The 2013 Allan Cup host Bentley Generals battled back from a 3-0 deficit Sunday but fell 5-3 to the visiting Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs in Chinook Hockey League play.

The Chiefs sped out to a healthy lead on goals from Aaron Agnew, Mike Fiorillo and Chris Giacobbo through 22 minutes, before the Generals pulled even thanks to goals from Chris Neiszner, Curtis Austring and Scott Doucet after two periods.

The visitors, outshot 28-17 through 40 minutes, outshot the Gens 13-10 in the final frame while getting goals from Brian Woolger and Brett Holmberg, who scored into an empty net with 29 seconds remaining.

Blake Grenier stopped 35 shots as the winning netminder. Travis Yonkman and losing goaltender Andrew Penner combined to make 25 saves at the other end.

On Saturday, the Generals invaded Innisfail for a meeting with their old coach, Brian Sutter, and came away with a 7-1 win over the Eagles.

Dustin Moore tallied twice for the Generals, who took control of the contest with four unanswered second-period goals. Also scoring for the Gens were Neiszner, Matthew Stefanishion, Kyle Sheen, Jason Lundmark and Travis Brigley.

Cody Cartier scored a late goal for the Eagles, who got a 20-save outing from Colin Stebner. Penner stopped 29 shots for the win.

Innisfail was a 6-3 winner over the host Sylvan Lake Admirals Friday, as Graham Telford and Dan Shermerhorn each tallied twice and Cartier and Ryan Kallis also scored for the Eagles. Brandon Knelsen, Branden Gay and Aaron Boyer replied for the Admirals.

Innisfail netminder Jasen Kipling stopped 28 shots. Andrew Williams made 38 saves for Sylvan Lake.
