Wheat Kings' Main Camp Continues



Two goals in the final five minutes were the difference Saturday morning as Team White scored an 8-6 victory over Team White during day two of the 2012 Brandon Wheat Kings' Training Camp at Westman Communications Group Place.

Tristen Elder's second goal of the game turned out to be the game winner and veteran Daniel Asham added an insurance goal three minutes later for the Whites, who bounced back from Friday night's loss to Team Gold.

A 15-year old right-winger from Kinistino, Saskatchewan, Elder was one of three players chosen by the Wheat Kings in the sixth round of last spring's Western Hockey League Bantam Draft. Asham meanwhile is entering his second season with the Wheat Kings and is coming off a rookie year that saw him score four goals and 13 points in 62 games.

Right-winger Richard Nejezchleb, who was chosen in the first round of June's Canadian Hockey League Import Draft, scored twice and set up two others for the winners on Saturday morning while Team Black got goals from six different players including veterans Alessio Bertaggia and Eric Roy. 16-year old John Quenneville meanwhile had a goal and an assist in a losing cause.

Following Saturday morning's scrimmage, the WHL club plans to release a number of players in preparation for tonight's final contest before Sunday afternoon's annual Intrasquad game at Westman Place.

Puck drop Saturday night is 6pm and the game is open to the public. Sunday's Intrasquad game is at 2pm and there will be a $3 admission.

was there a Gordie Howe hat trick in the morning scrimmage? Did that kid that fought late in the game (the one that scored the first goal) - did he also have an assist in the game?
