Rockets limp home

The Kelowna Rockets limped back home after a fruitless three game swing through the U.S. Division.

Thee Rockets managed to pick up just one out of six available points, after falling 2-1 to the Tri-City Americans in Kennewick, WA. Tuesday evening.

Nolan Yaremnko scored both goals for the Americans, the eventual game winner coming 14 minutes into the final period which gave the Americans some much needed breathing room.

The goal stood up after Dillon Dube cut the deficit in half on a late third period power play.

In fact, the Rockets had a chance to tie the game after they were handed a five-minute power play when Jordan Topping was sent off for boarding late in the third.

The Rockets managed only Dube's goal during the elongated man advantage.

Americans goaltender Beck Warm kept them at bay the rest of the way.

Kelowna has now lost four in a row to sit at 4-4-1-1.

They return home to host the Portland Winterhawks in back-to-back games Friday and Saturday at Prospera Place.

This past weekend in Portland, the Winterhawks beat the Rockets 5-4 in overtime and 8-2.
