Generals Unable to Come Back
- Created: 17 November 2006
Eugene, OR – The Eugene Generals (11-9) were unable to come back tonight after going down 3-0 against the Tri-City Titans (8-13) tonight at Lane Events Center-Ice. The Generals were almost able to come back from a 5-2 deficit with two goals late in the third period, but just couldn’t get it done in the end. The Generals remain in third place in the NOR PAC Pacific Division, but the Puget Sound Tomahawks are hot on their trail along with the Titans who have won five in a row.
“We held the momentum for most of the game, but just couldn’t get the puck in the net,” Generals Head Coach Chris Hartly stated tonight after the game. “On the other hand, the Titans were able to capitalize on almost every opportunity they had.”
The big players tonight for the Generals were Ryan Schank (2 G), Michael Frei (2 G), Steven Slattery (2 A), and Garrett Bossert (2 A). Schank started the scoring for the Generals 14:04 into the second period. Frei added another just two and a half minutes to put the Generals within one. The Titans came right back, however, as they put two goals past Generals goaltender Nick Maynes in the next minute.
After the Titans fifth goal of the game Maynes was pulled in favor of Dylan Woodring. Woodring kept the Generals in the game saving all fourteen shots he faced in the remainder of the Game. The Generals were almost able to get back into the game in the third period when Schank and Frei tallied their second goals of the night with less than five minutes remaining in the game. That was not the case, and the Generals continue to hover around .500.
The Generals will face the Titans again tomorrow night at 7:35 at Lane Events Center-Ice. The game will be broadcast on GiTV. For more information on upcoming games or GiTV please visit eugenegenerals.com.
