2018 Orientation Camp Recap
This past weekend, the Generals hosted their 2018 Orientation Camp which saw players from the 2017 and 2018 Priority Selection take part in the camp as well as free agent invites. Team Red and Team White would participate in fitness testing and compete in two scrimmages over the course of the weekend.
Saturday afternoon's scrimmage saw Team Red and Team White face off for the first time. Red had a dominating first period putting three goals on the board. Through the second, Red and White exchanged goals with Red continuing to hold onto a commanding lead. Team White made a push in the third to make things close, but Red would come out on top taking the first game by a score of 5-3. Team Red saw Zach Paputsakis play the entire game, where Team White split their goalie time between Matthew Sbrocca and Ryan Polidori.

Red continued to build on their lead with two goals in the second and Red goalie Paputsakis was perfect through two.
