KENNEWICK, Wash. - The Spokane Chiefs were defeated 3-0 by the Tri-City Americans on Saturday night, marking the end of the Chiefs' regular season schedule. The Chiefs finish the year with an 0-1 record versus the rival Americans.

The 2nd Period would be all Americans as they scored twice on the power play while holding the Chiefs scoreless on two of their own one-man advantages. Parker Bowles netted his 14th and Beau McCue tallied his 20th goal of the season to put the Chiefs behind by the final score.

The Chiefs finished 0 for 3 on the power play and 5 for 7 on the penalty kill.

With the loss, the Chiefs are locked in to the 6th Seed in the Western Conference and will face the Victoria Royals in the 1st Round. The schedule for the playoffs is yet to be finalized.
