KELOWNA, B.C. - Jordon Cooke made 27 saves as the Kelowna Rockets defeated the visiting Brandon Wheat Kings 4-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Zach Franko, Dylen McKinlay, Tyson Bailie and Colton Heffley all scored for the Rockets (6-5-1), who have won back-to-back contests.

Alessio Bertaggia and Tim McGauley scored for the Wheat Kings (6-5-1) while Corbin Boes stopped 31 shots in a losing effort.

Neither club could produce on the power play as they both went 0-for-4.

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.
