Chiefs fall in Seattle

The Spokane Chiefs lost at Seattle Friday night. Despite controlling the game offensively the Chiefs picked up just one goal and lost in a shootout after goalie James Reid was brilliant in overtime. (I couldn't find a story in the Seattle times but the long box is below.) There is also a story by Greg Meachem in the Red Deer Advocate on Chiefs' backup goalie Mac Engle. The Chiefs are at Tri-City tonight.
