced right back just 35 seconds later as Jordan Topping found the back of the net on a slapshot off assists from Dakota Krebs and Nolan Yaremko.

Bowles scored the game-winner with his second goal of the night at the 11:05 mark of the third and final period.

Spokane finished the night 0-for-4 on the power play and 2-for-3 on the penalty kill. Garret Hughson started in goal for the Chiefs and made 25 saves. Nicholas Sanders started for the Americans and stopped all 20 shots faced before being replaced midway through the second period by Beck Warm, who stopped 19 of 22 shots.
