Woodring Earns Shutout as Generals Overpower River City

Eugene Generals goaltender Dylan Woodring was able to stop all 32 shots the River City Jaguars (7-12) threw his way as the Generals toppled the Jaguars 6-0 at Valley Ice Arena in Beaverton, OR on Thanksgiving. The Generals started the scoring early, and never looked back as they pulled themselves within two points of first place in the NORPAC Pacific Division (the Generals have two games in hand over the Seattle Totems).

“We played one of our most complete games of the season tonight,” Generals head coach Jay Miller stated after the game. “We still have a lot of areas that we need to work on, but we’re improving. We need to forget about the big win last night, and play with the same focus and intensity that got us the result.”

The first and third periods won the game for the Generals last night. The Generals scored three goals in each period to begin and end the game on high notes. The Generals outshot the Jaguars 40-32 in the game, and the scoring output was fairly spread out. The Generals only had two players with multiple points against the Jaguars.

Tyler Poulsen led the way with two goals and an assist, and Brad Main had two assists. Brendan Weimer scored his first career Junior goal, and Christian Merritt, Neil Holder and Ryan McDonald added goals. Trevor Ruiz, Blake Bishop, Kyle Kennedy, Brayden Lahti, Sean Park and Dylan Woodring had assists in the contest.

The Generals will face River City tonight and tomorrow night at Lane Events Center-Ice in Eugene at 7:35 PM. The games will be broadcast on EGHN. For more information on upcoming games or EGHN please visit eugenegenerals.com.
