Vipers Game Day! – Vipers Look To Make It Two In a Row

Vernon, BC:  The Vernon Vipers look to make it two wins in a row and wrap up the weekend on a winning note as they make the short trek to Salmon Arm.

The Vipers (1-4) took down the Silverbacks last night by a 5-2 score.  Cam MacDonald and 2 goals and 1 assist while Ethan Mercer, Jeremy Rainville and JoJo Tanaka-Campbell all had multi-point nights.  Roan Clarke made 23 saves in the win.

Special Teams was crucial last night as the Vipers scored 3 of their 5 while up a man.  Not to be outdone the PK had some timely kills including a big one in the third period.

The Silverbacks (1-4) will hope some home cooking helps them back into the win column.  Nathan Morgan had a strong debut with a goal and an assist.  The powerplay was a bright spot for the Backs as they put up both of their goals while on the PP.

It was a tough night statistically for Riley Kohonick in goal, but played strong making a number of big saves to keep his team in it.

You can catch all the action as the Okanagan Cup Tournament continues.  Puck drop is 6:30 with the pregame show starting at 6:15 on HockeyTV, 107.5 Beach Radio and Vernon Matters.
