Bonn Law- Major Bantam
The Bonn Law Bantams secured 3 points over the weekend with a tie and a win. On Saturday, it was a trip up the 401 to meet the Whitby Wildcats for the second time this season. The team was slow out of the gate and found themselves down by a pair of goals after two periods. Jack Dever got the Devils on the board early in the third frame with a power play goal, assisted by Ethan Miedema and Christopher Brydges and then Miedema found the back of the net himself for the equalizer (assisted by Dever and Carter McKee). The Devils ran out of time and had to settle for the single point, but Aidan Crowley made several key saves between the pipes to keep his team in the game.
The Bantams were back on home ice on Sunday at the CAA to host the Peterborough Petes and were successful in capturing two more points in the 4-3 win. Lighting the lamp for the Devils was Dever (2), Cal Uens, and Brydges. Collecting the assists on the goals was McKee, Brydges (2), Miedema, Uens (2) and Dever. Ethan Beattie was in net for the victory.

Madison Excavating- Minor Bantam
The Madison Excavating Minor Bantams had a tough lineup this past weekend as they faced the Raiders and the Express in regular season play. Friday had the Devils take to the road to Ajax-Pickering to face the Raiders. It was Quinte who hit the scoreboard first in the game with a shot from Ben Danford, assisted by Ben Vreugdenhil and Nolan Donnelly. The Raiders would tie the game but the Devils took the lead again with a goal from Vreugdenhil, assisted by Donnelly and Danford. The game was tied going into the third and with the battle back and forth all period, it was Brody Partridge with the game winning goal on the set up by Beckett Ewart. Glen McInnes protected the cage for the game for the 3-2 victory.
Sunday saw the Devils host the York-Simcoe Express. Quinte was first the light the lamp in the first set but it would be all Express offence for the remaining first and second period. The Devils got down in the second and could not recover, potting only one more in the third to succumb to a 6-2 loss. Danford would score the lone goal of the first, assisted by Donnelly and Braedyn Rogers. Gage Butcher would score unassisted in the third. Net minding was shared by McIvor and McInnes.
The Madison Excavating Minor Bantams will host the Richmond Hill Coyotes next Sunday at RCAF.
Free Flow Petroleum- Minor Peewee
This weekend was a two-game weekend for the Minor Peewee's, as they faced-off against the Markham Waxers at home on Saturday and took their skills to Whitby on Sunday. Getting the home game excitement started with a strong passing game, Jack Foley hit the twine, supporting roles by Kaden Koutroulides and Matthew Airhart. Into the second period, Quinte added one to their lead with an Airhart goal, set up by Kolby Craig and Owen Rivers. Balancing out the game, with one goal per period, Koutroulides credited for the lone effort and securing a 3-0 victory!
A subtle reminder of last Sunday, the Minor Peewee's met up once again, with the Whitby Wildcats! Prepared to showcase their abilities and their resilience, Quinte stepped onto the ice with only one thing in mind; a victory. Jacob Moore led the charge with an unassisted goal, halfway through the first period. Into the second, the Quinte pressure continued, penalties were killed and end-to-end action was constant. With less than two minutes left in the 2nd, Craig (Rivers) gave the visitors a 2-0 lead. It true Quinte-Whitby action, the game could not go on without a fight-back, whereby shortly into the final frame, Whitby had tied the game, at 2-2. Pressure on, it was a battle to the end, a passing play by Lynch and Foley, enabled Cunningham to score, now 3-2 Quinte. In response to the deficit, the home team pulled their goalie, not only giving them a man advantage, but also an empty-net. Riley Reid carefully taking advantage of the opportunity, secured the (4-2) victory for the Minor Peewees. A shutout for Cohen Bedore on Saturday and a victory for Katste Brant on Sunday, congratulations boys!!!
On Deck: A visit to Kingston on Friday evening and a home game in Napanee, versus York-Simcoe Express on Saturday!
Foley Bus Lines- Minor Midget
The Foley Bus Lines Minor Midget Devils hit the road this past weekend for their annual overnighter versus the Barrie Colts and North Central Predators. In game one on Saturday versus the Colts, the Devils wasted no time as they got out to an early 1-0 lead on the first shift of the game on route to a two goal per period pace to take the contest with a 6-0 final.
After a night spent in Barrie, the 04’s headed north to Rama to take on the Preds in a Sunday afternoon contest. The referee’s apparently wanted to be part of this one as they handed out 70 minutes in penalties in this special teams affair. Fortunately the Devils PK held the fort and kept the contest tied 1-1 until the middle of the game when the Devils went on to score five unanswered to take the game with a 7-2 finish and securing four more crucial points in the standings.
