The Lacombe Generals came out of game two of their best of five series against the Innisfail Eagles with yet another win on Sunday, February 24th at the Gary Moe Auto Group Sportsplex.
It was a bit of a slow start for the Generals where the Eagles took the lead for the first two periods of the game. Ending the second period, the Eagles took a five-minute penalty and game misconduct that created an opening in the third for the Generals catch up on the scoreboard. The second period ended with a 2-1 score for the Eagles, but that didn’t stop the Generals.
In the third, the Generals came back to the ice with fresh energy where they scored five consecutive goals leaving the game at a score of 6-2. Shots on net were 38-33 for the Generals.
Goals were scored by Eric Galbraith, Dylan Nowakowski, two from Kyle Stroh, and two from Billy Marshall.
Billy Marshall commented on the game, “We weren’t disappointed with our first two periods, I think we just realized that we had more to give. We decided to push it a little bit more.”
Speed is a major asset for the Generals, and one they determined to use to their advantage in game one.
“In this league, there are some bigger, older guys and we have some young, quick guys that can expose that just playing fast in the way of hockey. It’s sometimes tough to keep up with that,” said Marshall.
The Generals will be going to Innisfail for game three where they could claim the series with another win. The game is on March 1st at 8:30 PM.
