Pats 2012 Training Camp Day Two
Mid-Day Summary
Session Summary:

Scrimmage One (Red 10 vs. Grey 3)
The nerves and of Friday night seemed to be out of both teams’ systems, but it was Team Red looking more awake in the early going.  Red raced out to a 6-0 lead and never looked back in a 10-3 win over Grey.

Goal Scorers
Red: D. Schioler, A. Brooks(2), C. Harrison, R. Heidt, M. Fortin, E. Donald(2), R. Cole, C. Burston
Grey: M. Popowich, B. Reagan, B. Kallis

Who Stood Out?
After an unremarkable Friday, Dane Schioler came alive for the morning of Day 2.  He scored a goal, three helpers and was in the first fight of camp in Team Red’s win.

It was a tough morning for Team Grey.  Once again, the diminutive Liam Finlay was impressive while on the other side of the size spectrum, Brady Reagan picked up his first goal of camp.

Quotes from the Rink
Liam Finlay on his camp so far.  “I’m getting to know the camp more.  The first game, I wasn’t playing so good I don’t think.  It was a faster pace and I had to get used to it.  I think it has helped me so far, I’ve gotten to know it a bit more I’m doing a bit better as I go.”

Scrimmage Two (Blue 6 vs. White 3)
Offensive skills came to the fore in Team Blue’s 6-3 victory over Team White in the second scrimmage of the day.  Morgan Klimchuk and Chandler Stephenson teamed up on a beautiful give-and-go goal while Lane Scheidl showed off some of his offensive flair.  Tempers started to boil over with plenty pushing and shoving after the whistle and one fight in the scrimmage.

Goal Scorers
Blue: C. Stephenson, M. Klimchuk, P. D’Amico, D. Stevenson, J. Rodewald, R. Kruper
White: L. Scheidl, C. Gay, D. Hunt

Who Stood Out?
Lane Scheidl is making a strong push to claim one of the overage spots on the team.  He potted a great goal for Team White in the second period and nearly converted after a slick toe-drag into the slot in the third.

Team Blue fed off energy from Dyson Stevenson’s strong game.  He was one half of the fight, chipped in with a goal and was in the collective face of Team White the whole scrimmage.

Quotes from the Rink
Jack Rodewald on the intensity of the scrimmage.  “The first day was just getting your legs under you, and the second day you kind of see some things unroll.  Some guys are stepping up with big hits and players start reacting/defending their teams as we’ve been together a day and a half it’s good to see.”
