Penticton, BC: Tyler Carpendale had a pair of goals and the Vipers kept the Vees to just 22 shots, but found themselves on the wrong side of a 6-3 loss at the South Okanagan Events Centre.
The goals would come in flurries throughout the game and no better example of it in the first period where there just only 9 shots combined, but 3 goals. All three of those goals came within a 61 second span. Tyler Carpendale opened the scoring with his 2nd of the exhibition tournament before JoJo Tanaka-Campbell rang up a powerplay goal. Quinn Hutson replied just 21 seconds later making it 2-1 after 1 period.
Jacob Quillan and Quinn Hutson added goals in the middle period for the Vees to make it 3-2 after 2.
Hutson had his 3rd of the night with 7 minutes remaining. Moments after that, Tyler Carpendale responded with his 2nd of the night to make it 4-3. Devlin O'Brien would have two of his own including a buzzer beater to make the final score 6-3.
The Vipers will be in action on Friday night as the play in the semi-finals of the Okanagan Cup Tournament when they head to West Kelowna. Time of the game will be released some time this week.
