After the Buzzer – Vees 4, Vipers 3

Vernon, BC:  The Vernon Vipers held a three nothing lead after 40 minutes, but it wouldn’t be enough on this night as the Vees rallied to take the game by a 4-3 score.

The Vipers jumped out to an early lead on a powerplay after Reagan Milburn rifled home a one timer just 4 seconds into the man advantage.  Ryan Shostak increased the lead a few minutes later making it 2-0 after 1.

They had plenty of opportunities to increase their lead.  One powerplay in particular had at least 3 grade A opportunities only to be thwarted by Kaeden Lane.  Luke Buss kept his point streak alive with a nice effort through the slot making it 3-0.  That score would hold after 2 periods.

Roan Clarke made a number of key saves early but eventually the momentum shifted as Brett Moravec fired home a rebound.  Ethan Mann scored midway through the period making it 3-2.  The Vees powerplay, which was kept quiet through most of the game, executed to make it 3-3.  A minute later the Vees took their first lead of the night following a Josh Nadeau goal.  The Vipers tried desperately to even it up but couldn’t find the equalizer as the final horn sounded.

The Vipers will next welcome in West Kelowna for a Wednesday night matchup.
