Submitted By mickandrews on Sunday, March 5, 2017
With the Bronze Medal win it gives this age group two Silver Medals, a Bronze Medal and a fourth place finish in 4 of the last 5 years. The Red Devils would like to congratulate the Whitby Wildcats for their Gold Medal win and the Brampton 45’s for playing hard and leaving nothing on the ice as they take home a Silver Medal.


Game #1 – Brampton 45’s (8-3 loss)

The game that ultimately decided the team’s fate in the championship weekend was the opener against the eventual Silver Medal winners the Brampton 45’s. The Red Devils played a strong two periods but a 2:49 second stretch at the end of the second period sealed the fate of the game. Goals were scored by Bailey Matthews, Emmet Pierce and Graham Dickerson while assists went to Matt Cawker(2), Graham Dickerson, Jake Campbell and Derrick Vos. Game MVP honours went to Graham Dickerson.

 

Game #2 – Grey-Bruce Highlanders (3-1 Win)

The team came out with a better performance against a fast Highlanders team and would skate to a 3-1 win on the strength of a complete team effort. Ethan Taylor was in net for the win. Goals were scored by Matt Cawker, Michael Andrews and Daniel Panetta while assists went to Derrick Vos, Graham Dickerson, Daniel Panetta, Dalton Bancroft and Michael Andrews. Game MVP honours went to Ethan Taylor.

 

Game #3 – Ajax-Pickering Raiders (5-5 Tie)

The Ajax Pickering Raiders have been a tough team for the Red Devils over the last three seasons with Ajax winning the majority of the games. This would be yet another test for the team. Ethan Taylor was in net for the tie. Goals were scored by Emmet Pierce, Zach Uens, Michael Andrews(2) and Logan White while assists went to Cameron Supryka, Jake Campbell(2), Daniel Panetta(2) and Dalton Bancroft(2). Game MVP honours went to Michael Andrews.

 

Game #4 – Whitby Wildcats (4-0 Loss)

A must win game for the Red Devils and Brennan Bush was called upon to give his team a chance to win and he did exactly that stopping all but a few shots he faced. Whitby was just too much in the end as the Devils surrendered the loss and an eventual meeting with Ajax in the Bronze Medal Game. Game MVP honours went to Zach Uens.
