Gens go 1-1

Taylor Grobowski led the charge with a hat trick and a helper, and Oceanside’s Save On Foods Generals rallied for an exciting 5-4 win on home ice over the Peninsula Panthers Saturday night.

“It was awesome — just what the hockey doctor ordered,” Generals’ GM and head coach Dave Johnston said Sunday.

The Panthers came to town with a record of 8-6-1; the Gens were 6-10-1.

“Taylor played great, he was definitely an impact player,” Johnston said of his forward.

The Nanaimo native was a late cut from the Clippers early in the season, and now leads the team in scoring with 13 goals and seven assists for 20 points in 13 games.

Johnston also had props for Noah Russi, Dylan Haugen and Luciano Somerville “who were also really strong.”

Winners of four of their last six games, the Generals showed no quit Saturday night and gives the coaching staff something to build on this week.

The Generals lost, 6-2, in Saanich to the Braves on Friday.

The Generals travel to Victoria on Thursday to tangle with the Cougars and return home to Oceanside Place Saturday (7:30 p.m. start) for a rematch against the Braves.
