Bombers Fall Flat Against Generals

The Port Alberni Bombers came into Saturday night’s game looking for some sweet revenge against the Oceanside Generals. After losing to them earlier in the week by a score of 6-0.

However, it did not go as planned. As the Bombers would be defeated once again by the Generals, this time by a final score of 6-2.

In the first period, the Generals would get on the board first with just over four minutes left. But with less than a minute to go, the Generals would add two more goals 32 seconds apart to head into the intermission with a 3-0 lead.

The positive for that period for the Bombers was that they outshot the Generals 15-12.

In the second period, the Generals would continue to add on to the scoresheet. As they would increase their lead by two to take a commanding 5-0 lead after 40 minutes of play.

And in the second period, the Generals outshot the Bombers 20-8.

In the third period, the Generals would get up to a 6-0 lead, but the Bombers would eventually get on the board.

The first Bombers goal was scored by Justin Osborne (3) off of a penalty shot to make it a 6-1 contest.

Less than six minutes later, Sam Davidson (4) would score to make it 6-2 with a little help from Nathan MacDonald.

However, that would be all the scoring in this one as the Bombers could not solve Generals goalie Aaron Kaner. Who stopped 28 of the 30 shots he faced.

The shot differential wasn’t as jarring as the second period, but the Generals did outshoot the Bombers 13-7. Which would make it 45-30 for the Generals overall in the shooting department.

Next up for the Bombers is a long homestand, where they will be playing their next 5 games at the Alberni Valley Multiplex.
