Jared Davidson scored twice as Seattle upended the Rockets 4-2

T-Birds double up Rockets

The Kelowna Rockets modest two-game winning streak came to an end Wednesday night in Seattle.

Kyle Crnkovic snapped a 2-2 tie midway through the second the Reid Schaefer found the empty net late in regulation time leading the Seattle Thunderbirds to a 4-2 home ice victory over the Rockets Wednesday night.

The T-Birds held leads of 1-0 and 2-1, only to see the Rockets come back to tie it on each occasion.

However, the Rockets were unable to find the equalizer a third time.

Trailing 1-0 during the opening moment of the game, Adam Kydd stole the puck along the side boards in the Seattle zone.

He played give-and-go with Gabriel Szturc before burying his own rebound, notching his 11th of the campaign.

After Jared Davidson restored the one goal lead early in the second, Jackson DeSouza went to work.

The stay-at-home defenceman who had just one goal in his first 84 games notched his third in two games to tie it.

After Szturc won a faceoff in the Seattle end, the puck came back to DeSouza whose wrist shot from the mid point seemed to handcuff Scott Ratzlaff in the T-Birds net.

Less than two minutes later, Crnkovic beat Talyn Boyko with what ;proved to be the game winner.

Andrew Cristall was held off the scoresheet Wednesday as his eight-game point streak came to an end.

The Rockets will travel up I-95 for a date with the Everett Silvertips Friday before returning home to host the Moose Jaw Warriors Saturday.
