The Barrie Colts hosted their annual Blue and White Game on Thursday night before a very enthusiastic crowd who packed the BMC to catch a glimpse of what’s to come for the 2011-12 season. 

In a very entertaining game that couldn’t have been scripted any better Team White came out victorious 9-8 in a shoot-out. 

The line combination of Tanner Pearson, Mark Scheifele and Colin Behenna put up a total of ten points, while Scheifele and Behenna each scored in the shoot-out. 

The much-improved Tanner Pearson put up one goal and three assists, as did Mark Scheifele, while Behenna scored twice and added a helper.

Steven Beyers and Jack Hidi also scored for Team White.  Hidi’s goal gave the White squad a 6-5 lead, but then Zach Hall tied the game for Team Blue sending the game to a five-minute overtime session. 

Overtime solved nothing and Justin Scott scored the game-winner in the shoot-out.

Brandon Devlin, Norm Ezekiel and Zach Hall each had a goal and an assist for Team Blue.  Ray Huether, Eric Locke and Alex Dagnal also scored for Team Blue, while Ivan Telegin had a pair of assists.

Barrie will begin exhibition play this Sunday when they travel to Owen Sound for the first part of a Labour Day home and home series.  On Monday Barrie entertains the Attack for a 6:00 p.m. puck drop.
