VANCOUVER, Wash. - The Eugene Generals (13-15-1) were able to accumulate two more points in the standings with a 4-1 win over the Tri-Cities Outlaws (14-17-1) in Kennewick, Washington.
In the midst of a seven-game stretch on the road, the Generals picked up their second win in as many days. The Generals defeated the Vancouver Vipers 6-2 the previous night.
Both teams were even after the first period as neither team could score in the first twenty minutes. The Generals outshot the Outlaws ten to eight during the period.
A little more than a minute into the second period at 1:12, the Generals scored first on a power play goal by Defenseman Kyle Ruchas. Matt Walton and Hunter Hartman were there to record assists on the power play.
Up 1-0 going into the third period, the Generals were able to increase their lead by scoring the next three goals. Daniel Gomez connected at 3:16 with assists to Evan Carter and Ben Sera; Connor Hoernlein provided another insurance goal a minute later at 4:21 on an assist from Hartman. Gomez recorded his second score of the night at 16:28 when Sera and Quentin Holmes helped set-up the team's fourth goal of the night.
Generals Goalie Cody Foster almost had his fourth shutout of the season, but those plans were thwarted when Wyatt Duncan scored the Outlaws' only goal of the night at 18:37. Christopher Helms provided the assist on the play.
After Friday's victory, the Generals will look to increase their two-game winning streak when they travel to play the Vipers in Vancouver Saturday night. The Generals will then travel to West Sound and Bellingham to play two games apiece in the next two weekends.
The Generals will play their next home game on February 4th when they host the Vipers at the Rink Exchange. The game will be 2 for 1 Tuesday where fans can purchase two tickets for the price of one regular ticket.
