Vernon Kia Game Day – Vipers Make Final Visit to the NVMA

Vernon, BC:  The Vernon Vipers look to shake off a rough outing on Saturday night as they head to Merritt to take on the Centennials.

The Vipers (26-21-2-1) come into the game having won 2 of 3 games last week.  Crucial wins over Wenatchee and Prince George at home gave way to a lopsided loss in Penticton.  Its been a busy stretch for the group as they just finished a 12 game month that saw them play 10 games in 18 days.  The Vipers currently sit 1 point behind Salmon Arm for 3rd place in the division and 3 points ahead of Wenatchee for 5th.  All 3 teams have played 50 games.  Wenatchee is idle.

The Centennials (10-36-1-3) have lost 14 straight games coming into the night.  They have a two game week that will also see them travel to Prince George on Friday.  Don’t let their record fool you, this is a Merritt team that works extremely hard and has pushed the top teams in the division.  Close losses to Trail (6-4 and 4-3), Chilliwack (6-4) and Salmon Arm (5-3) just to name a few.

Its the 5th of 6 regular season meetings.  They’ll wrap up the season series on Family Day.

You can catch all the action starting at 6:45 with the pregame show on 107.5 Beach Radio, Vernon Matters and HockeyTV.
