Free Flow Petroleum- Minor Peewee (U12)
Playing three games in total, two of which were on the road, it was a busy week for the Free Flow Petroleum Minor Peewees as they continued round two of playoff action, versus the York Simcoe Express.
Thursday night, found the team travelling the distance for a late start in Aurora. Opening up the scoring first was Quinte's Matthew Airhart, assisted by Ryland Cunningham. Proving to be a strong match-up, the teams offered their fans commendable goal-tending and action-packed play. Battling strong, the middle frame showed no change in the score, causing for an intense third. It was YSE to hit the twine first, however only minutes later the Devils responded, as Cunningham was set up by Jack Foley, to tie things up. Into overtime they went, but the gridlock did not let up. Final score remained, a 2-2 draw.
Two days later, the Express joined us in Napanee. With a solid drive to the net Jacob Moore (unassisted) earned Quinte lone goal of the 2-1 game.
In the first-to-six-points-series now standing at: 3 points for Quinte and YSE with 5, the Minor Peewees returned to Aurora on Sunday. The Devils took to the ice with intentions of returning home with a win and having forced a sixth game. Unfortunately, the outcome did not allow, as the home team kept control of the goals.
Despite the road to the OMHA's having come to an unsettling end, the Minor Peewees have plenty to be proud of and will continue their play, with new sights set on the ETA finals. Games to be announced.
