SPOKANE, Wash., -- Reid Gow collected a career-high four assists, and Mitch Holmberg added a goal and two assists of his own, to help lead the Spokane Chiefs to its 11th win of the season, 7-1 over the Brandon wheat Kings in front of 4,720 fans at the Spokane Arena on Friday night.

Keanu Yamamoto scored his first career WHL goal in the third period. Jason Fram and Riley Whittingham each earned an assist after finding the WHL rookie in front of the crease for Spokane's seventh and final goal of the night.

Goalie Eric Williams also had an outstanding game, stopping 35 of 36 shots. It wasn't until 3:13 left in the game, and a 5-on-3 power play for Brandon, when the Wheat Kings prevented the shutout. Eric Roy had the goal.
