PENTICTON - It took a game seven in overtime, but the Penticton Vees prevailed to win the Fred Page Cup last night.

An overtime goal by Duncan Campbell sealed the deal in a 1-0 game against the Chilliwack Chiefs in what turned out to be the third game seven win in a row for Penticton in the 2017 playoffs.

Three periods of hockey failed to produce a goal from either team as the opening period began rather tentatively, with few scoring chances, according to the Vees.

The second period saw similar action, but the Vees came to life in the third period with a 13-7 edge in shots, but no goals to show for it.

The game was undecided until 9:25 of the first overtime period for Campbell to fire a rebound from a point shot past Chiefs goalie Mark Sinclair and end the game in favour of Penticton.

Both teams continue their seasons this Saturday, April 29, as the Western Canada Cup tournament gets underway at the South Okanagan Events Centre in Penticton.
