Weekend Preview: Two Teams, Four Home Games
- Created: 08 February 2012
EUGENE, Ore. - The Eugene Generals (17-15-2) will repeat last week’s road trip, but this time they will play the Seattle Totems (26-4-2) and the West Sound Warriors (12-22-1) at home.
There will be four games this week.
The Generals are scheduled to play the Totems on Thursday at 5:35 p.m., and the Warriors Friday and Saturday at 7:35 p.m. and Sunday at 5:35 p.m.
Last weekend, the Generals lost to the Totems and were victorious over the Warriors.
The Generals have been unable to beat the Totems this season.
Seattle has four players with six or more points in the five games they have played against the Generals this season. Cameron Hoffman has nine points (five goals, four assists) in his five starts against the Generals. Kristian Ophus (four goals, two assists), Ricky Doubrava (four goals, two assists) and Parker Eliot (one goal, five assists) each have six points in the five games against the Generals.
In their last game against the Generals, Hoffman had three points (two goals, one assist), and Ian Beckstrom had three points (three assists).
Parker has 79 points (24 goals, 55 assists), Doubrava has 73 points (29 goals, 44 assists), and Hoffman has 62 points (31 goals, 31 assists) on the season.
Unlike the Totems, the Warriors have lost every game they haved play against the Generals this season.
In the four games West sound has played against Eugene, two players have managed to score four or more points: MacKenzie Crews has six points (five goals, one assist) and Kai Wilkins has four points (two goals, two assists).
Most recently, in their last outing against the Generals, Crews scored four points (three goals, one assist) and may prove to be a handful for the Eugene defense.
Despite the Warriors record, they have been able to muster up plenty of offensive power from their top players. The Warriors have five players with 37 points or more. These five players; Josh Twietmeyer (22 goals, 36 assists), Brian Farkas (17 goals, 34 assists), Bryan Mueller (six goals, 39 assists), Wilkins (23 goals, 19 assists), and Crews (21 goals, 16 assists) combine for a total of 66.2 percent, or 233 of the 352 points scored by the Warriors this season.
All of these men will likely be marked by Generals players as soon as they step onto the ice to take a shift.
