QUICK STEAL-Ryan Carter of the Sylvan Lake Admirals takes off after the puck Saturday night during the game against the Bentley Generals.

Bentley crushes Sylvan Lake at Admirals’ home opener

The Sylvan Lake Admirals, it would appear, have some more work to do.

Playing their first game of the Chinook Hockey League season, and their first game as a senior AAA men’s team, the Admirals opened their season this past weekend with a 9-2 loss to the reigning provincial champion Bentley Generals.

The Generals put the Admirals in a hole early, with Travis Brigley and Jason Lundmark tallying first period goals to put the visitors up 2-0 after one.

Just 1:13 into the second period, the Generals made it 3-0 when former Red Deer Rebel Karey Pieper took a pass from Lundmark and beat Admirals starter and former Grande Prairie Storm netminder Jordan Ramstead.

Kurtis Ross got the home squad on the board just 37 seconds later to make it 3-1 Bentley.

Three more powerplay goals by Bentley, including two from Scott Doucet, made it 5-1 Generals after two.

At the 4:55 mark of the third period, it was 6-1 Generals after Pieper chased Ramstead from the Admirals net with his second of the game, and Bentley’s fourth powerplay marker of the contest.

Kevin Dziaduck took over from there and didn’t fare much better, giving up Brigley’s second goal of the night at 10:47 of the third period.

Chevan Wilson would make it an 8-2 game at 12:53 of the final period before Brigley completed the hat trick at 13:27 to make it 9-2 Bentley.

Brigley finished the night with four points, while Joel Henituik, who set up both Admirals’ goals, was the top scorer for Sylvan Lake with two assists.

Bentley’s powerplay was lights out in the game, scoring four times on six chances, while the Admirals went 0-3 with the man advantage.

The Admirals return to action this Friday, heading to Innisfail to battle the Eagles, while the Generals have the week off and will next host Stony Plain on October 23rd.
