Panthers face Islanders

Fan appreciation tonight at Panorama Recreation Centre

Peninsula’s Zack Smith wins a battle against an Oceanside Generals forward.

The Peninsula Panthers took on the Oceanside Generals last Friday night in a game that didn’t quite turn out as they had expected.

The Panthers played solidly in the first two periods and led the game 2-0, but things quickly turned around in the third period when the Generals’ Michael Fretz put his team on the board by scoring three unanswered goals. At the end of the third, Oceanside took the win 3-2.

“I thought our kids played hard and smart for the most part, but then in just a couple minutes we made several mistakes that cost the game,” said Panthers Coach Brian Passmore.

“It really is a pretty simple game, limit your mistakes if you want to win. We’ll be playing the Victoria Cougars in the first round of playoffs and we have to limit our mistakes if we want to win that series. We just can’t give up easy goals, we have to make teams earn the ones that they get.”

Before starting the first round of playoffs against the Cougars next week, the Panthers host the Kerry Park Islanders in their final regular season home game tonight (Friday) during Panthers Fan Appreciation Night.

The evening will feature the players coming out into the lobby at Panorama Recreation Centre during the first intermission to sign autographs for the young fans in attendance. The puck is set to drop at 7:30 p.m.
