Brandon Morley of Burnaby scored the game-winning goal with less than seven minutes to go as Team Red posted a comeback win for a second night in a row at the Canada West selection hockey camp in Calgary.
Morley, who was traded to the Coquitlam Express of the B.C. Hockey League from Surrey less than two weeks ago, got the winner for Team Red in a 2-1 victory over Team Blue on Tuesday. Red defeated Team White 3-2 in overtime on Monday.
Morley was one of the lucky 22 skaters named to the west squad following the four-day camp for next week's World Junior A Challenge, which will take place in Yarmouth, N.S. on Monday.
The 18-year-old Morley is one of seven returning players from last year's Canada West squad that won the event for a third time with a 4-2 victory over Canada East at the world challenge. He is also one of three Express named to the representative squad. Former Northwest Giants star forward Alex Kerfoot and Zachary Pryzbek are the other two Coquitlam picks.
One night after erasing a 2-0 deficit after 20 minutes, Red battled back from a 1-0 hole with just under 11 minutes left to finish camp with an unblemished 2-0 record in intrasquad play at the World junior A Challenge camp in Calgary.
James de Haas had the other goal for Red, which won despite being outshot for the second time in as many nights.
Wade Murphy was the lone goal scorer for Blue, breaking open a scoreless game on a power play early in the third period.
The World junior A challenge kicks off this Saturday with Canada West taking on Team U.S.A. in an exhibition game.
The competition begins in earnest for Team West against the Czech Republic on Tuesday, Nov. 6.
The championship final will be played on Sunday, Nov. 11.
