The Vernon Vipers will end a modest 2 game home stand on Wednesday as they take on the Langley Rivermen for the first of 2 meetings in 11 days. The Vipers are coming off a weekend split with the Penticton Vees that saw each team win on the road. The Vipers have been good at home ice this season, but have one win in their last 3 at Kal Tire Place.
Wins and losses have been consistently even all year long for the Snakes who will try get back to .500 when they face the Riv.
The Langley Rivermen come to town looking to remain perfect on a three-game road trip that has seen them victorious in Nanaimo (4-1) and Alberni Valley (7-0). Its been an up and down season for the Rivermen, but they seem to be turning it around with a record of 5-4-0-1 in their last 10 games.
Here’s the breakdown:
Vipers 10-11-2-0 (3rd in INT division) Rivermen 8-11-3-0 (5th in MLD division)
1. Jagger Williamson 5G 15A 20 Pts 1. Ryan Barrow 10G 18A 28 Pts
2. Jimmy Lambert 5G 10A 15 Pts 2. Max Kaufman 11G 14A 25 Pts
3. Niko Karamanis 9G 5A 14 Pts 3. Cam Ginnetti 2G 22A 24 Pts
Vipers PP (5th) – 25.8% PK (7th) – 78.9% Rivermen PP (10th) – 21.3% PK (16th) – 73.7%
These two teams split the two game season series last year, with both teams winning on the road. The Vipers hope that trend ends Wednesday night.
