McGauley Shines in Intrasquad Game

Tim McGauley had two goals and an assist in Sunday's
Intrasquad game.
  Third-year centre Tim McGauley had two goals and an assist to pace Team White to a 6-3 victory over Team Black in the Brandon Wheat Kings' intrasquad game on Sunday.

  Jayce Hawryluk added a goal and two assists for Team White with Quintin Lisoway, Eric Roy and Jesse Gabrielle also scoring for the winners.

  "It was a good camp, new guys come in all the time and it brings new energy," said McGauley, "It was real good, this camp, I thought.  It was one of the best ones I've been to.  These guys we have coming are real good players, and I'll real excited to start the season."

  "I think you want to work 110 per cent whenever you're playing.  I really don't have another gear, it's just fifth gear all the way," added Hawryluk, "I'm going hard as I can all the time.  You have to set an example for the kids that are watching out here about what it takes to play in this league."

  Colton Waltz, Brett Kitt and Kord Pankewicz did the goal scoring for Team Black with Brayden Billarney notching a pair of assists.

  Jordan Papirny stopped all 16 shots he faced in net for Team White before being replaced by 16-year old Josh Dechaine, who stopped 10 of 13 shots during the second half of the game.

  Logan Thompson stopped 22 of 24 shots and Evan Robert stopped 13 of 17 shots for Team Black.

  2014 first overall pick Stelio Mattheos played on a line with Hawryluk and Lisoway in Sunday's contest, contributing one assist to the Team White cause.

  "Just seeing the pace out there and seeing how strong guys are, how good their shots are and how fast they are, really shows how much work I have to put in to not just play, but to be a good player out there," said Mattheos.

  Mattheos will get an extended look as the 15-year old will stick around on the Wheat Kings' pre-season roster for at least the next week.

  Brandon did a similar thing with 2013 first round picks Nolan Patrick and Kale Clague last September, letting them play pre-season games before sending them back to AAA Midget for the balance of the season.

  Mattheos is expected to spend the 2014-15 campaign with the Winnipeg Wild of the Manitoba AAA Midget Hockey League.
