Red Deer Vipers top Copperheads

The Red Deer Vipers got back to their winning ways against the Coaldale Copperheads.

Red Deer had a modest four-game winning streak snapped on Wednesday against the Mountainview Colts, but bounced back with a 3-1 victory over the Copperheads Saturday.

Mack Differenz scored for the Vipers in the opening frame but the visitors responded with only nine seconds left in the period.

Justin Paarup scored the game-winning goal at 7:53 of the second and Ryan Vandervlis potted an empty-net goal in the third. Vandervlis finished the night with a goal and an assist.

Justin Anderson notched another win in the Vipers net with 25 saves.

The Vipers make the short trip to Blackfalds to take on the Wranglers on Jan. 22 before they host the Airdrie Thunder on Saturday.
