Madison Excavating Major Peewee Quinte Red Devils capture Silver at OMHA Championships
OMHA Peewee AAA Championships were held at the CAA Arena in Belleville last weekend...
The Madison Excavating Quinte Red Devils Peewees were the 2018 Gold Medal winners of the OMHA Championships last March earning themselves the honour and privilege of hosting at home on the CAA Arena this past weekend.
The Devils earned their way in the front door of the tournament with a three game sweep of Central Ontario Wolves in the first round of playoffs and a repeat with a three straight game sweep of the Markham Waxers in the second round.
The attending teams this year included the Southern Tier Admirals, Grey Bruce Highlander, York-Simcoe Express and a last play in game entry of the Markham Waxers.
Game one of the tournament for the Devils was a 5-1 win over Grey Bruce. Game two on Friday ended in a 3-3 tie with the York-Simcoe Express. Saturday had the Devils face the Admirals in a sizeable match up. Quinte came out on top with a 3-2 win and a guaranteed spot in the gold medal game on Sunday. Game two Sunday was a rematch with the second round playoff opponent, the Markham Waxers. The Devils succumbed to a 4-2 loss.
The Gold Medal game Sunday was a familiar match up as the Quinte Red Devils played the Markham Waxers for Gold for the third year in a row. In the end, the Devils fell short with a 4-1 loss but proudly took the Silver Medal. The entire team and staff would like to thank the greater Quinte community for their support throughout the weekend. The CAA stands were loud with Devils fans!!
