Cody Hendrickson scored with just over a minute to play as the Vernon Home Building Centre Vipers salvaged a 4-4 with the host team at the ninth annual Seafair Icebreaker Midget Hockey Tournament Friday night in Richmond.

Hendrickson recently joined the Vipers after being with the KIJHL Revelstoke Grizzlies.

Game MVP and Viper rookie Logan Geefs passed it out front from behind the net to set up the tying marker, with veteran centre Trevor Pickett also drawing an assist.

Forward Justin Mitchell got the Tier1 Vipers on the board in the first period when he roofed one past the Seafair goalie, with Kyle Clark and Patrick Dove getting the assists.

Pickett hit the back of the net, assisted by Curtis Sexsmith, with four seconds left in the period to make it 2-1 Vipers after 20 minutes.

Seafair scored twice on goalie Evan Campagnolo in the second period before Braydon Sophonow, from Sexsmith, tied it up going into the final frame.

Seafair scored a powerplay marker halfway though the third period to take the lead before Hendrickson’s dramatic tying goal.

The Vipers played North Shore Winter Club and Anchorage, Alaska Saturday with the playoffs slated to start Sunday.
