AJIHL - ADELAIDE GENERALS v SYDNEY WOLFPACK
Game 2 for the Generals was another great game to watch at a fast and furious pace, with the boys getting into stride early and Jordan Brunt popping his first with help from Riley and Grubb, then Jordan Geyer sniping one to take a 2 - 0 lead over the Wolfpack! About a minute later, Jake Knott from the Wolfpack gets one back on an assist from Koop & Ross taking the teams to the break at 2 -1 Generals after both teams killed off penalties to keep the game close.
Generals started with their usual pace and after Riley and Benjamin took a two minute rest McGuiness slotted one home in a 4 on 4 assisted by Folly and Fabijan to stretch the lead, then a minute and a half later Jordan Brunt pops his second from Clark and Grubb, the boys were on a roll! Tom Roberts from the Wolfpack picked up an interference penalty giving the Generals a power-play advantage and 18 seconds in, Ted Fabijan gets the third goal in three minutes of play for the Generals to take the howl out of the Wolfpacks’ play!
The Wolfpack crew weren’t done yet, late in the period Roberts redeemed himself slipping one past Charlie Wragg on an assist from Jake Knott during a power-play on Riley’s penalty and then Alex Ross put another one past Wragg with the assist to Zvonicek & Elias, showing there was fight in the old dogs yet and they were still in the game!
The third period was very even both ways until Jordan Brunt picked up his third to give him a hat-trick on the day and assisted by Grubby and Riley who both finished with 3 assists for the game, Jake Riley picked up the last goal for the Generals assisted by Folly and McGuiness to finish the game off with a 7 - 3 win for the Generals.
“We just need to stick to our game plan, hammer the net and play hard D” said Coach Boyle. “We’re not the biggest team out there, but we are fast and have plenty of legs to keep us going and pressure the other teams” Looking forward to the next game at 5:45 tonight, so come on dawn and show some support for the local boys as they head towards the finals!!
