Vernon Vipers edge West Kelowna Warriors

First game of 2019 puts snakes in good standing for new year

The Vernon Vipers are starting off 2019 in winning fashion.

The Snakes beat the West Kelowna Warriors at Kal Tire Place Friday night 4-3, after leading the entire game.

Josh Latta scored the first goal, in the first period. By the third period, the Vipers were up 4-1, but the Warriors quickly scored two goals to get back into the game.

The Warriors even pulled their goalie for the last 30 seconds in an effort to tie it up, but Vernon was victorious.

The Vipers return to their home ice Saturday against the Merritt Centennials for a special SilverStar Mountain Resort game, which will see the stands packed for Australia night.
