Generals avenge loss in sinking Islanders

Oceanside stop two-game losing streak; will face Braves next on the road

The Quality Foods Oceanside Generals got even with the Kerry Park Islanders, scoring a slim 2-1 win in double overtime on on the road Sunday, Dec. 2.

It was sweet revenge for the Generals, who four nights earlier allowed a win to slip from their grasp in a 4-3 home loss to the Islanders. Sunday’s victory halted a two-game slide and came one night after they were shut out 6-0 by the Campbell River Storm at Rod Brind’Amour Arena Saturday night.

On Sunday, the Generals had to overcome a one-goal deficit after the Islanders scored the lone goal of the first period. Oceanside equalized on a goal by Brady Kay in the second period. It remained tied 1-1 at the end of the third. The teams couldn’t settle it until the 3-on-3 second overtime, when Cole Amado scored a breakaway goal at 1:10 to give the Generals the 2-1 victory.

Oceanside goalie Jacob Sweet was again key in the win as he stopped 42 shots to earn the win at the pipes and his 9th of the season. He earned the second star of the night.

On Saturday night in Campbell River, the Generals kept it close in the first period but in the dying seconds the Storm scored to grab a 1-0 lead. Then, 53 seconds into the second period the Storm scored again and went on to pour in four more unanswered goals.

Sweet provided the only highlight for the Generals as he made 41 saves of the 47 shots he faced. He earned the top star of the night.

On Nov. 29, the Generals hosted Kerry Park and seemed poised for a win while leading 3-2 with five minutes left to play.

But two sloppy defensive plays led to back-to-back goals by the Islanders, who skated off with a 4-3 win.

The Islanders opened the scoring but lost their momentum as they committed several penalties in the first period. The Generals made them pay by scoring two power play goals, courtesy of Brodie Smith and Ryan Rae-Arthur.

Things settled down a bit in the second, but it was the Islanders that equalized at 6:29. Less than a minute later, Andre Sutter put the Generals ahead again, 3-2, and it stayed that way until the last five minutes of the third when the Generals gave up the two heartbreaking goals that flipped the final result.

The Generals will hit the road again this week to face the Peninsula Panthers at Panorama Recreation Centre on Dec. 8. They return home on Sunday, Dec. 10, to face the Comox Valley Glacier Kings at 2:30 p.m.
