The Guelph Storm opened Day Two of 2017 Training Camp with the first scrimmage of the week between Team Red and Team White on Tuesday morning at The Sleeman Centre.
Storm veteran Garrett McFadden opened the scoring just seconds into the affair with a blistering slap shot from the point.
Team White continued to add pressure as Matt Hotchkiss, Tag Bertuzzi and Alexei Toropchenko all found twine before the end of the period, giving Team White a 4-0 lead.
It didn’t take long for Team Red to break the goose egg, as Quinn Hanna fired a wrist shot past Daws, two-minutes into the period.
Team White quickly responded on Hotchkiss’ second goal of the game. Cedric Ralph would then add onto Team White’s lead scoring on a penalty shot.
With six minutes left to go in the middle frame, Ralph converted on a breakaway for his second of the game.
After 40-minutes of play, Team White led 7-1.
Team Red had a strong start to the third period, as James McEwan scored to get one back for Team Red.
That would be as close as they would get, as Hotchkiss and Anthony Aguanno scored to secure the 9-2 win for Team White.
Nico Daws (opening 30-minutes) and Nick Haas (closing 30-minutes) manned the goal for Team White, while James Walker (opening 30-minutes) and Richard Ledek (closing 30-minutes) were between the pipes for Team Red.
