Neither team got on the board in the first period, though the second frame was a different story. Kamloops got on the board first thanks to Reese Belton's 10th of the year.

After that, Rockets' captain Tyson Feist scored back-to-back goals to win it for Kelowna. The Rockets outshot Kamloops 35 to 31 on the night.

With the win, Kelowna improves to 30-12-1-3. They are still eight points behind the Blazers who sit at 35-14-2-0.

The two teams are back in action again Saturday. Puck drop at the Sandman Centre is at 7 pm.
