The Generals put on brave face after overtime loss

The Quality Foods Oceanside Generals had to put on a brave face after losing 5-4 in double overtime to the Saanich Braves at Oceanside Place last Saturday night.

The Generals can find some comfort in earning another point but it could have been two points. They started well and led 3-2 at the end of the first period. After giving up a power play goal, the Generals came back to tie it up1-1 on Landon Dziadyk’s marker. That sparked the Generals offense as they net two goals in a row by Ethan Trampuh and Trae St. Pierre’s power play goal to give Oceanside a 3-1 lead. The Braves cut the gap to just a point late in the period.

In the second period, the Braves tied it up but St. Pierre gave the Generals the lead again 4-3. However, the Braves were able to square things 4-4.

No goals were scored after the third period forcing the 4-on-4 overtime tiebreaker. When that failed to produce a winner, three-on-three hockey ensued. The game looked like it was going to end in a stalemate, but the Braves were able to score with 36 seconds left to play and earned the win.

The Generals were outshot 39-33 by the Braves. Goalie Aaron Jakubowski had another strong outing stopping 34 of 39 shots.

The Generals will be on the road Friday, Oct. 13 to face the Comox Valley Glacier Kings at the Comox Valley Sports Centre at 7:30 p.m. The Generals return home on Saturday night, Oct. 14, to face the Campbell River Storm at Oceanside Place at 7 p.m.
