After the Buzzer – Vipers Drop 7-1 Decision in Penticton

Penticton, BC:  It wasn’t the outcome the Vipers were hoping for to wrap up the weekend as they could only must one goal in a 7-1 defeat in Penticton.

The Vipers fell behind early as Lukas Sillinger rifled home a shot in the first two minutes to give Penticton the lead.  A few minutes later Danny Weight increased the lead with his 23rd of the season.  Less than a minute later Tyler Ho gave them a 3-0 lead just 5 minutes into the game.  Keegan Karki replaced Reilly Herbst following that goal.  Colton Kalezic made it 4-0 midway through the first.  The period settled down as the Vipers tried to generate something positive.  They had a couple of looks at Yaniv Perets, but couldn’t find the back of the net and trailed 4-0 after 1.

In the 2nd, Ethan Martini made it 5-0 sneaking down the left side early on in the period.  Midway through the period, Lukas Sillinger finished off a great individual effort to make it 6-0.  The Vipers failed to clear a zone shortly after and Liam Malmquist would make it 7-0 around the 13 minute mark.  On the next shift Matt Kowalski broke the shutout bid following a nice set up from Logan Cash.  7-1 was the score after 2.

Not much happened in the third, Penticton had a powerplay chance, but the crossbar and PK were solid to keep the score 7-1.  Despite a heavy collision between Hunter Donohoe and Carson Kosobud that dislodged a pane of glass, nothing of note really occurred as the final score finished 7-1.

The Vipers will next be in action on Tuesday night when they travel to Merritt to take on the Centennials.
