In a close back and forth series that encompasses the true essence of a final round in playoffs, the SilverBacks have now tied it all up at twos with a 3-1 victory over the Vipers.
The series will be going back to Vernon for Friday night's game, which will force one of these two teams to take the lead, even if it's not for long.
After a night of equal opportunity both the SilverBacks and Vipers were left with 25 shots up on the board. The difference? Salmon Arm capitalized on three of those 25 while Vernon was only able to squeak one through for their efforts.
First star of the night went to Salmon Arm goaltender Bryan Gillis for his game-breaking 24 stops.
Second star Keenan Desmet had a huge night for the SilverBacks opening and closing the game with a pair of goals, and both times getting a little help from Conor Morrison.
The Vipers' only goal of the night came from Braden Pimm who now has eight points in playoff action.
The Vipers and SilverBacks will meet at least two more times, starting Friday night at the Wesbild Centre in Vernon.
