After blowing out the Surrey Eagles 10-0 at home on Wednesday, the Penticton Vees repeated the feat at the Eagles nest in the South Surrey Arena Friday, 11-0.

Jack Ramsey potted the winner, his fourth of the season, 6:18 into the opening frame. Connor Russell and Demico Hannoun gave the Vees a 3-0 lead after one period.

The Vees exploded in the second period for five goals, including three from Cam Amantea who had not scored in his previous 11 games. Ramsey and Riley Alferd scored the other two goals in the frame.

Eagles starter Daniel Davidson lasted just 23:11 after making 11 saves on 16 shots and was pulled in favour of Kurt Russell.

The Vees added three more in the final frame from Lewis Zerter-Gossage, Matthew Serratore and Alferd, with his second of the night.

Brendan Barry made 23 saves for his first BCHL shutout and fourth win of the season. The Vees power play struck twice on five chances.

Amantea, Ramsey and Alferd had three points on the night, while Miles Gendron, Patrick Newell, Serratore, Cody DePourcq and Zerter-Gossage had two points in the Vees’ 12th straight win.

After receiving strong performances from affiliate players Griffin Mendel and Jordan Bellerive, the Vees got help from Mendel again and Tak Anholt.
