The Red Deer Vipers won twice as the season winds down in Heritage Junior B Hockey League play.
With three games left in the year, the Vipers knocked off the Ponoka Stampeders Friday and then edged the High River Flyers 6-5 in overtime Saturday.
Red Deer now sits second in the HJHL Northern Division with a 23-11-1 record and 47 points. The Sylvan Lake Wranglers, we did not play on the weekend, have a 21-13-2 record and 44 points, just three back for the Vipers in second. They had two games left on the year.
In Saturday’s win, Tanner Scott notched the overtime winner at 4:15 of overtime. Jace Paarup deked past a Flyers defender and after he was stopped on his initial shot, Scott cashed in the rebound to close out the victory. Paarup had three assists in the win.
