EUGENE, Ore. - The Eugene Generals (11-6-1) swept the Tri-Cities Outlaws (10-10-1) in a 5-2 win.
While the Generals remain tied with the Glacier Nationals for second place, tonight’s win demoted the Outlaws to fourth place in the standings.
The newest member of the Generals squad, goaltender Kevin Quinlan, had an impressive night in net in his debut performance between the pipes.
The Generals wasted little time to put the puck in the net.
Connor Bambico scored the Generals first goal of the game 1:20 into the first period. Cody Andersen and Stephen Soloway assisted Bambico’s goal.
Midway through the first period, the Outlaws struck back on a Generals power play. At 11:29, Brett Myer scored a short handed goal, tying the game 1-1.
The Generals responded appropriately to the Outlaws goal when Stephen Soloway lit the lamp for Eugene’s second time of the night 13:57 into the first period.
Austin Sullens was the only player on either team to score a goal in the second period. Sullens recorded his unassisted goal 10:52 into the period.
The Outlaws were determined to score early in the third period, and did exactly that. Almost two minutes into the third period, at 1:58 Outlaws forward Aaron Questad made it a one-goal game. However, the Outlaws would not score another goal.
Minutes later, on a power play, Bambico scored his second goal of the game 8:26 into the period. Bambico was assisted by Matthew Walton.
