Team West to battle for ninth

Team West will play for ninth place today at the World Under-17 Hockey Championship in Nova Scotia.

Brandon Wheat Kings forward Jesse Gabrielle set up Cameron Hebig for West’s goal Thursday in a 4-1 loss to Quebec in North Sydney.

Wheat Kings prospect Colt Conrad of St. Alphonse was shut out for the first time in the tournament, picking up only a minor penalty for West, which finished the preliminary round at 1-3, while Quebec went 2-1-1. West, a team made up of players from Manitoba and Saskatchewan, including goalie Tyson Verhelst of Brandon, defenceman Wyatt Kalynuk of Virden and forward Meyer Nell of Boissevain, will take on Germany (0-4) in the ninth-place game today in Port Hawkesbury. West beat Germany 7-1 in their tournament tune-up on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Team Pacific, made of players from Alberta and British Columbia, finished first in its pool by beating Sweden 3-1 Thursday in North Sydney to improve to 3-1 and earn a matchup with Russia (2-1-1) in today’s semifinals. Wheat Kings forward Braylon Shmyr did not figure in Pacific’s scoring.
