4 of 6 points for the Madison Excavating U12 Red Devils this Week
After a busy week of practices, the Madison Excavating U12 Quinte Red Devils were primed and ready to hit the road for a tilt against the Oshawa Generals on Friday night. The Devils exploded with energy, scoring eight consecutive goals in the first period. The second period would see the game’s final goal, also scored by Quinte, leading to a 9-0 victory over the Generals.
On Saturday, Quinte’s U12s hosted the Peterborough Petes on home ice. In the first period, the Devils came out strong, scoring the first two goals of the game in quick succession. The Petes, however, answered back, netting two goals of their own, under a minute apart. Tensions were high to begin the second period, with the score tied at two. The Petes seized the opportunity to solidify their position, finding the back of the net a third time while on a powerplay. The Devils controlled much of the third period, however, were unable to capitalize offensively, before the Petes sealed the deal with an empty-net goal, just fourteen seconds before the final buzzer. The game ended in a 4-2 loss for the Devils, in spite of their solid effort and cohesive team play.
The weekend wrapped up on a high note, with the Devils hosting the Whitby Wildcats on Sunday afternoon.

Heading into the third, the score quickly changed just a minute and a half in, when the Devils found the back of the net for the second time, securing the game-winner. Three minutes later, the Wildcats finally broke through Quinte’s defence with a goal of their own, but it was not enough to swing the game in their favour. The Red Devils held firm, maintaining their lead, and ultimately clinched the 2-1 victory.

Thursday night saw the young Devils square off with the Whitby Wildcats at the newly renovated Warkworth arena. Mason Cooke started the scoring early when he banged home a rebound off a shot from Jackson Simpson. At the end of one the Devils remained up 1-0. Then some sloppy play and penalties allowed a very good Whitby team to take a 3-1 lead into the third. Kai Mackie cut the lead to one with assists going to Ethan Dowling and Greyson Rennie. Kolton Solmes would then tie it with an assist from Dowling. The Wildcats would not go away and took the lead with 1:16 remaining.

It would finish that way with the Devils earning a good character tie after two comebacks in the third period. Jordan Andrews made some great saves to keep the game tied. Player of the game went to Silas Templar.
