VIJHL: Generals draw even with Glacier Kings after thrilling 3-2 win in double-OT

Best-of-seven series tied 2-2; Oceanside hosts Game 5 tonight

It’s now a best-of-three.

Brady O’Brien scored two goals, including the game-winner in double overtime, to lift the Quality Foods Oceanside Generals to a crucial 3-2 win against the Comox Valley Glacier Kings in Game 4 of their opening-round Vancouver Island Junior Hockey league playoff series Tuesday in Comox. The best-of-seven series is tied at 2-2.

The Generals got off to a flying start when team leading scorer and VIJHL top forward Carter Johnson scored just 30 seconds into the opening frame.

Oceanside extended their lead to 2-0 when O’Brien scored just past the midway mark in the second. The Glacier Kings cut the gap in half as Caileb Berge got one past Generals goalie Ashton Sadauskas.
