The Vernon Watkin Motors Mustangs and Kelowna Rockets played to a 4-4 tie in an Okanagan Tier 1 U13 hockey game that saw three lead changes.
The Vernon visitors jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals from Hudson Podollan and Jack Saxton, but the hometown Rockets would get one back before the end of the opening frame from Will Fuhrmann.
Second-period markers from Jesse Zarr and Kohlby Foster gave Kelowna a 3-2 edge heading into the final period.
Goals 35 seconds apart from Saxton and Harry Watson in the opening two minutes of the frame gave the Mustangs a 4-3 lead.
Things stayed that way until Zarr tied the contest with just 1:48 remaining in the game.
Gunnar Podollan was in goal for Vernon.
