Dylan Robertson scored a power-play goal with 2.1 seconds remaining in the third period and the Banff Academy Bears pulled out a 5-5 Heritage Junior B Hockey League tie with the Red Deer Vipers Monday at the Arena.

Kolton Gillett’s power-play marker gave the Vipers a 5-4 lead with 3:34 remaining, but the Bears rallied for the late goal with goaltender Mykhailo Rudenko on the bench for a two-man advantage.

Tyler Kohut, Brad Van Grinsven, Justin Corbett and Jonathan Finnigan also scored for the 5-0-3-1 Vipers.

Brenden Mandrusiak stopped 29 shots for Red Deer, including a pair of third-period breakaways. Rudenko made 32 saves for the 1-10-1-1 Bears.

The clubs were tied 1-1 after one period and 3-3 after 40 minutes.

The Vipers return to action Sunday at 3:30 p.m. against the host Blackfalds Wranglers, then entertain the Three Hills Thrashers the following night at the Arena.
