Tuesday, McClure picked up a goal, the game-winner in the third period, and an assist in a 3-2 come from behind win over the Warriors. Friday he scored twice and finished with a game-high four points in a 5-4 loss to the Langley Rivermen. The Captain helped the Vees back in the win column on Saturday, scoring twice in a 9-4 romp over the Chiefs.
