The Penticton Vees went one-and-one this weekend against the Vernon Vipers, with both teams taking their home games.

On Friday, the Vipers locked the Vees out of scoring, while picking up two goals of their own for a 0-2 final.

The two goals from the Vipers bookended the game, with the first 1:48 into the first and the last 18:06 into the third period.

Despite 42 shots on goal, the Vees were unable to find the back of the net, while Vees’ goalkeeper Carl Stankowski turned away 20 of 22 shots for his third loss of the season.

The Vees came back with speed on Saturday night, outshooting the Vipers throughout the game and outscoring them 4-1.

Halfway through the opening period, the Vees took the first point with a goal from Connor Hutchison that deflected off a Viper stick and past the goalkeeper’s blocker. Ethan Martini’s pass earned him an assist on Hutchison’s fourth goal of the season.

With only 26 seconds left in the period, the Vees took advantage of a late powerplay to double their lead. David Silye picked up the first of his three points of the game with his 12th goal of the year off an assist from Evan McIntyre.

The second period opened up with another quick goal from the Vees 1:37 in. Silye passed to Lukas Sillinger for his second point of the game and Sillinger’s 13th goal of the season.

Vernon tried to get back into the game in the third period with a goal at 3:05 from the Viper’s Logan Cash. The goal would be the only one for the Vipers, with the Vees striking back four-and-a-half minutes later for the final goal of the game.

Carson Kosobud picked up his third goal of the year, and second in four games, off assists from Sillinger and Silye to make the score 4-1 for the rest of the period.

Vees’ goalie Yaniv Perets marked his 16th win of the season with 20 of 21 shots turned aside, while the Vees found the back of the net with four of their 35 shots.

The Vees are back on home ice next week to finish off the year with a pair of games, first on Friday against Powell River Kings starting at 7 p.m. then back on Saturday to take on the Cowichan Valley Capitals at 6 p.m.
