Langdon would score the game winner assisted by Danford. McIvor was in net for the 2-1 win.
Game 4 had Quinte face a familiar western team when they took on the Grey Bruce Highlanders. Braedyn Rogers scored the first, assisted by Ben Vreugdenhil and Danford. The Highlanders answered back quickly to tie it up. Two unassisted goals from Nolan Donnelly and Langdon in the second gave the Devils the lead going into the third.

The Devils sealed the number one seed in their pool and a spot in the Sunday morning quarter finals against the Vaughan Kings. The game was a back and forth battle with all the scoring of the game happening in the second. The Kings would take a 2-0 lead but Quinte would tie it at 2-2 before the end of the second. Scoring for the Devils were Donnelly and Butcher assisted by Kuipers and Danford. The game would be forced into OT after a scoreless third. With 3 minutes left in the extra set, it was Vaughan that got the lucky bounce to steal the game. McIvor played a strong game in the net.

Kaden Koutroulides was first to put Quinte on the scoreboard, by a set up from Rykken Ellis and Jack Foley. Oshawa taking serious that first goal intimidation, responded with 3 goals of their own. However, the Devils were not ending the period without making some noise. With one minute left in the first period, Ryland Cunningham notched one, assisted by Koutroulides, making the score 3-2. Pure domination for the remainder of the game, as Quinte lit up the scoreboard another four times. In the second set, it was Owen Rivers who hit the twine first, with a feed from Kolby Craig and Matthew Airhart, followed by a snipe by Jacob Moore (Assist to Carson Lynch), and then Airhart (assisted by Rivers). In the third, it was Foley who would make the final score 6-3, assisted by Cooper Kelly and Noah Lesser. Cohen Bedore was in net for the win.
Saturday afternoon, Greater Kingston Jr. Gaels, joined the Minor Peewees for Quinte Day. Their second match up of the season, the Gaels came in looking to prove themselves. Showing some relentless effort, Kingston gave the team a challenge and the Devils fell short in their attempt to catch up. The final score was 3-2, for the visitors. Minor Peewee goals went to: Airhart (assisted by Craig and Rivers) and Cunningham (set up by Foley and Koutroulides). Katste Brant stood tall between the pipes for the game.
