Despite 30 shots on net, the Penticton Vees couldn’t find a way past the goalie for the Chilliwack Chiefs on Friday night for a 0-4 loss.

The Vees led the first period with 12 shots to one, but the Chiefs used that single shot to get a powerplay goal past the blocker of Penticton goalie Yaniv Perets.

Perets faced down a total of 29 shots during the game, with an additional 25 shot blocked from getting through.

The second period saw the Chiefs take the offensive momentum, racking up 21 shots to the Vees’ eight, and two more goals to add to Chilliwack’s lead.

Despite four powerplays through the night, the Vees were unable to turn their scoring opportunities into goals, as the Chiefs’ Mathieu Caron had a ready glove and blocker.

The Vees are back on home ice on Wednesday night, hosting the Prince George Spruce Kings at the SOEC. The Vees first match against the Spruce Kings in September ended in a 4-3 win in overtime.

The puck for Wednesday’s game drops at 6:30 p.m.
