The Valley Wood Remanufacturing Vipers outlasted the Kamloops Blazers 8-5 in Atom Development A hockey league action Sunday at Valleyview Arena.

Erik Pastro (2), Taryk Filipuzzi (1+1) and Cosmo Wilson (1+1) led the Viper attack with JJ Milne, Logan Killingbeck, Riley Cormier and Deagan McMillan adding a goal each.

Chase Hobenshield, Jonathan Reynolds, Zack Milne and Gunner Nyberg chipped in with assists.

Austin Seibel was solid, making a couple of all-planet glove saves.

“The boys came ready to play today and jumped out to the early lead,” said head coach Trevor Seibel. “We lost focus for a couple minutes and it cost us a couple of goals but we were able to regroup and hold on for the win. The boys are starting to work as a team and their hard work is being rewarded.”

The Venom visit the other Kamloops entry this Sunday. Taylor Wilson and Mark Pastro are Valley Wood assistant coaches.
