EVERETT – The Everett Silvertips got the first and last goals Sunday night but the Spokane Chiefs scored everything in between in a 5-2 victory for their third victory in three nights.

Spokane spread their goals among five players and its eight assists came from seven Chiefs.

The Chiefs turned the tables on Everett with a three-goal second period after the Silvertips had scored three in the second in a 4-1 win at the Spokane Arena last Tuesday.

Trailing 1-0, the Chiefs got goals from Riley Woods, Riley McKay and Kailer Yamamoto for a 3-1 lead after two periods.

Filip Kral made it 4-1 and Matt Leduc got his first career Western Hockey League goal before Everett scored once more.

Ty Smith collected two more assists for a team-high 55 this season with Milos Fafrak, Jaret Anderson-Dolan, Ethan McIndoe, Hudson Elynuik, Eli Zummack and Jeff Faith picking up one apiece.

Donovan Buskey made 29 saves in goal with Everett putting 31 shots on goal to 29 for Spokane.

The Chiefs beat Prince George, Kootenay and Everett on consecutive nights.

The Chiefs are third in the U.S. Division with 77 points, one behind second-place Portland, 10 back of Everett and five in front of Tri-City.

The Chiefs play at Tri-City on Friday night at 7:05 in the second game of a six-game road trip.
