Eugene, OR – The Eugene Generals (6-2) came back from two one goal deficits tonight at Lane Events Center-Ice to defeat the Tri-City Titans (1-7) 3-2. The Pacific Division second place Generals are now eight points behind the division leader Seattle Totems, and will travel to Mountlake Terrace, WA next Friday and Saturday to face the Totems.
“The game was closer than I would have liked to have seen, but again I have to give credit to our team for battling back,” Generals Head Coach Jay miller stated. “It was a hard earned win, and a good two points.”
Both of the Titans goals came in the first minute of the first and second periods, but the Generals were there to answer back each time. First, it was Joe Myers assisting Carl Lehtola 8:27 into the first period, then it was Lehtola and Kyle Mills assisting Michael Schlagel on the power play 13:21 into the second period. Tyler Poulsen would get his first point of his Generals career when he and Michael Schlagel assisted Eric Watters 3:03 into the third to ice the game for the Generals.
