The Madison Excavating U12s Post Split Results this Week
On home ice in Madoc this past Saturday, the Madison Excavating U12 Quinte Red Devils took on the Barrie Junior Colts in a gripping showdown. QRD wasted no time, finding the back of the net just two minutes and twenty-seven seconds into the game. Barrie quickly responded, however, evening the score with a goal of their own before the end of the first. The second period unfolded as a defensive battle, but the Colts managed to break through, scoring the lone goal of the period and securing a lead heading into the final frame. In the third period, the Colts netted four consecutive goals, putting them in a prime position for the win. The Devils rallied in the late stages of the game, scoring their second goal with just three minutes and eighteen seconds left on the clock. Although it wasn't enough to shift the tide entirely, the final goal showcased the resilience of the Devils, who took a 6-2 loss.

The Wildcats quickly responded, netting a goal of their own under three minutes later. The battle continued; with just two minutes and thirty-seven seconds remaining in the period, Quinte scored a second goal while shorthanded, momentarily regaining the lead.

U10s Lose Two Tight Games
On Saturday Dec 9th the Breakaway Fuels U10 Red Devils faced a very strong Barrie Colts team in a double header. Game one was in Marmora and the young Devils jumped out to an early lead when Ethan Dowling found the back of the net on a pass from Kai Mackie. Despite some good pressure the period would end 1-0. The Colts would take a 2-1 lead before Mason Cooke tied it with the assist going to Jackson Simpson. Kolton Solmes would give the home team a 3-2 lead late in the second with Dowling picking up an assist. The game would stay that way until the midway mark of the third when an unfortunate bounce allowed the road team to tie it. 8 seconds later the Colts scored again to take a 4-3 lead and would hold on for the win.
Five hours later would see the two teams face off at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Centre. This time the Colts got the jump on the Devils and got out to a 2-0 lead halfway through the first period. The young Devils battled back in the second to tie the score at 2 on goals by Solmes and Simpson with assists going to Tripp Plumley, Wade Robinson, Reid Haley and Greyson Rennie. The teams battled throughout the second and headed to the third tied at 2. As was the case in game one the Colts got the better of the Quinte kids in the third and moved out to a 5-2 lead before Mackie would score unassisted. Unfortunately it was too little too late and despite a late flurry of action the boys wound up on the wrong end of a 5-3 score.
Moving forward this week the U10’s will look to rebound with games against Kingston on Wednesday at CAA, Whitby on Saturday at the Keeler Center, and another double header on Sunday on the road at Ajax/Pickering and Central Ontario Wolves.
