Generals dominant in 5-1 win

The Lacombe Generals scored twice on a four minute man-advantage late in the second period to sink the Stony Plain Eagles 5-1 in game five of the Senior AAA provincial final in Lacombe.

Eric Scheinder tipped home a wrister from the point and Eric Galbraith potted his second of the night on a rebound less than a minute-and-a-half later.

Galbraith now has 10 goals in nine playoff games this season for the Generals.

Myles Bell continued the onslaught early in the third with his ninth goal in 10 playoff games.

Riley Sheen added another, while Lacombe was on a five-minute power play in the third.

The Generals commanded the play for the majority night and held the Eagles to just four shots in the first period.

Kraymer Barnstable may have had his shutout broken late in the third period but with 5:09 left in the frame, he made a highlight reel save diving across the crease to get his paddle on a sure goal. Barnstable finished the night with 24 saves.

The Generals have a chance to close out the series in game six Saturday night in Stony Plain.
