The Madison Excavating QRD U11s had an exciting weekend, as they travelled to Niagara Falls to compete in the Front Row Sports Classic Tournament.
The QRD U11s finished with a 2-1-1 record after round robin play. The team fought hard and was one of eight teams to earn a spot in a quarter-final game on Sunday. The Madison Excavating QRD U11s started off strong with a solid win against the Huron-Perth Lakers to begin the tournament. The first period of the game would not see either team score a goal. QRD would change that close to the end of the second period, however, when Everett Brown found the back of the net with just over two minutes left in the period. Kade Osterhout added an insurance marker to give QRD a two-goal lead heading into the third. Period three would progress in a similar manner as the first, ending in a 2-0 win for QRD. In net, Hayden Tripp played hard to earn his first shutout of the season.
Later that afternoon, The Madison Excavating QRD U11s would take on the Chatham-Kent Cyclones. It was a tight game, and the Devils showed no mercy. The game heated up in period one when the Cyclones scored the first goal on a five on three power play. Dylan Chalk answered the goal thirty-seven seconds later, with one of his own. Hewett Tejnor then found the back of the net, which gave QRD the lead going into the second. The Devils would continue to reign fire when, thirty-two seconds into the second period, Kade Whelan would blast one past the opposing goalie. The Cyclones managed to get their second goal of the game less than two minutes later, however, QRD regained the two-goal margin with a marker by Blake Sills. QRD took the 4-2 lead into the third, where they continued to get into penalty trouble. The Sting capitalized on another five on three power play late in the third, before pulling their goalie to create a six on three, where they tied the game at four, with one minute left in the game. Ben Larmer demonstrated some solid skills in net, securing the tie.
Saturday morning, The Madison Excavating QRD U11s would go head-to-head with The Mississauga Rebels. The Rebels capitalized on a five-minute penalty against QRD in the first period, which unfortunately set the tone for the game. QRD was unable to find their groove and the game ended in a 9-0 loss for the Devils. Goaltending duties were shared by both Tripp and Larmer, who fought hard between the pipes.
It was down to game four on Saturday afternoon, and The Madison Excavating QRD U11s needed a win to qualify for quarter-finals on Sunday. This knowledge lit a fire under the boys, and they took on The Rochester Coalition with vengeance in their hearts. QRD dominated the first period, with goals from Chalk and Reed Kavanagh, to give the team a nice lead going into the second. The Coalition would squeeze in their sole goal of the game fairly early in the second period, but that would be all that they could manage against QRD. The Devils annihilated the third period, starting off right away with Kavanagh’s second goal of the game. Blake Milne would fire one past the goalie minutes later. Milne was not finished either, adding his second goal of the game, and the fifth one for QRD, with just one minute and thirty-seven seconds left on the clock. The game ended with a solid win for QRD, the final score being 5-1. It was enough to solidify the boys’ spot in the quarter-finals on Sunday. Larmer made some impressive saves between the pipes and helped QRD earn that semi-final spot.
Sunday, November 13th: Quarter-final Game
The quarter-final game on Sunday morning against The London Junior Knights was a nailbiter, to say the least. QRD came in fierce, with Sills scoring the first goal of the game in period one. While the goal was answered back a few minutes later from the Knights, the next two periods would not see another goal from either team. When the final buzzer sounded, the score was still 1-1. Regulation was followed by ten minutes of three on three in overtime, where both teams exchanged several scoring chances. The game, however, remained tied at 1. Teams moved on to a shootout where it took five rounds before the Knights could secure the win. In spite of QRD’s loss in the quarter-final game, the team competed well against one of the top teams in Ontario. In net, Tripp was very busy, making numerous saves to keep the game close.
Coach’s Corner with Head Coach Andrew Brown:
“We had a real menu of different forms of adversity over the weekend. It was really exciting to play Sunday in a game that really showed our character and determination. The coaches are very proud and are really excited about the growth over the weekend.”

Less than a minute into the second period Clarington would open up the scoring but Evan Andrews would score an unassisted marker shortly after to make it 3-1 for Quinte. Clarington would score two more times in the period but Beebe would score his hat trick goal and Cohen Reid would also score (both unassisted) to make the score after two periods 5-3 for Quinte.
