Panthers trounce Generals at home

Friday night the Panthers will bare their claws against the Victoria Cougars

Peninsula Minor Hockey product Jordan Law (#21) comes out from behind the Oceanside Generals net looking to dish off for a scoring opportunity while Oceanside Generals' Tristan De Swardt does his best to thwart the attempt.

The Peninsula Panthers managed to split a pair of games over the weekend but the club is already looking towards this Friday night when they will bare their claws against the Victoria Cougars.

Last Friday evening at the Panorama Recreation Centre the Panthers pounded the visiting Oceanside Generals by a 4-1 count. Peninsula wasted no time getting started, with two goals under their belts before the game was eight minutes old. Scoring for the locals was Tate Coughlin with a pair. Matt Sheeran and Connor Logan added singles. Joey Karrer blocked 16 of 17 Generals attempts in picking up the win.

On Saturday, the Panthers travelled to Comox for a game against the Glacier Kings and lost 5-3. It was the third meeting between the two teams and the first loss playing against the Kings for the Panthers.

Leading the way in the scoring department was Jackson Skerratt who tallied a pair while Coughlin chipped in with one. Stephen Heslop blocked 23 of 27 shots directed his way.

“We’d really like to go on a roll and we’d like to start on Friday against the Cougars,” said Panthers’ hockey operations manager Pete Zubersky of the upcoming game against Victoria.

“We had a lot of players out for various reasons on the weekend but we should have a pretty full lineup on Friday night and I know our kids will really be up for this one.”

Zubersky said he expects a large crowd turnout for the game against the Cougars Friday night at Panorama Recreation Centre. The puck is set to drop at 7:30 p.m.
