Season ender nail-biter

The Penticton Vees took it all the way to double overtime in the last game of their regular season, but couldn't hang on to a win. 

The 2 p.m. game against the Salmon Arm Silverbacks at home in Penticton was close the whole time, with the Silverbacks just managing to tie up the score 4-4 with five minutes remaining in the third period. 

After one full overtime period, Vees forward Jackson Keane got called for tripping, leading to a power play goal by the Backs' Tanner Campbell to take the win 5-4. 

The loss doesn't affect the Vees' standing for their season, however. The team already clinched a first place finish in the BCHL — their seventh straight Interior Division title — after a 5-1 win over Wenatchee Saturday night. 

That means the Vees will have home ice advantage in game one of the playoffs, Friday night at the South Okanagan Events Centre.
