Carter Shannon scored the game winner at 4:56 of the extra period.

Juanre Naude and Devin Sutton scored for the Chiefs.

Captain Brett Witala sat out for the Chiefs, serving the first of a two-game suspension for a checking-from-behind major penalty in Game 1.

Game 5 is set for Monday in Osoyoos, with Game 6, if needed, next Tuesday in Kelowna.
