Puck drops on tournament play

Penticton Minor Hockey Association hosts midget Tier 2 tournament over the weekend

Penticton Minor Hockey Association is hosting its first tournament of the 2015-16 season.

It will be a 12-team midget Tier 2 event at the South Okanagan Events Centre, Memorial Arena, McLaren Park Arena and the OHS Training Centre from Oct. 2-4. The Penticton Peerless Vees start the weekend against Coquitlam at 5 p.m. at Memorial Arena on Friday. Their second game is a 6:30 a.m. puck drop on Saturday against Kelowna at Memorial Arena, then they face Chilliwack, also at Memorial Arena at 1:15 p.m.

The playoff round begins Sunday with first versus third playing at Memorial Arena at 6:30 a.m, while second versus fourth meet in the OHS at the same time. The championship will be at 1:15 p.m. at Memorial Arena. The winners of the opening two games on Sunday will meet in the championship.

The Vees opened their 2015-2016 regular season with a 7-0 win over Kelowna on Sept.26.

The Vees used their speed and were disciplined to put on a strong performance.

Leading the way offensively was Linden Gove with a hat-trick and an assist. Goals also came from Daylan Devlin, Sammy Gabriel, Louis Shortreed and Reid Newson. Bobby Milligan picked up the shutout in his first win.
