The 2017 Brandon Wheat Kings Training Camp has come to an end at Westman Communications Group Place.
Team Black built up a 6-0 lead by scoring three unanswered goals in both the first and second periods and cruised to a 9-2 victory over the Whites in the hockey club’s Annual Intrasquad Game, presented by Canad Inns Brandon Your Destination Centre.
Veterans Tanner Kaspick, Stelio Mattheos and Baron Thompson scored two goals each for the Blacks, who outshot Team White 51-32.
Also scoring for the winners, who received an 18-save performance from veteran netminder Logan Thompson, were Sam Anderson, Kolton Shindle and Linden McCorrister.
Veteran defenceman Kade Jensen and 16-year old Jonny Hooker had three assists for the winners, while Mattheos and McCorrister each chipped in a pair.
Gunnar Wegleitner and Lynden McCallum scored in a losing cause for Team White.
Sunday’s game brings the curtain down on this year’s camp. The club will now begin preparations for their 4-game pre-season schedule that begins Friday night in Brandon against the visiting Regina Pats.
Tickets to both pre-season games as well as the 2017 Brandon Sun Home Opener go on sale at 10am Tuesday at the Keystone Centre box office.
