INNISFAIL — If Sunday’s exhibition contest was any indication, the Innisfail Eagles-Bentley Generals rivalry is alive and well.

The Generals posted a 2-1 win over the hosts in the final game of the Eagles preseason tournament, an outing that featured plenty of big hits and excellent goaltending at both ends.

The game went to a shootout after the clubs were deadlocked after regulation time and a five-minute, three-on-three overtime session failed to produce a winner.

Kyle Bailey and Curtis Austring produced shootout goals for the Gens, while Pete Vandermeer was the lone Eagles shooter to beat Bentley netminder Dustin Butler.

Andrew Bergmann scored a first-period goal for the Eagles and it held up until defenceman Graeme Craig connected for the visitors at 6:55 of the second period, beating goalie Dan Dunn to the short side with the Generals on the power play.

Butler finished with 36 saves through 65 minutes of play. Dunn stopped 30 shots for the Eagles.

Innisfail finished with a win and a loss after defeating the Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs Saturday.

The Stony Plain Eagles won twice during the weekend, beating the Chiefs and edging the Generals 6-5 in overtime.
