Mario Lucia scored twice for the Penticton Vees as they pounded the Brooks Bandits 6-1 to take a 3-1 stranglehold in the Doyle Cup.

Travis St. Denis, who finished with three assists on the night, setup Lucia for his first goal, which proved to be the winner as it gave the Vees a 2-0 lead in the second period. The Vees outshot the Bandits 11-3 in the first period, but Bandits goalie Jan Obernesser turned aside each one.

In the third period, Mark Reners one-timed a shot past Vees goalie Michael Garteig, who was beat on his blocker side. The shot came from Garteig's left side and bulged the twine just inside the post. Lucia's second goal came 1:30 later to give the Vees a 3-1 lead. The Vees added three more goals by Ryan Reilly, Mike Reilly and Logan Johnston.
