Silverbacks snap Vernon Vipers’ home winning streak

Salmon Arm prevails 3-0 in front of 2,400 fans Friday night at Kal Tire Place, the Vipers' first home-ice loss in 10 games

Second period deflections by forwards Shane Danyluk and Thomas Plese, and 31 saves from goalie Angus Redmond, were enough to lift the visiting Salmon Arm Silverbacks to a 3-0 win over the Vernon Vipers in BCHL action Friday night.

The tilt between the two arch-rivals drew 2,408 fans to Kal Tire Place. The teams finish the back end of a home-and-home set Saturday night at the Shaw Centre.

Taylor Maruya scored with less than three minutes left to round out the scoring for the Silverbacks, who snapped a three-game losing streak.

The Vipers, who outshot Salmon Arm 31-22, including 11-3 in the final frame, had a modest two-game winning streak stopped, but it was also the Snakes’ first home-ice loss in 10 games.

See Sunday’s Morning Star for more details on Friday’s contest.
