'Hawks edge Rockets

The Portland Winterhawks defeated the Kelowna Rockets 2-1 Friday in Western Hockey League action in Portland, winning the second straight close game over Kelowna this week as the Rockets continued a six game road trip.

The Rockets outshot Portland for the second straight game but fell short as only Zach Franko was able to beat Hawks netminder Mac Carruth, who was named first star.

Rockets goalie Jordon Cooke was named the third star in a 36 save performance.

Brad Ross opened the scoring for Portland in the first period, before Franko tied it early in the third with his seventh. A power play goal by the Hawks' Joe Morrow with  just over five minutes to play in the third period was difference.

It was the second of two in Portland after Wednesday's 4-2 loss and puts the Rockets at 2-2 on the trip, heading for games in Vancouver tomorrow and Everett on Sunday.
