CrossFit Belleville – Bantam
With only a few remaining games before the Christmas Break there were changes to be made in order to start the home stretch of the season on a winning and positive note. With these changes came a better defensive outcome, a cleaner breakout and more creativity in the offensive zone. Results are not always vindictive of the plans and structure put into place but this was the case with the CrossFit Belleville Bantams in early December.
The Devils started with two straight 2-1 losses to teams they should have beat as they lost to Oshawa and Richmond Hill who collectively at the time had 15 wins between them but it created an opportunity to reflect on their efforts and execution. In Oshawa the lone goal came from Daniel Panetta while assists went to Keegan Hunt and Dalton Bancroft. Ethan Taylor took the loss against the Generals. In Richmond Hill the lone goal also came from Daniel Panetta while assists went to Emmitt Pierce and Jake Campbell. Brennan Bush took the loss in Richmond Hill.
The next set of games saw some minor tweaking of details and accountability within the dressing room and on the bench which has resulted in four straight wins. The first game saw the arch rival Kingston Frontenacs come to town only to leave with a loss as the Devils play well enough to win. The Devils came out strong scoring in the first 4 minutes of the game and stretched it to a 2-0 win before the period ended. Then in second period with a lapse of effort and execution the Devils allowed the Frontenacs to score 3 times with only one for the Devils and hence went into the dressing room at the intermission ties 3 – 3. The Red Devils would once again get back on track with #TeamFirst and #DefenceWinsChampionships mentality and came away with a stronger third period. Goals were scored by Dalton Bancroft (2) , Derrick Vos and Daniel Panetta while assists went to Cameron Supryka, Daniel Panetta and Michael Andrews. Ethan Taylor was in net for the victory.
Next up for the CrossFit Belleville Bantams was the Whitby Wildcats and the Devils beat the ETA East leading Whitby Wildcats 2-1 in a very well-played game. The goals were scored by Michael Andrews and Logan White as assists went to Dalton Bancroft, Michael Andrews and Emmitt Pierce while the victory went to Ethan Taylor for his ninth win of the season.
On Saturday the Red Devils hosted the Markham Waxers and came away with a 4-2 win for their third straight win in the month of December. Goals were scored by Michael Andrews, Emmitt Pierce, Daniel Panetta and Cameron Supryka while assists went to Emmett Pierce(2), Logan White, Keegan Hunt, Daniel Panetta(2) and Jake Campbell. Brennan Bush took home the victory.
Sunday meant a matchup with the Peterborough Petes and the Red Devils would skate to a 6-2 win. Brennan Bush won his tenth regular season game back-stopping the CrossFit Belleville team. Goals were score by Logan White(2), Daniel Panetta, Keegan Hunt, Michael Andrews and Ryan Loiselle while assists went to Emmitt Pierce(2), Dalton Bancroft(2), Carden Guerin, Bailey Matthews, Zach Uens and Michael Andrews(3). The Devils will now be into a Christmas Break with the hopes of continuing their win streak in the New Year as they host the Whitby Wildcats on January 2.

The Central Ontario Wolves rolled into Belleville on Saturday Dec 19 to take on the home town Minor Peewee Devils. The Yardman arena was once again kind to the Devils as they skated to a 5 to 0 shutout victory.

Assists were provided by Cooper Matthews with two, Trevor Hoskin with a pair, Liam Filip, Aaron Brown, Kendrick Webster and Owen Gibson with his third point of the night.
