Right from the onset, the Generals displayed their determination, with D’Amato striking early in the first period at the 5:11 mark, setting the tone for the rest of the game. Lockhart and Roobroeck provided the assists, setting the stage for an intense battle between the two teams.

As the game progressed into the second period, the Generals continued their offensive onslaught, with Torrance finding the back of the net at 7:51, extending Oshawa’s lead to 2-0. Danford and Sennecke contributed crucial assists, further solidifying the Generals’ dominance.

In the final period, Oshawa’s Punnett sealed the deal with a shorthanded empty-net goal at 19:01, extinguishing any hopes of a Barrie comeback and securing the Generals’ advancement to the next round of the playoffs.
