The Penticton Vees lost to the Salmon Arm Silverbacks in a 3-2 shootout last night in Salmon Arm.
Ryan Sandelin first put the Vees on the board 17 seconds into the game with a backhanded goal. This was his seventh goal so far of the season.
Vees’ Kenny Johnson then earned a 10-minute misconduct for a blow to the head minor penalty. This was the only penalty the Vees’ would receive and it would leave them shorthanded when Matthew Verboon scored his sixth goal for the Silverbacks.
Eight minutes into the second period, Vees’ Jack Lagerstrom scored his first BCHL goal with a slap shot from the right wing circle. Vees would hold there 2-1 lead going into the third period with 16 shots on net to Salmon Arm’s five.
Noah Wakeford helped tie the game for the Silverbacks early in the third period when he stole the puck from behind the Vees’ net and set Nick Unruh up for his first goal of the year. The game went onto a three-on-three overtime, which proved fruitless and led to a shootout.
After the first four shooters all scored, Sandelin was shut down by Langenegger while Akito Hirose slipped one over Jack LaFontaine’s glove winning the game. Tonight the Vees face off against the Cowichan Valley Capitals with Mason Snell returning from his suspension.
