Vees take on Warriors tonight at the SOEC

Following the game, Cassidy Bowes will be shaving his lid for kids

The Penticton Vees will be hosting the West Kelowna Warriors tonight at the South Okanagan Events Centre as their last home game of 2018.

The Vees picked up a win against the Vernon Vipers on Wednesday, besting their rival team 2-1. Lukas Sillinger put the Vees on the board in the game and later, Luke Loheit ended the 1-1 tie with a goal at 53 seconds left in the third period.

The Warriors are coming off of a four-game winning streak, racking up 19 goals in total for those games. They are currently two behind the Vees for first in the Interior Division.

Tonight’s game will kick off the teams’ last home-and-home series as they’ve faced off four times before this. The Warriors won the first three of these match ups, while the Vees brought home the win in the last one.

Following tonight’s game, Vees forward Cassidy Bowes will be wrapping up his fundraising efforts for kids cancer research by shaving his head on ice. Long-time season ticket holder Jon Race will be following suit with Bowes, with both men’s hair going to make wigs for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Bowes will be ending his fundraising early as the society will no longer be accepting real hair donations after Dec. 31. The Canadian Cancer Society will be at the SOEC during and after the game to supply tax receipts to anyone who makes a donation.
