The Penticton Vees have a chance to validate their record-setting season Sunday when they play for a national title at the RBC Cup.
The Vees got a first-period marker from Wade Murphy that proved to be the winner in a 3-0 victory over the Soo Thunderbirds. Logan Johnston and Curtis Loik, with an empty-netter, tallied in the third. Michael Garteig made 20 saves for the shutout.
The win puts Penticton in the final where they will play the Woodstock Slammers. The New Brunswick side downed the previously undefeated Humboldt Broncos 4-3 in overtime to qualify for the title game.
Sunday's final starts at 4:30 p.m. Pacific. It will be televised live on TSN2.
