ï¿½We are struggling staying healthy so I was pleased with our performance especially in the first period,ï¿½ said head coach Chuck Kennedy after the game. ï¿½We went away from what was working in the first period and werenï¿½t as strong on the puck or in our zone the rest of the game. We need to stay on our game plan all 60 minutes, but hopefully the boys learned from this experience.ï¿½
The Generals will travel to River City to play the Jaguars for their second game of the weekend on Saturday the 15th.
