Vees add another notch to the win column

The team beat the Surrey Eagles 4-1 in the Bauer BCHL Showcase on Sept. 20

The Penticton Vees added another notch to their win column with a 4-1 win over the Surrey Eagles at the Bauer BCHL Showcase in Chilliwack on Sept. 20.

Just 22 seconds into the game, Lukas Sillinger scored his second goal of the season off a rebounded shot by Mason Snell, quickly giving the Vees the lead.

This lead extended further when Kenny Johnson scored at 10 and a half minutes with a wrist shot deflected off a Surrey player and into the net. The second period would turn out to be scoreless for both teams but the Vees managed to lead on the shot clock 22-20.

Jack LaFontaine was called for delaying the game when he cleared the puck over the glass. This would allow the Eagles to start the third period on a power play.

Shortly following the power play, Chase Stevenson made a pass to Eric Linell who was able to tap the puck in for his fifth goal of the season. This put the Eagles on the board with the score 2-1 for the Vees.

Roughly five minutes later, Drew Elser took a heavy hit from Cody Schiavon, with Luke Loheit coming to Elser’s defence. Loheit and Schiavon would end up trading blows, resulting in their ejection from the game for fighting.

During the ensuing four on four, David Silye was able to fake out a Surrey defender in a one on one and score a backhanded goal. He would then go on to score the last goal of the game on an empty net with 2:34 remaining in the period. Peter Muzyka took a late check after the following face off by Sam Feldman, who would be ejected from the game and given a checking from behind major.

Game final was 4-1 for the Vees, who will be taking on the Prince George Spruce Kings next.
