The Quality Foods Oceanside Generals were eliminated in the first round of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey playoffs.

Down 3-1 in their best-of-seven playoff series, the Generals’ hopes of prolonging their season ended when they lost 4-1 to the host Victoria Cougars in Game 5 on Thursday night.

The Generals put up a gallant fight but were not able to deter the Cougars who led 1-0 after the first. The Generals came back in the second and scored at 3:57, netted by Ryan Ignace. But it didn’t take long for the Cougars to regain the lead at 5:18 and added another at 16:55 to surge ahead 3-1. In the final period, the Cougars put the game out of reach when they got an early goal at 1:06.

Despite losing in the first round of the playoffs, the Generals had a solid season overall.
