Gens Hang onto Top Nords

March 2, 2022

The Northeast Generals and Maine Nordiques squared off for game two at the Colisee of a home and home series. The Nordiques and Gens matched up on Monday where the Gens beat the Nords 7-6 in a shootout. The Nords also were playing their fourth game in six days.

The first period got started with both teams looking to find the edge on each other. The Nordiques got on the board first with Jack Parker scoring the first goal of his NAHL career; less than three minutes into the game. The first was decided in the neutral zone and the Generals got some zone time and found the back of the net with less than three minutes left. 1-1 after the first.

The second period was back and forth and Avery Sturtz was tasked to make some great saves. The Generals were able to get into the Nords zone and fling a wrist shot home to take the 2-1 lead. The Nords would then get a power play but wouldn’t be able to convert. Theo Thrun would force a turnover and get it to Aidan Connolly who slid it to Zion Green for a back door goal to tie it at 2 after the second period.

The Nords would get a short lived power play to begin the third but wouldn’t be able to convert before it turned to a 4 on 4. The Nords would then have to kill off a power play with seven minutes to go, the Nords killed it off but in the same rush as the Gens power play was expiring they would score to take the lead. The Nordiques tried to tie it up but wouldn’t get many chances offensively to do so and the Gens would hang onto win 3-2.

The Nordiques continue their Homestead March 10th and 11th facing off against a familiar foe in the New Jersey Titans who they recently shutout.
