After the Buzzer – Vipers Complete Comeback, Win 3-2

Vernon, BC:  The Vernon Vipers had goals from Desmond Johnson, Nick Kent and Cam MacDonald as they were able to erase a 2-goal deficit and defeat the West Kelowna Warriors 3-2.

The Warriors opened the scoring in the first period during a 4 on 4 sequence when Carter Wilkie set up Tyler Cristall who one timed a shot past Roan Clarke.  That was the lone tally in the opening frame.

In the second period Porter Dawson gave the Warriors a 2-0 lead with a nice move around a defender and snap shot just inside the post.  Midway through the period, the Vipers scored 2 goals in 15 seconds after Desmond Johnson scored his first BCHL goal and Nick Kent’s slap shot found a way through traffic.

The Vipers had a chance on a 5 minute major powerplay, but couldn’t find the back of the net.  Once again the game was in 4 on 4 and Trey Taylor set up Cam MacDonald who snapped home his 5th goal of the Pod Season to give the Vipers their first lead.  Roan Clarke made a huge save in the dying seconds to help his team secure the victory.

With the win, the Vipers now improve to 10-4-1-1 in the Pod.  The Vipers will wrap up their weekend tomorrow night when they take on the Salmon Arm Silverbacks at 6pm.
