Penticton team go 2-2 at peewee tier 3 tournament

The Penticton Pacific Rim Jr. Vees peewee tier 3 team won two and lost two at the 12-team tournament they hosted last weekend.

“We are improving. We are a young team with mostly first-year players and they are starting to learn to play better as a team as the season goes on,” said Jr. Vees coach Casey McMillan.

The team kicked off the tournament with a 5-4 win over Vernon. They then lost a tight battle with Kent Valley 3-2. The Jr. Vees then bounced back to defeat Revelstoke 5-3.

McMillan said in the fifth/sixth placement game, the Jr. Vees squad lost to Summerland 9-7.
