Hat tricks by Brendan O’Donnell and Mark MacMillan helped the Penticton Vees route the Prince George Spruce Kings out of Penticton 10-1 on Sunday.

While the visiting Spruce Kings got on the scoreboard 19 seconds in on a goal by Nic DeSousa, the Vees replied with 10 unanswered tallies, including seven in a penalty-filled second period. Joey Holka got the Vees offensive machine going in the second as he redirected Paul Bezzo’s shot from the point, then Garrett Milan scored from the slot after Logan Johnston spotted him from behind the net. MacMillan then deflected his second of the game past Alex Wright, who was pulled after allowing seven goals. The other Vees goal came off the stick of defenceman Joey Laleggia, who wired his 11th of the season past Wright. Vees goalie Joel Rumpel made 20 saves for the win.

The Vees next host the Merritt Centennials on Wednesday. For more coverage on the team, check Wednesdays issue of the Penticton Western News.
