Oceanside falls in OT to Campbell River; beats Nanaimo in VIJHL action

The winning streak is over – but the point-gathering run continues.

The Quality Foods Oceanside Generals saw their seven-game win streak come to an end on Friday, as they dropped a 4-3 decision in a shootout to the host Campbell River Storm.

But the Generals still picked up a point in that contest, and followed that with a thrilling 5-4 overtime home win Saturday against the Nanaimo Buccaneers.

The Gens sport a 20-5-2 record on the season, good for a 12-point bulge atop the storm in the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League’s North Division.

Against Campbell River, Oceanside held a 3-2 lead late in the third period, but the Storm tied it up with just over three minutes to play in regulation, then won in the shootout.

Will Norman (2) and Brady Kay scored for the locals, with James Brendeland making 35 saves in goal.

Josh Pederson had three points, including the tying goal, for the Storm.

Aaron de Kok made 38 saves to pick up the netminding win.

Against Nanaimo, Oceanside scored three times in the third period, setting the stage for some heroics from Trey Boylan, who netted the OT winner.

Boylan finished with two goals, with Dylan Heathcoate scoring twice and helping on two more, and Landon Dziadyk scoring once and dishing out three assists.

Cedric Reichsteiner made 27 stops for the win between the pipes.

Brendan Rogers had two goals and an assist for the Bucs, with Chase Heslop and Hunter MacDonald also finding the net.
