DALPE NETS TWO AS THE VEES CAPTURE GAME ONE

A four goal, second period outburst was all the Penticton Valley First Vees needed to take Game One in the Best-of-Seven Interior Conference Final, downing the Westside Warriors 4-1, Friday night at the Memorial Arena.

 

Following a scoreless opening period, the Valley First Vees buried four straight goals in the second, including three in a span of just 4:22, to grab a comfortable 4-0 lead after 40 minutes.

 

Zac Dalpe with a pair, as well as singles from Michael Guzzo and Austin Smith, did the damage for Penticton.  Denver Manderson chipped in three assists.  Even goaltender Alex Evin earned a helper on Dalpe?s second marker of the period.

 

The Warriors were able to slip one past Alex Evin in the third.  However, despite a few consecutive man advantage opportunities, they could get no closer.  Each team tallied once on the powerplay.

 

Alex Evin got the win in net, stopping 26 of 27 shots as the Valley First Vees outshot Westside 34-27 overall.  The Warriors? Stephen Caple suffered the loss.  He was replaced by Nathan Lieuwen, who played a flawless third period in his first taste of post season action.

 

Game Two goes Saturday night at 7:00 in Penticton with the Valley First Vees hoping to go up Two Games to Nothing, prior to traveling the short distance to Westside for Games Three and Four, Tuesday and Wednesday night respectively.
