The Red Deer Vipers forced game seven in their Heritage Junior B Hockey League North Division final with Mountainview Friday night.

Red Deer exploded with four goals in the third period to close out a 7-1 win over the Colts in a must-win game six at the Collicutt.

Spencer Yeats and Logan Linnell scored in the first for Red Deer to open up a 2-0 lead, while the Colts responded with their only goal of the night early in the second.

Yeats added his second of the night midway through the frame, and completed the hat trick at 7:56 of the third.

Dalton Angeltvedt and Damien Chopek had power play goals in the final period and Bailey Lawson also added a marker.

Branden Bilodeau made 26 saves in the Red Deer net for the win.

The Vipers will travel to Didsbury Saturday to play the final game of the series. Red Deer has lost all three road games in the series so far, including a 4-0 shutout in on Wednesday night.
