Intelligence Report - Issue # 18
WEEK ENDING: February 10, 2002

The Generals have currently played the fewest games in the East Coast Hockey League at 46. That will change this week. Greensboro has a grueling five game week ahead of them, with three of them on the road. The Generals visit the Roanoke Express Tuesday night at 7:00, then return home to battle the Pee Dee Pride on Wednesday at 7:00. Thursday is the only day the Generals don't play, but they'll take an eight hour bus trip to Trenton instead to face the Titans on Friday night at 7:35. From there, it's back to Roanoke for a 7:30 contest on Saturday night. The Generals wrap the week up with a Sunday afternoon contest against the Macon Whoopee at 3:00 at the Greensboro Coliseum. All games can be heard on Radio Disney, WCOG-1320AM. You can also now hear the games online by logging on to

2/6 GREENSBORO 2, CHARLOTTE 4 - The Generals found themselves down 3-0 midway through the second period, but they made a comeback when it was least expected. Chris Bell and Chris Brassard both scored shorthanded to make the score 3-2, giving the Generals momentum heading into the third period. They could not sustain the pressure, however, as the Checkers notched an insurance tally and clamped down defensively to hold Greeensboro at bay.

2/8 GREENSBORO 4, MACON 3 - This game was not nearly as close as the score would indicate. The Generals' David Whitworth notched a power play goal for a 1-0 edge entering the second period. After the Whoopee tied the game 1-1, Whitworth struck again to put the Generals ahead to stay. The rest of the Greensboro offense was supplied by former Whoopee Chris Brassard. He padded the lead to 3-1 in the second period, then notched a power play goal early in the third period for a commanding 4-1 advantage. The game stayed that way until the final 90 seconds, when Macon scored twice to make things interesting. Frederic Henry earned the victory in net, with a sparkling 43 save effort.
