Vipers tame the Wild

The Vernon Vipers will try to end the 2017-18 BC Hockey League season on a winning note when they face the Trail Smoke Eaters tonight at Kal Tire Place.

The Vipers earned a come-from-behind win Friday night in Vernon when they bested the Wenatchee Wild 4-3.

The Wild jumped out to an early lead, scoring twice in the first eight minutes of the opening frame.

But the Vipers rallied, scoring four goals while Wenatchee managed only one more marker in the third.

Niko Karamanis led the charge for the Snakes with two goals on the night. Singles came from Michael Ufberg and Jimmy Lambert.

The win puts the Vipers in second place in the Interior Division and in the BC Hockey League, two points ahead of the Wild with 81 points.

The Penticton Vees continue to lead the division, and the league, with 83 points.

The Vipers close the regular season tonight when they meet the Smokies at 6 p.m. in Kal Tire Place.

The Vees end their season Sunday against the Salmon Arm Silverbacks in Penticton.
