KELOWNA, B.C. - Mitch Holmberg scored twice and Eric Williams made 39 saves Wednesday as the Spokane Chiefs topped the Kelowna Rockets 6-4 in the Western Hockey League.

Dylan Walchuk, Collin Valcourt and Liam Stewart each added a goal and an assist for Spokane (5-1-0), while Mike Aviani also scored.

Ryan Olsen had two goals for Kelowna (3-4-1), while Dylen McKinlay chipped in with a goal and two assists.

Colton Sissons had the other goal for the Rockets, who got 27 saves out of Jordan Cooke.

Both clubs finished the night 1-for-4 on the power play.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
