A first period offensive onslaught unleashed by the Lacombe Generals propelled them to a swift 8-3 victory over the Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs on Friday night.

Both the Generals’ Brett Robertson and Dylan Nowakowski recorded two goals each in the opening period.

Tanner Korchinski and Doug Jessey also found the back of the net in the frame, chasing Chiefs goalie Ryan Demharter, who gave up six goals on 16 shots before getting yanked for Devon Fordyce.

“Things were just going in and sometime’s that’s the way it goes. So you just keep throwing it at the net. Eventually that’s going to run out so take it when you get it,” said Brett Robertson.

Jordan Hoffman scored the Chiefs’ only goal in the period.

The Lacombe Generals scored early and often against the Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs on Friday night. Six first period goals chased Chiefs goaltender Ryan Demharter from the game.

Leading 6-1, Christopher Gerrie scored Lacombe’s seventh goal in the second period but the Chiefs responded with two of their own, from Aaron Boyer and Brendan Baumgartner.

Post-game, Generals head coach Sean Robertson talked about the need to respect their opponent. The Chiefs entered the contest with an 0-11 record but in his mind, outplayed his team in the second period.

“We’re playing against a team that’s been kicked a little bit. If we don’t prepare ourselves to be at our best, we could easily lose that hockey game,” Robertson said.

Ian Barteaux made it 8-3 for the Generals in the third period.

The Generals finished with 62 shots on goal. Chiefs goaltender Devon Fordyce stopped 44 of 46 after coming in to relieve Demharter.

Jacob Deserres started in net for the Generals and made 31 saves.

The Generals will visit the Stony Plain Eagles next Friday and before hosting the Chiefs again on Dec. 3.
