Vees defeated by Clippers in overtime

Clippers' Nicholas Gushue nets winner against Vees

Nicholas Gushue of the Nanaimo Clippers celebrated his 19th birthday by scoring twice against the Penticton Vees Saturday night, including the 3-2 overtime-winner at Frank Crane Arena.

The Vees opened the scoring when Alex Coulombe scored his first career BCHL goal on the power-play near the nine-minute mark of the first period. The Vees scored their second goal on the power-play when Anthony Conti deflected a Bret Beauvais shot from the slot. The goal was Cont’s fourth and his first in five games.

The Vees ran into trouble and gave the Clippers a five-on-three advantage. Gushue wired a wrist-shot from the top of the right-circle over Hunter Miska’s glove on the short-side. The Vees held a 2-1 lead until the final minutes of the third when Austin Dick fired a shot from the blueline finding a hole through players and past Miska’s blocker.

Gushue’s overtime-winner was scored when he fired a shot over Miska’s blocker. Miska finished with 25 saves. The Vees have now split their first two games of their three game road trip; the finale in Sunday against the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.
