The game ended in a tie before the Upper Deck Vees prevailed in a shootout

The UpperDek Vees would come out on top after the skills competition concluded shortly after 2 p.m. at the South Okanagan Events Centre.

A back and forth affair was headlined by several breakaways and impressive saves from each of the team’s goaltenders.
