Weekend split leaves Oshawa Generals still mired in middle of OHL pack

Another weekend of one step forward and one step back for the Oshawa Generals, who are still trying to find their way in the new season under new coach Derek Laxdal.
The Gens started brightly with a 4-3 road victory over the Guelph Storm as rookie Beckett Sennecke continued his hot start to his OHL career with his fourth goal of the campaign, a snapshot that trickled behind Storm netminder Dixon Grimes midway through the third that stood up as the winner.
Luke Torrance on a deflection, Stuart Rolofs with his own rebound and Brett Harrison with a tap-in from a nice feed from Torrance supplied the rest of the Oshawa scoring.
Two nights later at the Tribute Centre the Generals couldn’t buy a goal as the visiting Kingston Frontenacs kept the game tight and capitalized on the few opportunities they enjoyed to win 2-0.
Adam Cavallin and Francesco Arcuri – with his eighth of the year – handled the scoring for Kingston while Mason Vaccari earned the shutout.
Oshawa is now 4-4-1 on the season, four points behind Kingston and Peterborough in the East and nine points in arrears of the 9-0 Ottawa 67s who are ranked ninth in the country and sure to move up a few pegs when the weekly rankings are updated Tuesday.
