After the Sunday morning’s retribution from the Melbourne Glaciers by taking Game 2 of the AJIHL weekend’s games between the Adelaide Generals and the Glaciers to the tune of 4-2, it was anyone’s game for the taking in Game 3. It would be the Glaciers to strike first 4mins into the game when Damon Parolin scored from Christian Pansino. A hooking penalty to Generals Nathaniel Benson was seen off by the Generals penalty kill unit. The Generals themselves were not able to capitalise of two 5-on-3 man advantages with Glaciers captain Jacob Haley (holding), Denis Levin (tripping) and Matthew Knox (tripping), so the score remained at 1-0 at the end of the period in favour of the Glaciers. Shots on goal were Glaciers 10 for 1 goal and Generals 5.
In the second period the Generals found their mojo and 3mins in Brad Chenoweth would get one past Glaciers big goalie Jakob Doornbos with an assist from Sebastian Smith (who scored another point in his debut in the AJIHL). Another 5-on-3 situation occurred at the 10min mark and again the Generals couldn’t find a way past the Glaciers defiant defence. Two mins later however the Generals got the go-ahead goal with Glaciers Elijah Sutton pinged for tripping through Adrenaline player Dylan Pope assisted by Andrew Chen. Two more penalties, one to Generals Nathaniel Benson (holding) did not result in a goal to the Glaciers. Shots on goal for the period were Glaciers 7 and Generals 6 for 2 goals in a very tight game.
The Glaciers set about pegging back the Generals 2 goal lead with some aggressive play in front of goal that say Generals goalie Jeremy Friederich hit the deck a couple of times but the Glaciers shits went wide much to the relief of the home town crowd. Nathaniel Benson would score an insurance goal at 13:34 with the assist from Dylan Pope making it a tough ask for the Glaciers. The Glaciers were not able to score despite penalties to Cameron Pope (late hit at 12:29) and Chenoweth (hooking at 9:12). The Generals dropping one game but coming away with 2 home wins after the 3-1 result. Shots on goal for the game were Glaciers 25 for 1 goal and Generals 18 for 3 goals.
