ROANOKE, Va. - The Roanoke Express, missing three of its top four scorers, got a quality performance from goalie Jordan Willis to beat the sagging Greensboro Generals 3-1 Thursday night at the Roanoke Civic Center.
Willis stopped 37 shots, offsetting the loss of center Mike Omicioli and wing Vern Fiddler who were called up to the AHL for the weekend, and center Mike Peron who was suffering the effects of whiplash.
"It's good to get a win," said Willis (3-3-0). "Like (coach) Perry (Florio) said, it's a challenge. You can throw up your hands and say 'Oh God,' or you can accept the challenge and battle through it."
The three missing forwards accounted for 19 of Roanoke's 57 goals and 27 of its 94 points entering Thursday's game. But the Express got goals from Duncan Dalmao, Pete Gardiner and Terence Tootoo, negating a second-period goal by the Generals' Rob Sandrock.
The Generals (5-9-2) return home Saturday to face Macon in a 7:30 p.m. game at the Greensboro Coliseum.
