PENTICTON - The Penticton Vees and the West Kelowna Warriors will face-off in one of two BCHL Interior Division Semi-Final best-of-seven series, starting Tues., March 3 at the South Okanagan Events Centre (SOEC).

The Vees finished first in the Interior and the BCHL with a 44-9-3-2 record, ending the 2014-2015 regular season with six straight wins.
