EUGENE, Ore. - The Eugene Generals (2-4-0) and the West Sound Warriors (7-1-0) will face off in a Friday night showcase at the Rink Exchange.

The Generals were dominant last Friday in their 11-1 win in Vancouver. Ben Sera and Hunter Hartman each had hat tricks while four other players had goals as well.
Wearing their pink jerseys last Saturday, the Generals broke through with four goals in the third period to give them the 6-3 win. Hartman had two goals and two assists while Dans Berzanskis and Matt Walton recorded three points each. Chris Pritchard won in his first start at goalie for the Generals.

The Warriors had twelve different players record points in their Friday night win against the Outlaws. Peter Mingus had four assists while Ivan Bondarenko scored a goal and recorded two assists of his own.
Last Sunday, the Warriors suffered their first defeat of the season when they travelled to play the Bellingham Blazers during the day. Both teams went back and forth, with the game being tied at three going into the final period of play. The Blazers scored two in the period to give the Warriors their first loss.
