After the Buzzer – Vipers Down Warriors 5-3

Vernon, BC:  The Vipers used shorthanded goals from JoJo Tanaka-Campbell and Cam MacDonald as the Vipers took down the West Kelowna Warriors 5-3.

The Warriors opened the scoring on a powerplay as Cameron Hicklin deflected home his first BCHL goal.  The Vipers had a number of good chances throughout the first period, but weren’t able to capitalize until the end.  While up 5 on 3, Ryan Shostak set up Nick Kent who wired a slap shot past Johnny Derrick to make it 1-1 after 1.

While shorthanded early in the period, JoJo Tanaka-Campbell was sprung on a breakaway and finished off a nice move to make it 2-1.  Brennan Nelson had a great chance to equalize in the later stages of the period, but bobbled the puck on a penalty shot keeping the game 2-1.  Cam MacDonald set up Seth Bafaro a few moments later to increase the Vipers lead to 3-1.  Cameron Hicklin got the game back to within 1 as he poked home a loose puck to make it 3-2 Vernon after 2 periods.

Carter Wilkie struck early in the third period on the powerplay with a laser wrist shot over the shoulder of James Porter Jr. to make it 3-3.  The tie didn’t last very long as Kjell Kjemhus centered a puck that was slipped home by Tanaka-Campbell for his second goal of the night to make it 4-3.  Cam MacDonald sealed the game with a shorthanded dagger with just over 6 minutes remaining.  The would be the end result as the Vipers make the final 5-3.

The Vipers are next in action against Salmon Arm on Wednesday afternoon at 1pm.
