Chiefs dominate Rockets

Mitch Holmberg scored his first two goals of the season and Anthony Bardaro added two power play goals to spark the Spokane Chiefs to a 5-1 win over Kelowna at the Arena Saturday night.

However, it was 16-year old defenseman Jason Fram who got the Chiefs going with the first goal and second in two nights.

Cody Chikie scored for the Rockets late in the second period after it was 4-1. The Chiefs out-shot the Rockets 45-12, including 18-3 in the first period, getting the first 15 shots.
