Vernon, B.C.- The Vernon Vipers hot start leads to a 9-0 victory over the West Kelowna Warriors Monday night.
Both clubs traded quality scoring chances early on in the first two minutes of the game. After that, it was all Vipers. First Tyler Carpendale would score off a Seth Bafaro deflection to make it 1-0. Then 3 minutes late Carpendale would find an open Griffin Barr in the slot to extend the lead making it 2-0 midway through the first. Warriors blue liner Sullivan Curran would be penalized for a knee on knee putting the Vipers on a 4 minute power play and that’s where Trey Taylor would find an open Reagan Millburn giving the Vipers an early 3-0 lead heading into the dressing room.
Things got much worse for the Warriors in period two. The Vipers would score 4 more goals. Scorers included Nick Remissong, Jack Glen, Logan Lorenz and Griffin Bar would score his 2nd of the game to make it 7-0 heading into the dressing room.
Warriors needed some dignity heading into period three. Lots of time was spent inside the Vipers zone but the Warriors were unable to put one past James Porter Jr. The Vernon Vipers would add a pair of goals from Nick Remissong and Jack Glen to give the Vipers a 9-0 victory. James Porter Jr would pick up his 2nd shutout of the season.
The West Kelowna Warriors return to action Friday, April 30th, with a 7:00pm match up with the Vernon Vipers. Fans can catch the action on BCHLTV (formally HockeyTV) or on the free internet radio stream on Mixlr.
