SPOKANE — Chase Freidt-Mohr scored his first career goal with one second remaining in the third period for Spokane, which scored a season-high five third period goals in a 7-6 loss to the Portland Winterhawks in Western Hockey League play at the Spokane Arena on Saturday, snapping the Chiefs two-game win streak.

Portland led 4-1 after two periods, but Spokane rallied with three goals in the first three minutes of the third, tying the game on Eli Zummack’s first shorthanded goal of the season. Portland scored on the power play three minutes later, the first of three straight to take a 7-4 lead.

Ty Cheveldayoff scored his first career goal with 36 seconds remaining, then assisted on Friedt-Mohr’s goal to cut the deficit to 7-6.

Zummack, Erik Atchison and Reed Jacobson had a goal and assist each for Spokane (2-5-2-1, 7 points), which begins a three-game road trip at Everett on Tuesday at 7:05 p.m.
