The Kelowna Rockets were downed 4-1 by the Prince George Cougars Saturday night at the CN Centre in Prince George, BC.

During the first period, Trevor Wong stole the puck from a Cougar but was called for slashing. During the ensuing penalty kill, Jack Sander's (1) shot ricocheted off of the post and past Rockets starter Roman Basran to give the Cougars a 1-0 lead at 17:03.

The Cougars power play extended their lead to two during just before the midway point of the second period when Ethan Samson (1) tapped in a pass at the backdoor. Nolan Foote (2) cut the Cougars lead in half when he launched a power play shot past Tyler Brennan.

Josh Maser (2) and Filip Koffer (1) both scored empty-net goals in the final minute of the game to lift the Cougars to a 4-1 lead.

The Rockets are now 4-2-1-0 on the season.

Basran stopped 28 of the 30 shots he faced, his record moves to 4-1-1-0. Prince George outshot Kelowna 32-27.

Rocky Raccoon and some of the Rockets players will be in attendance at tomorrow's CIBC Run For The Cure in City Park at from 9:00am to 10:00am.
