Rockets seal regular season with sweep of Giants

The Kelowna Rockets closed out the Western Hockey League regular season by extending their franchise record for wins in a season with their 57th, beating the Vancouver Giants 5-3 Saturday in WHL action night at Prospera Place in Kelowna.

Carter Rigby scored twice while Madison Bowey, Nick Merkley and Rourke Chariter added singles as the Rockets improved to 57-11-0-4 on the season.
