Magee makes move for roster spot

Brandon Magee scored twice and added two assists as Team Black recorded a 7-1 win over Team White in the final intrasquad game of training camp, played Wednesday night at Prospera Centre.

The game included only five players who logged ice time for Chilliwack last season (Magee, Cole Holowenko, Jesse Pauls, Brendan Persley and Steven Hodges), surrounded by 40 youngsters looking to make a lasting impression.

Black owned the first period, but it was White’s Matt Martin opening the scoring 2:46 in. Brennan Clark got the primary assist, throwing the puck on net from behind the goal-line. Holowenko lost sight of the puck and Martin poked it in.

Black took just over a minute to tie on a goal by Magee. Will McNamara did the spade work, crashing the crease on a drive off the right wing. Magee cleaned up the rebound, jamming the puck past keeper Matt Gibney.

Luke Harrison gave Black the lead at 8:46, scoring off another scramble. With Persley in the box for roughing, Magee scored his second of the period on the power play, sending his team to the locker room with a 3-1 lead.

Chilliwack’s Clayton Lake was the star of period two, scoring once and nearly scoring another. At the five minute mark, Magee forced a turnover below the faceoff dot and threw a shot on net. Regan Santoro couldn’t control the rebound, and Lake finished the play with a cheeky behind-the-back backhand shot.

Just over a minute later, Lake took a pass in the low slot and clanged a shot off the right goal post.

With time ticking down in the middle frame, Taylor Crunk added to the Black lead. Zane Jones earned the assist, flying down the left wing to put a shot on net. The rebound dribbled across the crease to Crunk, who buried it into the wide open cage.

Black led 5-1 through 40 minutes and wrapped up the scoring on third period goals by Derek Falloon and Alex Laird.
