The Eagles were the top team in the Coastal Conference while the Vees were the best in the Interior Conference.

Penticton has won 14 titles in total and is currently the winner of two consecutive championships.

A win and the Vees would become the first team to three-peat since the Vernon Vipers in 2009-11.

The two teams faced each other once this season with the Vees coming out on top 4-1.

Both teams were relatively unscathed in the first two rounds of the playoffs before needing seven games in each conference to decide a winner.

The Eagles defeated the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, while the Vees scored two goals in the final 30 seconds of their match against Salmon Arm to win.

This is the third time in playoff history these two teams have played in the finals.

In 1998, the South Surrey Eagles beat the Penticton Panthers in five games and more recently the Eagles defeated the Vees in six games to capture the 2013 title.

The Eagles have their eyes on becoming the first team from the Lower Mainland to win the Fred Page Cup since the Coquitlam Express won in 2014.

Games one and two are in Surrey and games three and four are in Penticton next Tuesday and Wednesday.
