Wild Push Vees But Lose By One

Wenatchee, WA. – The Wenatchee Wild battled hard Saturday night, but it was the Penticton Vees who came away with the hard-fought victory, 3-2, in front of 3,969 fans at the Town Toyota Center.

Penticton scored the only goal of the first period, as Scott Conway skated home a loose puck and scored unassisted just 1:08 into the contest, giving the Vees a 1-0 lead after one.

In the second, Penticton would expand the lead. Colton Poolman scored an unassisted goal at 4:10 for a 2-0 lead. Shortly after, Wenatchee would get on the board, as Austin Chavez (Corona, CA) scored on a lucky bounce off a shot from the left point. Mike Coyne (Buffalo, NY) assisted at 6:55 to draw the Wild within one, at 2-1. However, an Owen Sillinger goal, assisted by Demico Hannoun and Tyson Jost at 15:09, gave the Vees a 3-1 lead after two.

Wenatchee continued to press the attack in the third period, getting a goal from Charlie Combs (St. Louis, MO), off assists from Brendan Harris (Las Vegas, NV) and Dakota Raabe (Dana Point, CA) at 2:30, drawing the Wild back to within one, at 3-2. However, they could get no closer and Penticton held on for the 3-2 win.

Wenatchee outshot the Vees 40-25 on the night. Chase Perry (Andover, MN) and Garrett Nieto (Yorba Linda, CA) combined for 22 saves for the Wild, while Anthony Brodeur had 38 stops for Penticton. Wenatchee went 0-for-3 on the power play and 3-of-3 on the penalty kill. “Well, we’re not into any moral victories, but it’s a big improvement from ten days ago.” said Wenatchee Wild Head Coach/General Manager Bliss Littler. “I thought we played awful well tonight. Played real well actually. We had three pipes in the third period, I was happy with how we played. We’re getting better.”
With the win, the Vees improve to 39-5-0-1 on the season, Wenatchee slips to 24-15-2-3. The Wild play three on the road next week: Wednesday, January 27th at Coquitlam, Friday, January 29th at Surrey and Saturday, January 30th, at Langley.

Hi John, first time we listened my wife and I were impressed with your great job. I get depressed when Chase gives up those early goals. The Wild worked so hard and yet after out shooting almost every other teams the puck just will not go in the net. I wish someone could give them the answer too find a way to get more goals. Keep up the good work. GO WILD
