The short-handed Quality Foods Oceanside Generals could not hold a 3-2, second-period lead Sunday and fell 6-3 at Kerry Park in Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League play.

It was the fifth straight loss for the Gens (5-14-0-1), who were without injured forwards Mitch Cook, Sebastian Powsey, Logan Savard and Bobby Jo Love.

The Generals outshot the Islanders 30-13 in the opening period and led 3-2 after Brandon Roberge scored his second goal of the game, a power-play tally, at 14:07 of the second period.

Kerry Park got the equalizer just over a minute later, and went on to finish the game with three unanswered goals while ending the day tied in shots on goal, 43-43.

The Generals were 2-for-6 on the power play, ending an 0-for-12 drought with the man advantage that spanned the previous five games.

Stratton Picket put the Generals on the board and tied the game 1-1 with a power-play strike off assists from Landon Dziadyk and Ethan Sundstrom at 16:32 of the first period.

After Kerry Park regained the lead on a goal early in the second, Roberge knotted the score with an even-strength goal assisted by Matthew Rokosh at Oceanside took its first lead at 9:42. His second goal, assisted by Rokosh and Caleb Griffin, gave the Gens their only lead of the game.

The team has three chances this week to snap its losing skid, beginning Thursday with a visit to Victoria. After traveling to face the Comox Valley Glacier Kings Saturday night, the Generals return home Sunday to face Peninsula at 2:30 p.m. at Oceanside Place Arena.
