As the third period unfolded, QRD, already up by two, continued their offensive onslaught.

The deadlock was finally broken when the Colts scored the first goal of the game, two and a half minutes into the third period. Both teams intensified their efforts in pursuit of victory, however, with just under four minutes remaining in the game, the Colts capitalized on a powerplay, further solidifying their lead. The Devils came away with a 2-0 loss despite some incredible team play.
Sunday afternoon, back in Rama, the U12 Quinte Red Devils matched up against the North Central Predators for the second time that weekend. Just four and a half minutes into the game, QRD capitalized on a powerplay, taking an early lead. The second period, however, saw a defensive battle, with both teams successfully thwarting all scoring attempts. As the third period commenced, QRD was still up by one, when they struck early once again, netting a powerplay goal one and a half minutes into the period. The Predators, determined to mount a comeback, responded with a powerplay goal of their own, three and a half minutes later. With the game’s end approaching, QRD solidified their victory with a final goal, ending in a 3-1 win.
Coach’s Corner with Head Coach Evan Osterhout: "Another busy weekend proved to be a good challenge for the team, but the players met the challenge head-on. They emptied the tank on Sunday, and the coaching staff are happy to come away with 4 out of 6 points on the weekend."
