Penticton Vees defenceman Joey Laleggia continued his clutch play scoring twice to lead the Vees past the Westside Warriors 2-1 in overtime.

The win on the road on Tuesday night helped move the Vees into a tie for first place in the Interior Conference. LaLeggia now has 20 points in fourteen games and has scored four of the last five goals the Vees have produced dating back to their Saturday overtime win in Trail.

Matthew Maher opened the scoring for the Vees in a penalty-filled first, which saw Laleggia and Tyler Krause drop the mitts at the end of the first.

A crowd of 707 in Royal LePage Place watched both teams battle during scoreless second and third periods. In the extra period, Laleggia broke the hearts of Warrior fans as he scored with 2:33 gone.

The Vees, who are enjoying a perfect October (4-0-0), went 1-for-4 on the power play while the penalty kill was 4-for-5.

Next action for the Vees comes on Wednesday at the SOEC at 7 p.m. when the Quesnel Millionaires make their first visit to Penticton. This game is also one of just five games remaining where kids and students can get free admission to the S.O.E.C. thanks to Peter Brothers Paving. 

Children 12 and under must be accompanied by a ticket holding adult, while students are asked to bring ID. Fans are encouraged to redeem their free tickets for the October home games on non-game days to avoid delays at the box office.
