The visiting Northeast Generals rolled to an 8 – 0 over the Titans last night. Despite the lopsided loss, both Titans netminders – Donovan Alfama and Colin Freitas – played extremely well having to come up with several grade A saves. In all, the goalies combined to stop 84 of 92 shots. Yes, 92 shots.

Murphy scored the game’s first goal at the 11:36 mark of the opening period. Peyton Felix doubled the score a minute and a half later. Braeden Kennedy scored with seventeen seconds left in the first to make it 3 – 0.
