Generals falter in the third against Panthers

The Quality Foods Oceanside Generals kept the Peninsula Panthers within striking distance for two periods but in the final frame, they fell apart losing 5-2 on the road on Friday night.

After a scoreless first period, the Panthers got on the scoresheet first, 46 seconds into the second period on a power play. The Generals tied it up on Max Creighton’s marker, his tenth goal of the season, with Greyson Weme assisting on the play at 13:30. The Panthers regained the lead three minutes later but the Generals evened it up again in the dying seconds, scored by Landon Dziadyk from Trae St. Prieer and Braeden Young.

In the final period, the Panthers once again surged ahead at 2:30 and never gave it up. The Generals got into penalty trouble and the Panthers were able to score one on a man-advantage at 6:27, and late in the game netted a short handed goal at 15:51 to put the game out of reach for the Generals.

The Generals were outshot 33-20 and were 0-for-4 on power plays. Their record now stands at 11-16-1.

On Sunday afternoon, the Generals are back on the ice to face the Comox Valley Glacier Kings at 2:30 p.m. at Oceanside Place.
