Game 5 of Round 2

In Penticton at the South Okanagan Events Centre the Salmon Arm Silverbacks scored goals 14 seconds apart to defeat the Vees 4-2 and win the Interior Conference Semi-Final Series four games to one to advance to the Interior Conference Finals. Leading 2-1 the Silverbacks scored 83 seconds into the third period followed by another tally 14 ticks later to take a commanding lead.

Earlier Salmon Arm jumped out to a 2-0 advantage with a goal at 6:00 in the first period and another at 5:58 into the second stanza.

The Vees two markers came 2:44 after the Apes' second goal and 2:36 after the fourth tally.

Devin Muller got the Silverbacks' first goal along with his first of the postseason after taking a pass in his own end from Kevin Mills and following his own shot's rebound to the crease where the puck came from off the glass behind the net.

Morgan Zulinick scored his first of the pl'offs to make it 2-0 when Brad Reid fought off a check behind the net and found him wide open in front.

Brett Knowles made it 3-1 with his fifth of the second season after a Charlie Vasaturo dumpin got past the goaltender and Dave Killip quickly centered the puck in front of the net for a quick one-timer.

Finally Jarryd Ten Vaanholt capped the scoring with his third by intercepting a clearing attempt and beating the goalie cleanly to the stick side.

The Silverbacks now await to see who they will play for the Ryan Hatfield Trophy and also where the Friday March 18th Game 1 opener will take place either in Vernon or in Salmon Arm if Westside advances.
