EUGENE, Ore. - The Eugene Generals (2-4-0) defeated the Vancouver Vipers 6-3 on the team’s 9th Annual Breast Cancer Awareness Night.
This was a special night for the Generals as the team donned their signature pink jerseys and commemorated the fight against breast cancer with a ceremonial puck drop between the two captains.
The game was scoreless until the 14:12 mark of the first period when Cisco Yslas notched his first goal of the season on an assist from Cody Dettman.
Twenty-two seconds later at 14:34, Hunter Hartman tied the game at one apiece with assists from Matt Walton and Dans Berzanskis.
At 16:16, Vancouver regained the lead when Dettman connected on an unassisted goal to give his team the advantage going into the first intermission.
Late in the second period, the Generals tied the game at two at the 17:38 mark. Connor Bambico, who recently rejoined the team and played in his first game of the season, connected on the tying, power play goal. Walton and Hartman provided the assists on Bambico’s goal.
The Generals took the lead for good at 6:31 in the third period when Kyle Ruchas lit the lamp on an unassisted goal.
