Penticton Vees Win Game 7 Over Vipers – The Penticton Vees are headed to the Fred Page Cup Finals against the Chilliwack Chiefs after beating the Vernon Vipers 3-1 to win game seven of the Interior Division Championship. A huge crowd turned out to support the Vees who seemed to have a little more left in the gas tank as the Vees jumped out to a 3-0 lead and didn’t give the Snakes much room to mount a comeback.
The Vees will now play Chilliwack for the league final in what will be an interesting match-up. Because Penticton has an automatic berth into the Western Canadian Championships as the host team…both teams really don’t need to empty the tank knowing they’ll be playing each other for a shot at the RBC anyways. So we’ll see if the battle for the BCHL championship will turn out to be a non-hitter and if either team really wants to see a seven game series go the whole way.
