CrossFit Belleville - Bantam
The Red Devils played host to the York Simcoe Express who are currently in second place in the West ETA division on Saturday and won the game in a decisive defensive effort 5-2, to pick up their 12th straight win. The defensive effort allowed very few offensive opportunities and the Devils played well in their own end and as a result didn't spend much time inside their own blue line.
As reported last week the coaching staff changed up the routine and the boys responded favourably with a better start to the game. The Red Devils opened the scoring and took a 2-0 lead before the end of the first period and added another one in the early stages of the second. Brennan Bush was spectacular in net and kept the game in Quinte’s favour when one of the few lapses in their own end occurred. This is Brennan's 13th victory in 18 regular season’s games and he surpasses his personal best regular season win total of 12.
The goals were scored by Michael Andrews(2), Bailey Matthews(2) and Zach Uens while assists went to Dalton Bancroft(2), Logan White(2), and Nolan Seto(2).
Next up for the CrossFit Belleville Bantams were the Peterborough Pete's, who have been playing better hockey in the latter part of the season and have exceeded their win total over last year by 5 games. Ethan Taylor was in net for the Red Devils and he too has bettered his regular season win total from last year by 3 games as he collected his 12th win in 18 regular season games. The Red Devils would close out the season with a decisive 8-3 victory.
The goals were scored by Jake Campbell(4), Michael Andrews(3) and Dalton Bancroft while assists went to Emmet Pierce(4), Daniel Panetta(3), Michael Andrews, Logan White, Dalton Bancroft, Keegan Hunt, Cameron Supryka and Conner Kennedy(2).
The next game for the CrossFit Belleville Bantams is not yet known but given their second place finish in the ETA East means they will be starting at home. The first round of playoffs can begin on Feb 8th and must conclude by the 21st. Stay tuned for more details and check the team’s website for details.
