Powell River, BC – The Vernon Vipers scored three unanswered goals in the third for a 5-3 win over the Powell River Kings on Friday night at the Hap Parker Arena.

The Kings end week 8 of the BCHL season 1-1 after a 4-1 victory over the Prince George Spruce Kings the night before.
Levi Glasman scored his eighth and Dawson McKay scored his sixth earlier on. The Powell River Kings tied the game twice before taking the lead in the third.
