In front of an enthusiastic home crowd Friday night, the Penticton Vees took a 4-1 win against the Wenatchee Wild.

The Vees set the pace with two goals by Colton Kalezic and Danny Weight in the first period. By the end of the first, the home team was the only team to secure points on the board, and led shots on goal by more than double.

The Wild tallied the only goal of the second period making it 2-1 for Penticton, heading into the third. Despite this the Vees held their pace with 26-13 shots on goal by the end of the second.

The Vees managed to secure two more in the third period, courtesy of Tyler Ho and Darwin Lakoduk.

Tomorrow night the Vees take on the Wild again at the South Okanagan Events Centre which will serve as their last regular season game.

Playoffs begin next week against the West Kelowna Warriors. Game one is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27 at the South Okanagan Events Centre.
