Bombers fall 6-3 to Generals

The Generals opened the scoring late in the first, after the Bombers had a trio of power play chances that they failed to capitalize on. An extended scramble and several opportunities were stopped by Callum Tung, but Nolan Kehoe roofed a loose puck from the right circle with 26 seconds to play in the first. The Bombers responded immediately, as Easton Sandberg picked the top corner, far-side from the right point with just 3 seconds to play in the period, for a 1-1 tie after 20 minutes. Assists on the play went to Jaydon Merritt and Nathan MacDonald.

The Generals jumped out to a 3-1 lead before the second was two minutes old, on goals from Brendan Carlson just 35 seconds into the period, and Brady Van Herk at the 1:37 mark, with Aidan Cook assisting. The Bombers got one back on the power play 5:04 into the frame, as Jackson Payeur ripped a shot over the glove of Ashton Sadauskas off a faceoff on the power play in the attacking zone with Jaydon Merritt and Brady McIsaac assisting. The Generals answered with a power play of their own from a loose puck in the crease off a shot block that saw Brayden Ross tap it home to make it a 4-2 game at 9:19 of the second.

The Generals built their lead on the rush two minutes into period three as Evan Dyce made it 5-2. Carter Johnson scored on a wrap around to put them up 6-2 with seven minutes to play, before the Bombers completed the scoring with just 3 seconds on the clock, as Jackson Payeur scored his second of the game, again on the power play to make it 6-3 from McIsaac and Easton Sandberg.

Shots were 40-31 Generals, with Ashton Sadauskas earning the win while Callum Tung took the loss.

The Bombers next see action Friday night in GOLD RIVER, as they take on the Campbell River Storm in a neutral site game.
