Vees clipped at home

Clippers hand Vees their first regulation loss at home in front of 2,507 fans

The Penticton Vees fired 45 shots, including 18 in the third period, but only managed to beat Nanaimo Clippers goalie Jayson Argue three times in a 5-3 loss Saturday night.

The Clippers led 2-1 after the first period when Brendan Taylor and Anthony Sabitsky found the back of the net. The Vees bounced back after Sabitsky’s goal on a bounce that went their way. Cody DePourcq banged-in a rebound off the end wall past Argue with 23 seconds remaining in the period.

Neither team scored in the second period.

Riley Alferd tied the game at 2-2 with his first BCHL goal. Scott Prier put the Clippers back on time on the power play. Brad McClure tied the game at three with his fifth goal in his last four games. Korey Morgan netted the winner to minutes later and Spencer Hewson secured the win with an empty-netter.

The loss is the first in regulation at home for the Vees, and just their second in 10 games at the South Okanagan Events Centre.
