Bombers Fall to Generals in Game 1

The Port Alberni Bombers dropped Game 1 of their Best of 7 series with the Oceanside Generals on Wednesday night 8-2 in Parksville.

The 2nd period proved to be the Bombers undoing on Wednesday.  Tied 1-1 after 20 minutes play, the Generals pounded the Bombers for 6 unanswered goals and outshot Port Alberni 27-3 in the period.  The Generals showed what made them the VIJHL’s top team during the regular season.

After going up 8-1, the Bombers got one back off the stick of Grayson Erickson to make the final score 8-2.  The other Bombers goal came from team MVP Chase Pacheco as he finished off a pretty 2-on-1 with Blake Power in the 1st.

Shots on goal in the 3rd favoured Oceanside 15-10, and the game finished 58-18.  Needless to say, Bombers goaltender Felix Plendl was busy on the night.

Oceanside was 2 for 6 with the man advantage while the Bombers were 0 for 4.

Game 2 goes in Port Alberni tomorrow night at 7:00 pm.  The box office will open at 4:00 pm.
