Their scoring chances weren’t plentiful, but the Salmon Arm SilverBacks made the most of the ones they got in Saturday night’s 3-2 overtime win over the Vernon Vipers at Wesbild Centre.
Josh Bowles buried the OT winner off a rebound 1:53 into extra time to give the ‘Backs their first B.C. Hockey League win in four games.
The Vipers outshot the Gorillas 40-23, but had trouble solving third star netminder Adam Clark, who turned in a 38-save showing.
Mike Roberts and Aaron Hadley tallied for the Snakes, who led 1-0 after one period.
Troy Petrick, on a 5-on-3, and Jeff Kennedy, on a buzzer beater, clicked for Salmon Arm in the second period.
