KENT, Wash. - Tyson Baillie scored 3:38 into overtime as the Kelowna Rockets came from behind to beat the host Seattle Thunderbirds 4-3 on Friday in Western Hockey League action.

Zach Franko, Dylen McKinlay and Ryan Olsen also scored for the Rockets (35-10-3), who won for the 13th time in their last 14 games.

Andrew Johnson and Riley Sheen had a goal and an assist each for the Thunderbirds (18-28-3), who blew a 3-1 lead, and Adam Kambeitz added the other.

Jackson Whistle made 27 saves for the win as Brandon Glover turned away 27 shots in defeat.

Kelowna failed to score on either of its chances with the man advantage, however it did pick up a shorthanded goal. Seattle went 1 for 7 with the power play.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
