Generals clobbered by league-leaders Bucs

The Quality Foods Oceanside Generals weren’t able to stop the red-hot Nanaimo Buccaneers, who ended up with an 8-2 victory for their seventh win in a row.

The Generals kept the game close in the first period and ended the frame just two goals behind in front of a partisan crowd of 360 at the Nanaimo Ice Centre, Sept. 5. But in the second, the league-leading Buccaneers found their groove and kept the Generals scrambling on the defensive end.

Jackson Davis was able to put the Generals on the scoreboard at 7:32 but they were unable to stop the onslaught. They ended up trailing 7-1 after 40 minutes.

In the third the Generals got a break and scored a power-play goal, netted by Lucas Vanroboys at 3:03. But the comeback bid was shortlived due to undisiciplined play. The Buccaneers were able to score one more goal and were stymied offensively as they too had to kill several penalties.

Greyson Weme, Andre Sutter and Ryan Rae-Arthur each had an assist. Jacob Sweet started at the pipes for the Generals but after giving up five goals in the second period was relieved by Aaron Jakubowski.

The Generals were outshot by the Bucs 36-32 and were 1-for-7 on the power play. Their league record now is 3-5-1.
