The first full 5-on-5 scrimmage wrapped up day two of Dauphin Kings Fall Camp on Saturday evening at Credit Union Place. As many veterans had the night off, a strong group of younger players had the opportunity to show what they could do and most certainly didn’t disappoint, including Dauphin’s own Hayden Lacquette.
The former Parkland Ranger scored two goals to fuel Team Chipperfield as they won the contest 4-2 in front of a solid crowd. Lacquette, who scored 23 goals in the past three seasons with the Rangers, scored the team’s first two goals of the game.
Doug Hedley commented on Hayden’s performance after the game.
“He’s the kind of player that really sees the ice well, he’s a smart player,” said Hedley. “He has a great shot. We knew himself and Jayden Jubenvill would be solid additions on the back end.”
Ethan Williment and Luke Morris scored one goal each for Team Chipperfield in the win.
Dauphin’s Rylan Gibbs had a marvellous goal for Team Goring in the defeat, when he led a rush and fired it to the back of the net. Nick Braun, who has been solid so far, scored one goal as well.
The focus is now on the JoFo Cup which will be played on Sunday afternoon at 2:00 p.m. Hedley confirmed after the game that veterans will be added into the lineup for Sunday’s game.
Following Sunday’s game, the team will take a day off on Monday before they welcome the Swan Valley Stampeders to town on Tuesday. Dauphin’s first road preseason game is next Saturday when they make the trip to the Arena Complex to play the Waywayseecappo Wolverines.
