Generals sink Islanders, 3-2

Third-period goal lifts hosts in first of back-to-back weekend games

The Quality Foods Oceanside Generals scored a narrow 3-2 win over the Kerry Park Islanders at Oceanside Place on Friday night.

It was an evenly contested game that saw the score tied 2-2 at the end of the first period. The Generals had to come from behind twice after giving up two power play goals to the Islanders. Lucas Vanroboys evened things up 1-1 at the 11:53 mark and, after the Islanders regained the lead on the man advantage, Oceanside was able to tie it up before the period ended when Ethan Trampuh scored with a second left to play.

Things turned a bit chippy in the second period, with a total of 13 penalties meted out. Both sides had equal chances to score on the power play but none found the back of the net. The score remained tied 2-2.

In the final frame, the Generals got the break they needed, scoring first early, netted by Brandon Hannibal at 1:56 which turned out to be the winning goal.

Generals’ goalie Jacob Sweet earned the win between the pipes, turning away 28 of 30 shots. The Generals outshot the Islanders 48-30.

Oceanside improved its record to 3-4 entering Saturday night’s game against the league-leading Campbell River Storm at the Oceanside Place.

Hannibal earned the first star of the game with Logan Archer getting the third star. Second star went to Islanders’ Chase Anderson.
