Kero collects shutout as Cents bury Vipers

Merritt Centennials grind out 1-0 win over Vernon Vipers in BCHL action Saturday night at Kal Tire Place.

Devin Kero recorded 35 saves for the shutout as the Merritt Centennials grounded the Vernon Vipers 1-0 in B.C. Hockey League action Saturday night at Kal Tire Place.

After weathering a strong opening period by the Vipers, the Cents got all the offence they would need as Gavin Gould cashed in the rebound off a point shot by Lumby’s Dylan Bowen in a second-period powerplay.

Vernon went 0-for-3 on the man advantage. This is the third time this season the Vipers have been shut out.

The 9-6-1-3 Vipers are third in the Interior Division, one point ahead of the 10-8-1 Centennials. However, just four points separate the first through fifth seeds.

Vernon continues a five-game home stand against the Salmon Arm SilverBacks (9-6-1-1) Friday at Kal Tire Place.

Check out Wednesday sports in The Morning Star for a full recap of Saturday’s action.
