Glacier Kings give Gens the cold shoulder

Three unanswered goals in the second period proved to be the difference Saturday night.

Luciano Somerville continues to be a force for the Generals this season.

Three unanswered goals in the second period proved to be the difference Saturday night, and the Glacier Kings still have the Generals’s number as they grabbed a 5-2 win.

The Comox Glacier Kings have won both their games against the Oceanside Generals so far this hockey season. Comox was 9-0 last year head-to-head including the playoffs.

In Comox Saturday night for their only Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League game of the week, Kyle Yamasaki (Josef Chase, Travis Briggs) staked the Save On Foods crew to a 1-0 lead.

The Glacier Kings drew even, and went ahead for good with two more goals for a 3-1 lead after 40 minutes.

Yamasaki (Noah Russi) scored in the third period and Luke Tully (Yamasaki, Briggs) made it interesting when he cut it to 4-3 with just under seven minutes remaining. Comox salted the win with a power play marker at 14:35.

The Gens’ were 1-for-7 on the PP the ‘Kings 2-for-10. Comox outshot Oceanside 34-33, Kolding Larson took the loss in net.

Head coach Jason Dubyna said he was dissapointed in the final outcome.

“Our guys had a good first period and made a strong push to get back in the third, but (we) had some untimely penalties. It was a fairly physical game, it was a pretty good game.”

Beyond the play of their leading scorer Yamasaki, Dubyna also had props for the efforts of Luciano Somerville and his starting goalie.

 

GAME ON

The Generals are back in Comox on Friday for another run at the ‘Kings and return home to Oceanside Place to take on the 2-5 Peninsula Panthers (7:30 p.m. start).
