Vipers Name Captain and Assitants

Thursday, September 10, 2015

A day before the 2015-2016 season begins, the Vernon Vipers begin the trek by naming their leadership group.

At the helm of the team is second year Viper Colton McCarthy. His assistants will be Mac Ferner, Riley Brandt, and Liam Finlay.

McCarthy, a Salmon Arm product played 35 games with the Snakes, tallying 10 goals and 15 assists. The 6'1 190 pound forward uses his size and strength as well as a special finess with the puck to be an imposing player for opponents.

As for the assistants, new Viper Mac Ferner dons an "A" and is also the only 20 year old of the leadership group. The local product brings a ton of experience to the Vipers playing over 100 BCHL regular season games. Riley Brandt brings power, speed and intensity as well as leadership from a nice first season with Vernon as well as a National Championship run 2 years ago with the Beaver Valley Nitehawks. Last, but certainly not least Liam Finlay, who led the Vipers in scoring in a fantastic rookie campaign rounds out the group.

For more information please call the Viper Office at 250-542-6022.
