South Okanagan mayors put their BCHL jerseys on the line

Mayors of Penticton and West Kelowna make a “friendly” wager on the BCHL series outcome.

The mayors of Penticton and West Kelowna have thrown their hats, well, at least their jerseys, in the not-so-political ring of the B.C. Hockey League (BCHL) Interior Division quarter final playoffs between the Vees and Warriors.

Penticton Mayor John Vassilaki and West Kelowna Mayor, Gord Milsom, have placed a “friendly” wager on their community’s first round matchup in the BCHL playoffs.

Heading into the second game of the series Feb. 28, the Vees are up 1-0 following a decisive 7-1 win the night before at the South Okanagan Events Centre (SOEC).

Game time is 7 p.m.
