VERNON - The Vernon Vipers evened the record last night with a win against the Yorkton Terriers.

Monday night's game began with an early 0-1 lead for Vernon in the first period and it appears to have fueled their confidence. They scored four more early in the second, but Yorkton wasn't going out without a fight.

The Terriers slid four past the goalie in period three. It looked like Yorkton was in control, but the Vipers saw an opportunity in the final minute for one more.

The Vipers won, 6-4. 

Vernon, now at 1-1, plays game seven against the 2-0 Daughin Kings tonight. This is the first time the two teams have faced each other since the 2010 RBC Cup in Manitoba, with the Vipers coming away with an 8-1 win and their second straight national championship.
