Each of the three teams finished Day 2 of Vancouver Giants Training Camp with a win and loss. Friday afternoon at the Ladner Leisure Centre Team Black avenged an earlier 2-1 loss with a convincing 4-1 victory over Team Gray. Hunor Torzsok scored twice for Black while goaltender Trent Miner didn’t allow a single goal against for a second consecutive game. Darian Skeoch had the lone goal in response for Gray who earlier in the day defeated Team White 4-3.
Team Black jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first half of the game. Hunor Torzsok potted his first of two goals on the game near the mid-way point of the first half off a scrum in front. Moments later James Malm notched his first goal of the weekend off a quick snap shot from the high slot.
Black took that 2-0 lead into the intermission. Between the pipes Trent Miner turned aside every puck fired his way for Team Black marking the second straight game that he managed to do so. David Tendeck would relieve Miner for the second half of the game while Gray split their goaltending duties three ways between Todd Scott, Jacob Wassermann and Brett Murphy.
Very early in the second half Team Gray got on the board when 20-year-old Darian Skeoch joined the rush and wired home his first of the weekend.
Unfortunately for Gray that’s as close as they’d get. David Tendeck made a tremendous save off of Brad Morrison a few moments after the Skeoch marker to keep the game 2-1 and his teammates rewarded him promptly with two quick goals to move the game out of reach.
First it was defenceman Dylan Plouffe who registered his first of the weekend on a power play. Then the very next shift Hunor Torzsok raced down the left wing and labelled a shot up and over the goaltender’s shoulder for his second of the game and the day, ultimately sealing the 4-1 victory for Team White.
Day 3 of Giants Training Camp continues Saturday at the Ladner Leisure Centre with three more games taking place at 9:00 AM, Noon and 3:00 PM.
