The Kelowna Rockets fell to the Everett Silvertips 3-1 Friday night at Prospera Place in Kelowna, BC.

While on the ensuing man advantage, Kyle Topping (20) gave the Rockets a 1-0 lead at 7:26. Everett's, Gianni Fairbrother (9) would tie up the game at 12:18 while also on the power play.
Bryce Kindropp (31) scored the lone goal during the second period at 8:18 to give the Silvertips their first lead of the game
