The Weyburn Red Wings wrapped up training camp with the annual Red & White game Monday afternoon. The intrasquad game saw Team White, coached by Tucker Neuberger and Steven Wilson, beat Team Red, coached by Brock Appleyard and Darrell Romuld, 7-1.

Team White had seven different players find the back of the net, going up 6-0 by the end of the second period.

Team Red starting goaltender, Weyburn’s Jaxon Robertson, played well, facing a number of shots, and high-quality chances. He was relieved by Carter Phair halfway through the second period.

At the other end, Jake MacLennan started the game for the Team White and held Team Red off the scoresheet for his 30 minutes in the crease. Cody Levesque took over halfway through the second and allowed the single goal late in the third.

The scoring started in the first period, when Cole Woodliffe, returning for his third year with the club, scored just past the halfway mark of the period. Team White made it 2-0 just before the period ended, when Noah Wozney, coming into his second season with the club, scored a power play marker with 1:11 on the clock.

Team White kept up the pressure in the second, scoring four goals. The first was just three minutes in when 15-year-old Ethan Ernst beat Robertson for his first of the game. Ernst will more than likely be spending the season with the Notre Dame Midget AAA program.

Just after the halfway mark, summer signing Jordan Kazymyra put the puck past Carter Phair to make it 4-0. Less than three minutes later, it was 5-0 when Jessie Young scored on Phair, and Calder Newson finished the scoring in the second period with 5:17 left on the clock.

Ty Brown broke the shutout bid by Levesque and MacLennan with 11:39 on the clock in the third, but the momentum came too little, too late. The final goal of the game was scored late in the third, when Derick Smith beat Phair with a slap shot from just inside the blue line, giving Team White a 7-1 victory.

“It had its good moments, and some kids really stepped up,” Red Wings head coach Wes Rudy said after the match-up. He watched the game from the press box, making notes on the performances of the players.

“Other kids were maybe tired from the weekend, and didn’t just quite play to their potential, but overall, I think it was a very entertaining game.”

Rudy spent the evening conferring with the coaching staff, as well as the players while narrowing down the roster heading into the preseason schedule. The busy week for the Wings will see them play four games in five nights. It begins Tuesday with a home game against the Notre Dame Hounds at Crescent Point Place. Wednesday night, the Wings host the Waywayseecappo Wolverines of the MJHL. Friday night, the Wings will travel to Estevan to face the Bruins, who then come up to Weyburn Saturday night to wrap up the preseason.
