Greensboro News & Record - February 9, 2002



MACON, Ga. - David Whitworth and Chris Brassard scored two goals apiece to lead the Greensboro Generals to a 4-3 win over the Macon Whoopee on Friday night.

The Generals (16-25-5) spent most of the night building a comfortable cushion, but had to overcome a furious Macon rush to preserve the victory in the final minutes.

Greensboro went up 4-1 in the third period on Brassard's power play goal. But the contest was far from being finished.

With 1:25 left, Macon (26-18-8) reduced the deficit to 4-2 on Alex Zinevych's controversial goal.

Initially, it appeared that Generals goalie Frederic Henri delivered a spectacular glove save of Zinevych's shot. But referee Lance Dysievick ruled that Henri's glove was over the goal line and in the net when he made the save, so the score was allowed.

Thirty-one seconds later, the Whoopee closed the gap again when Casey Kesselring scored with 54 seconds remaining. After that, the Generals reasserted themselves and Macon never mounted another scoring threat.

In the first period, the Whoopee had five power play chances, but each time, Henri's defensive handiwork kept them off the scoreboard.

The Generals took a 1-0 lead on their only power play opportunity of the period at the 10:26 mark. Whitworth deflected a shot from the blue line on a pass from Rob Sandrock. The Whoopee forced a 1-1 tie in the second period on Paul Giblin's goal. Later in the second, Greensboro took the lead for good on Whitworth's second score at the 9:30 mark.

Greensboro closed out the scoring in the second period when James Desmarais hit Brassard with a backhand pass, who promptly scored the Generals third goal on a backhand shot with 14:57 to go.
