The Free Flow Petroleum Minor Midgets competed at the OMHA Championships this past weekend hosted by York Simcoe. The boys earned their spot in the showcase of the top 5 teams in the OMHA with a play-in game against Peterboro who finished 1st in the ETA east. The team faced Barrie again in game 1 of the OMHA Championship weekend facing a tough 4-2 loss. Later in the day they faced the top team in the west and the number two rated team in the province in the Oakville Rangers. Quinte played this talent laden team hard and kept it tight for the whole game losing a respectable 3-0. Facing a must win game Saturday morning, the Free Flow team faced a strong Guelph team. Quinte facing adversity, came out strong and held two, 2 goal leads eventually winning 3-2 to keep their hopes alive. All the boys needed was the overwhelming favorite Barrie Colts to beat the Guelph Gryphons later in the day and the Quinte boys were heading to the Bronze Medal game or possibly the Gold Medal game. However, as their season has gone, not everything is easy. The long drawn out series previously with Quinte started to take its toll on the Barrie players and they arguably played their worst game of the playoffs against Guelph and lost 6-4 with 2 short handed goals against. Not only did the loss relegate the Colts to the Bronze Medal game but the Free Flow boys had to now beat the host and arguably top 3 teams in the province YSE Express with the undisputed number 1 pick in the upcoming OHL draft. Facing a massive undertaking, the boys came out flying and actually had several good  scoring opportunities early but couldn't finish. That gave YSE the opening they needed and scored a goal in each period to finish with a 3-0 win. Unfortunately the boys didn't move on to the medal round but still earned a wild card play-in game to the OHL Cup March 13.
