Generals Take Down Tomahawks

The Generals ended the five game stand with a 6-2 win tonight at Lane Events Center-Ice. The Generals are now 7-0 against the Tomahawks this season, and they will face Puget Sound two more times before the end of the 2009/10 NORPAC Regular Season.

“Its always tough to beat a team five games in a row,” Generals head coach Jay Miller stated. “I’m really happy we were able to come away with two points tonight, but we still have a lot of work to do. Right now we have to focus on River City, and putting together three periods of solid hockey.”

The first two periods of tonight’s game were played close, but the Generals were able to pull away in the third. The Generals entered the second period with a 1-0 lead, and entered the third period with a 2-1 lead. The Generals were able to score four consecutive goals in the third to put the game out of reach.

Ryan McDonald and Christian Merritt led the Generals with two points each. McDonald scored a goal and added an assist, and Merritt had two helpers on the night. Ryan Crow was able to score his first career Junior goal, and Trevor Ruiz, Brendan Weimer, Peter Mingus and Neil Holder each had goals. Arram Chinarian, Eric Watters, Brad Main and Rye Humphreys each had assists.
