Struggling Generals drop a pair on the weekend

It was another weekend without a victory for the Save-On-Foods Oceanside Generals.

It was another weekend without a victory for the Save-On-Foods Oceanside Generals.

The Generals have made a lot of changes in the last month, including the addition of a new coach and a new general manager. After blowout losses this past weekend to Campbell River and Victoria, the Generals have only one victory in the 10 games since coach Dan Lemmon and GM Lou Gravel took over the reigns of the local Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League club.

The Generals managed only 12 shots on Victoria goaltender Connor Beauchamp in a 5-0 loss to the league-leading Cougars on Saturday night at Oceanside Place. At the other end of the rink, Generals goalie Evgueni Makarski stopped 32 of 37 shots fired his way.

On Friday night in Campbell River, Nanaimo Minor Hockey product Jonah Pearson scored the Generals’ only goal in a 6-1 loss to the Storm. Pearson’s goal, his third of the season, came in the third period with the Storm already leading 5-0.

Qualicum Beach resident Liam Giroux started the game in goal for the Generals but was replaced by Makarski late in the second period. The Generals were out-shot 39-21 in the game.

The Generals have two victories, a tie and an overtime loss in 24 games this season. Their next game is at home to the Westshore Wolves on Saturday night at Oceanside Place (7:30 p.m. faceoff). The Wolves are third in the VIJHL’S South Division with a record of 8-11-3-2.
