Vees, Bulldogs settle for tie

The Penticton Vees and Alberni Valley Bulldogs battle to a tie

A 4-4 draw by the Penticton Vees against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs Saturday snapped their five-game winning streak.

It was the Vees’ first game without captain Tyson Jost and assistant captain Dante Fabbro, who departed for Leduc, Alta. for Team Canada West tryouts for the World Junior A Challenge.

The Vees opened the scoring on a goal by Benjamin Brar in the opening period at 12:29. Six minutes later, the Bulldogs drew even when Nathan Dingmann setup Quinn Syrydiuk at 18:34.

The teams would trade goals again in the second period on goals by Colton Poolman for the Vees and Dingmann for the Bulldogs.

In the final frame, the Vees used their power-play to put them back ahead. First Easton Brodzinski and Poolman setup Nicholas Jones, then more than two minutes later, Brodzinski and Jones setup Scott Conway to give the Vees a two-goal edge. The Vees power-play finished up two-for-five.

Two minutes later Syrudiuk cut into the Vees’ lead with his second of the game on the power-play and Josh Adkins made it 4-4 seven minutes later at 18:14.

Carson Schamerhorn finished with 21 saves, while Anthony Brodeur turned aside 34.

The Vees are now 28-2-1-0, while Alberni is 10-16-2-1.
