Didur, Rivermen blank Vipers

Langley scores a 2-0 decision over the Vipers in B.C. Hockey League action Friday night at Kal Tire Place...

Bo Didur made 31 saves as the Langley Rivermen blanked the Vernon Vipers 2-0 in B.C. Hockey League action in front of 2,004 fans Friday night at Kal Tire Place.

Despite the loss, Vernon stays four points ahead of the Merritt Centennials in the battle for the fourth and final Interior Conference playoff spot as the Cents dropped a 4-2 decision to the Cowichan Valley Capitals in Duncan Friday.

Jason O’Neill, on a first-period deflection, and Max Kaufman, on an individual effort in the second, banging in his own rebound, scored for the Rivermen, who remain three points back of the Wenatchee Wild in the battle for second place in the Mainland Division (Wild beat Prince George 6-1 Friday at home).
