Vipers lose in game three to Mountainview

The Red Deer Vipers fell behind for the second time in as many nights, but couldn’t conjure a comeback in game three with the Mountainview Colts.

In the Heritage Junior B Hockey League North Division final, Mountainview took a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series with a 6-3 win Saturday night.

The Vipers allowed two goals in the first period, before Brett Hoppus got Red Deer on the board at 8:10 of the second.

The Colts responded 27 seconds later and again 14 seconds after that to open up a 4-1 lead.

Bailey Lawson cut the deficit to two late in the second and Spencer Yeats scored early in the third to bring the Vipers within one.

The Colts extended their lead midway through the final frame just as a Vipers’ penalty expired and added an empty net goal late.

Logan Linnell added another two assists to his playoff total in the loss for Red Deer.

Branden Bilodeau made 33 saves for the Vipers in the loss.

Red Deer will host the Colts on Tuesday with puck drop set for 8 p.m. at the Collicutt.
