Austin got his second of the game in the third period, assisted by Chamberlain.  Kelowna got an even-strength goal before the ’Tips got into more penalty trouble, playing five-on-three for almost five minutes.  Kelowna was only able to score one goal during this time.  Final score was 5-3 for Salmon Arm. Blake Puetz was solid in net for the ’Tips.
