Generals fall in game one of Senior AAA provincial final

Eagles 6 Generals 4

Game one of the Chinook Hockey League final delivered exactly as advertised with 10 goals aside and it was the Stony Plain Eagles who captured the 6-4 win.

A lengthy 21-day layoff proved costly for the Lacombe Generals in the opening game of the Senior AAA Provincials at home.

Lacombe did open the scoring in the first period on a goal by Eric Schneider before the teams traded goals throughout the second period.

For the Generals Don Morrison and Eric Galbraith scored while Riley Miller and Spencer McAvoy scored for Stony Plain in the middle frame.

Former Edmonton Oiler Ryan Smyth tied the game up early in the third at three and the Eagles took their first lead of the game 4-3 with 13:48 left in the period on his second of the night.

After the Generals had a goal waved off late in the final frame, Miller scored his second goal and the game winner to make it 5-3 Stony Plain.

The Generals cut the deficit to a goal after Ryan Kinasewich scored with just 2:09 left in the

period but the Eagles added their sixth of the game 28 second later.

Vincent Marozzi made 26 saves in the win for the Eagles.

Smyth was also injured in the third on a questionable late, blindside hit and the Eagles captain tweeted Monday that he is home resting with his family and is hoping for a speedy recovery.

Generals forward Kyle Sheen received a five-minute match penalty for elbowing on the play.

The series resumes in Stony Plain Tuesday night.
