by Spokane Chiefs

The Spokane Chiefs fell for the third time in four meetings with the arch rival Tri City Americans this season, as the Ams scored a 6-5 win over Spokane Saturday night in Kennewick. Spokane remains four points back of fourth place Portland in the U.S. Division.

The Chiefs jumped out to a 1-0 lead on Ethan McIndoe's 5th goal of the season at 8:07 of the first period. Tri City would even the game at one on a Tyler Sandhu power play goal midway through the period. Tri out shot Spokane 11-3 in the first as the Americans had all 3 power plays in the first. Tri City scored two goals early in the second to extend their lead to 3-1, but McIndoe scored his second of the night at 9:59 of the period to cut the lead to 3-2. Tri City countered just 33 seconds later on a Kyle Olson goal to go back up 4-2. Keanu Yamamoto scored his 11th of the year on a power play tally at 13:21 to bring the Chiefs back within 4-3. Yamamoto now has a 4 game goal scoring streak and has put up points in 8 straight contests.

Tri City would re-extend the lead less than 2 minutes later on a Nolan Yaremko goal, but the Chiefs cut the lead down to 5-4 after two on Pavel Kousal's 7th of the season at 17:20 of the second. Tri City would go back ahead by 2 on a Morgan Geekie goal late in the third, but the Chiefs got back within one as Evan Fiala scored his 2nd of the season at 17:16. Spokane couldn't get the equalizer after pulling goalie Jayden Sittler in the final minute and a half as the Chiefs record fell to 11-11-4-1.

Spokane will return home to host the Victoria Royals Wednesday night at 7:05pm.
