Vees pick up 10th win with eight left in season

The Vees picked up a 4-1 win over the Trail Smoke Eaters on Friday

The Penticton Vees are in the home stretch of Pod Season with their 10th victory.

The Vees beat the Trail Smoke Eaters 4-1 on Friday, April 21, in the Vees’ 12th game out of 20 for the season. The Vees had one overtime loss and one regulation time loss so far this season.

Despite the Smoke Eaters opening up the shots with five to the Vees’ one, Penticton was first on the scoreboard with a goal from Josh Niedermayer.

In the second period, the Smoke Eaters started with 30 seconds of powerplay time, which they used to put pressure on Vees’ goalkeeper Kaeden Lane and tie up the game.

Fin Williams brought the lead back to the Vees at the 9:13 mark, with the team outshooting the Smoke Eaters by a two-to-one ratio for the period.

In the third period, with just over a minute to go, Tyler Ho put the Vees ahead 3-1.

Just 24 seconds later, Williams redirected a shot for his second goal of the game and the final goal of the night.

Kaeden Lane picked up his eighth win in goal for the Vees, stopping 17 of the 18 shots thrown his way while the Smoke Eaters’ Logan Terness turned aside 29 of the 32 shots he faced in the game in his third loss.

The Vees are back on the ice at the South Okanagan Events Centre at 6 p.m. for the puck drop against the Cranbrook Bucks.
