KELOWNA, B.C. - Jordon Cooke made 32 saves for Kelowna as the Rockets held on for a 3-0 win over the Prince George Cougars in WHL action Thursday night.

Myles Bell scored twice and Colton Sissons, with a penalty-shot goal that opened the scoring midway through the first period, also scored for Kelowna (5-5-1).

Prince George (5-5-1) suffered its fourth consecutive loss, including its second straight by shutout.

Mac Engel made 24 stops for the Cougars, who are now 1-2 against the Rockets this season. The two teams are tied for third place in B.C. Division standings with 11 points each.

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.
