The Michigan Mountain Cats lost to the Flint Jr. Generals on home ice at the Farmington Hills Ice Arena last night by a score of 5 to 1.
The first period was scoreless, until with just 17 seconds left on the clock, Flint's Joshua Kestner flipped a shot past Mountain Cat goalie Jordan Wood to take a one nothing lead.
In the second period, the Jr. Generals bore down and controlled play scoring three more unanswered goals to take a four to nothing lead and forced a net-minder change by The Mountain Cats. Schuyler Ferguson replaced Jordan Wood in the net at the 5:24 mark of the second period. The Mountain Cats finally lit the lamp at 10:06 of the second period with a pretty power-play goal by Zach Bourcier. Jacob Bearss restored Flint's 4-goal lead just six minutes later by scoring the last goal of the night, finding open net on Cat goalie Schuyler Ferguson.
Although Flint controlled much of the third period, good play by Mountain Cat defense and a few big saves by goalie Schuyler Ferguson kept the Jr. Generals off the scoreboard.
There were a total of 23 penalties called during the game. The Mountain Cats finished with a total of 10 and Flint with 13. Flint faced a total of 26 shots on net during the game and the Mountain Cat net-minders saw 38 on the night.
