KENT — Jordan Tkatch had the deciding score in the shootout as Prince George edged the host Seattle Thunderbirds 5-4 in Western Hockey League action Friday night.

In the shootout, both teams failed to score on the first three attempts.

Seattle (8-3-0-1) was shooting first in each round and Branden Troock broke through for the Thunderbirds in the fourth round.

But then Troy Bourke answered for the Cougars (6-6-0-1). After another round of no tallies, Tkatch got the winner for Prince George after Seattle failed to convert.

The action got furious toward the end of regulation. Seattle went ahead 4-2 on a power-play goal by Ethan Bear at the 16:50 mark.

The Cougars, though, quieted the crowd of 3,533 with a goal by Klarc Wilson at 17:14 to make it 4-3 and then the tying goal at 19:04 by Bourke.

Riley Sheen, Erik Benoit and Roberts Lipsbergs scored the other Seattle goals.

Mathew Barzal had two assists for Seattle.

For the Cougars, Chase Witala and Jansen Harkins were able to score goals.
