Penticton Vees dump Trail Smoke Eaters

The Penticton Vees scored four times in the third period on their way to a 7-1 victory over the Trail Smoke Eaters on Tuesday.

Penticton Vees forward Scott Conway had a four assist night, leading the Vees to a 7-1 drubbing of the Trail Smoke Eaters on Tuesday at the Cominco Arena.

Penticton jumped out to a 3-0 lead less than seven minutes into the first period to chase Smokies goalie Bailey MacBurnie on their way to their 20th straight victory. Domenic Masselis, Chris Gerrie, and Demico Hannoun made it 3-0 by the 6:44 mark to give the Vees a commanding lead they would not relinquish.

Max Newton replied before the end of the first period to make it 3-1, but two third period goals from Easton Brodzinski, and singles from Tyson Jost and Desi Burgart sealed it for the Vees.

Penticton outshot Trail 30-27 and went 3-for-6 on the power play while Trail was 0-for-4. The Smoke Eaters face the Island division leading Cowichan Valley Capitals Friday at 7:30 p.m. at the Cominco Arena and the Victoria Grizzlies on Sunday at 3 p.m.
