SPOKANE — The Everett Silvertips were in position to bring their losing skid to an end. But the Spokane Chiefs used a third-period surge to continue Everett’s misery.

Spokane scored all three of its goals in the third period, and the Chiefs came from behind to defeat Everett 3-1 Saturday night.

The loss was Everett’s fourth straight, and the Tips (1-5-0-2) have won just once in eight outings so far this season. Everett’s four points are the fewest by any team in the WHL’s Western Conference.

Darren Kramer and Mitch Holmberg scored goals just over a minute apart midway through the third period as Spokane overturned a 1-0 deficit. Dominik Uher then added a goal in the final minute to clinch it.

Mac Engel earned the win in goal for Spokane, making 20 saves.

Goaltender Kent Simpson tried to hold the fort for Everett, making several big saves among his 35 before the Chiefs finally found the breakthrough. Cody Fowlie scored the lone goal for the Tips.

Everett was clinging to its 1-0 lead in the third period, but Spokane was creating pressure and finally found the net at 8 minutes, 34 seconds. Brenden Kichton threaded a pass through traffic to the far post, where Kramer was able to score past Simpson to tie it up.

Less than a minute later the Chiefs found themselves on the power play, and Holmberg gave the Chiefs the lead at 9:41, putting home a rebound off the back boards.

Everett wasn’t able to mount much of a charge after that, and Uher finished it off when he scored on a feed from Steve Kuhn with 47 seconds remaining. Spokane ended up outshooting Everett 17-7 in the third.

Spokane carried play in the first period, outshooting Everett 13-6. However, Simpson made a pair of big saves to keep the Chiefs off the scoreboard, and the Tips took the lead on the power play at 13 minutes, 8 seconds. Ryan Murray collected the puck along the boards and fired to the back door, where Fowlie put it in to make it 1-0.

There wasn’t much in the way of scoring chances for either team in the second period as the score remained 1-0 going into the third.
