Owens lifts Las Vegas past Victoria

Wranglers keep rolling with sixth straight victory

Forget Victoria, the Las Vegas Wranglers are the true kings of salmon.

The Wranglers' stormed into Victoria this weekend and completed a four-game sweep of the Salmon Kings with a 1-0 overtime victory Sunday to capture their six straight win.

Victoria native Sean Owens stunned a hometown crowd of 5,835 at the Save On Foods Memorial Centre when he poked in a rebound from a Justin Taylor shot for the game-winning goal with just 16 seconds remaining in overtime.

Wranglers' goalie Kevin Lalande made 20 saves to improve to 9-8-2 on the year.

Las Vegas (24-18-4), which has now won eight of its last nine games, is now 5-1-1 against Victoria (29-15-5) this season.

The Wranglers return to the Orleans Arena to face the Phoenix Roadrunners Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. (20-21-3).
