Travis Dunstall scored in the second overtime period and the Bentley Generals edged the host Stony Plain Eagles 4-3 Saturday to grab a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven Alberta senior AAA hockey championship series.

Curtis Austring’s power-play marker with 3:23 remaining in the third period looked like the winner, but Scott Drewicki forced overtime with a goal at 19:51.
