The Generals experienced deja vu Saturday night when they took on the Peterborough Petes at the Ajax Community Centre for the Generals’ third exhibition game. After defeating the Petes 5-1 on Thursday in Peterborough, the Generals did the same Saturday night, coming out on the winning side of a 5-1 game.
Michael Dal Colle, the Generals’ 2012 1st round pick, started things off half way through the first when he scored on Peterborough net minder Michael Guigovaz off a pass from Colin Suellentrop. It would be the only goal of the period, but it was hardly all the action as there were a number of penalties and a fight.
Peterborough tallied the next marker when Nick Ritchie scored, but Oshawa was not about to let the game go 1-1 into the intermission and responded with two goals before the end of the period. Emerson Clark scored on the power play and Bradley Latour added another goal half a minute later. It was 3-1 for the Gens going into the third.
Oshawa owned the third period, scoring the final two goals of the game. Scott Laughton struck at the half way marker and Michael Dal Colle tallied on the power play near the end of the period to raise the score to 5-1 for the Generals.
Oshawa took home all three stars, the first going to Michael Dal Colle, the second to Colin Suellentrop, and the third to Kenny Appleby. The Generals out shot the Petes 57-29.
