The Generals played three games this weekend, winning them all and snapping a three game losing streak. In the three games, the Gens scored a total of 12 goals.
Oct. 18 @ Peterborough Petes
The Gens entered their first game of the weekend looking to end a three game losing streak against the rival Petes in Peterborough.
The first period against the Petes was quiet as both teams went scoreless. However, everything changed in the second when Eric Henderson scored his fifth goal of the season with an assist from captain Jack Studnicka.
Henderson was then followed by Danyk Drouin, who scored his first of the year with an assist from Nando Eggenberger to make it 2-0 at the end of the period.
Henderson then opened the third period with his second goal of the game, giving him six on the season, with assists from Serron Noel and Matt Brassard.
Cole Fraser then scored the lone goal for the Petes, making it 3-1.
This wasn’t enough however, as Studnicka would add one more to the score sheet, giving him four so far this season, and giving Henderson an assist on the play for his third point of the game to bring the score to 4-1.
The game ended with the Gens winning 4-1, and Henderson was awarded the first star of the game after scoring two goals and an assist.
Oct. 19 @ London Knights
After snapping their losing streak against the Petes, the Gens went on to London to take on the Knights at Budweiser Gardens.
Rookie Dylan Robinson opened the scoring in the first, getting his first goal as a member of the Gens. He was assisted by Eggenberger and Brassard.
The Gens scored quick in the second period, getting their second goal of the game only 1:51 in. The goal came from Eggenberger, his fourth of the season. He was assisted by Mitchell Brewer and Robinson.
The third goal for the Gens came from Studnicka on a penalty shot, and his fifth of the 2018-19 season. The Gens would finish the second with a 3-0 lead over the Knights.
The Knights came out strong in the third, scoring two goals to bring themselves within one. That was all they would get however, as Henderson would score his seventh of the season to give the Gens a 4-2 lead, which is where the game would end.
Eggenberger was the first star of the game after scoring once and getting an assist.
Oct. 20 vs. Peterborough Petes
The Gens were at it again against the Petes on Sunday, but this time it was on their home turf.
The first period was relatively uneventful until there was only around 40 seconds left and Noel scored his eighth of the season with assists from Danil Antropov and Studnicka.
The Petes would respond quickly in the second period, with Brady Hinz scoring to tie the game.
However, the Gens would respond with another goal of their own, as rookie Tyler Tullio would score his first goal to give the Gens the lead. He was assisted by Henderson on the play.
Cole Resnick then scored his first of the season with assists from Giovanni Villati and Nico Gross to give the Gens a 3-1 lead at the end of the second.
In the third, Noel would score again to bring his total to nine on the season. He received an assist from Eggenberger.
The rest of the game would slide on by as no more goals were scored, giving the Gens the 4-1 victory, and bringing their winning streak to three in a row.
After scoring his first goal of the season, Tullio was awarded the first star of the game.
The Gens hope to continue their winning streak next weekend in Hamilton against the Bulldogs on Oct. 26, and then at home against the Kitchener Rangers on Oct. 27 at 7:05 p.m.
