Glenn McInnes was in net for the 3-1 win.
Free Flow Petroleum- Minor Peewee
The hockey weekend started with a road trip to Kingston on Friday night, to play the Greater Kingston Jr. Gaels. A quiet first period, by both teams, the scoreboard recorded the first goal, in the second frame, as Matthew Airhart (assist to Riley Reid) gave Quinte the lead. To much dismay, the 3rd period was uneventful for the Minor Peewee's. The home squad netted 2 (then an empty netter) to win the game 3-1.
A quick turn-around may have been just what the Minor Peewee's needed, as this group was ready to get back to work and put Friday's loss behind them. Hosting York Simcoe Express (YSE), on Saturday afternoon, the team was on point from the drop of the puck and it remained a high-tempo game, from start to finish. The score, held firm at zero for over half the game, until Owen Rivers (from Cooper Kelly) put Quinte on the board!! Neither team slowing down, it was a contest until the bitter end. A meager 15 seconds remaining in the game, the puck was dominated by Quinte and Riley Reid (Carson Lynch) scored on the empty, to secure a 2-0 victory for the home team.
Foley Bus Lines- Minor Midget
Your 2004 Foley Bus Lines Devils kept pace in the ETA standings for a shot at first place with a couple more wins this past week in league action. Happy Halloween had the locals hosting the Clarington Toros to the Mackay Pad in a goaltending battle that stayed scoreless till the last seconds of the middle frame when the hometown team went up 1-0.
Midway through the third, QRD added an insurance marker before tacking on an empty netter to take the contest with a 3-0 final. This past Saturday the minor midgets traveled to Ajax-Pickering looking to sweep the 3 game season series with the Raiders and add another two crucial points in the standings. The special teams giveth and taketh away in this one as the Devils used a couple shorthanded goals to build up to a 4-1 lead and then held on through a penalty filled third to come away with a 4-3 victory.
