CrossFit Belleville - Bantam
The CrossFit Belleville Bantams played host to the Central Ontario Wolves who are seeking a destination with third place and avoiding Whitby in the first round of the ETA Playoffs.
The Red Devils would start the game but unfortunately not until the second period where they finally distanced themselves from the Wolves in effort, execution and the scoreboard. The coaches needed the intermission in order to set the boys straight and get them focused, they responded within the first 90 seconds scoring twice.
The Wolves mounted an attack of their own but as good teams often are able to accomplish, the CrossFit Belleville Bantams kept the Wolves to the perimeter of the ice and only allowed one goal to slip past Ethan Taylor who was in net for the Devils.
The third period would be all Quinte and they would skate to a 5-1 victory. Goals were scored by Emmet Peirce, Daniel Panetta, Jake Campbell, Michael Andrews and a short-handed hard working beauty by Nolan Seto while assists went to Jake Campbell(2), Emmet Pierce(2), Daniel Panetta(2), Dalton Bancroft and Logan White.
Next up for the CrossFit Belleville Bantams is a weekend tilt with the York Simcoe Express who currently resides in second place in the West ETA Division, then off to Peterborough on Sunday to face the Pete's to round out the regular season.
