Chiefs lose third in a row

CRANBROOK, British Columbia – Suddenly for the Spokane Chiefs, goals are coming at a premium.

The Chiefs scored just one time – a power-play goal by Jason Fram in the second period – and fell to the Kootenay Ice 2-1 in Western Hockey League action on Friday night.

It was the third straight loss for Spokane, a streak in which the Chiefs have scored just four times.

Jaedon Descheneau gave Kootenay (14-15-0-0) the upper hand early, scoring off assists from Luke Philp and Levi Cable just 41 seconds into the game.

Fram tied it at 1 late in the second period. It was Fram’s fourth goal of the year.

Kootenay’s Sam Reinhart scored the game-winner 5:39 into the third period.

The Chiefs (14-10-3-0) had their opportunities – they outshot Kootenay 32-21 – but couldn’t convert.

They’ll look to rebound tonight at home against the Ice. The puck drops at 7:05.
