Campbell River Storm topple Oceanside Generals 6-3 in home victory

Storm goals scored by six different players

The Campbell River Storm continue to sit atop the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League’s (VIJHL) north division.

The Storm won their only game this week 6-3 over the second-place Oceanside Generals Friday night at the Rod Brind’Amour Arena.

Campbell River scored three unanswered goals in the first and second periods (Noah Fladager, Quinn Messer, Pearce Messer) before Oceanside got on the board at 7:12 of the second frame with a short-handed goal.

The Storm increased their lead again at 15:11 of the second with a goal from Kyle Jennings.

The Generals tried to claw back in the third period and were able to nearly even the score at 4-3 following two power play goals.
