Squeak Out Pair of W's
Submitted By Chris Matthews on Monday, October 7, 2019
After a close call Sunday evening, the QRD Foley Bus Lines Minor Midgets managed to come out of the weekend with a pair of wins to add to their ETA standings. On Saturday afternoon, the Devils welcomed the always tough Oshawa Generals to the Mackay where the Generals got out to an early 1-0 lead on a power play goal. Fortunately, the home town squad equaled things up a couple minutes later to square off the first at 1-1. 

In the second, the Devils got on a roll to the tune of 3 unanswered goals only to follow that up with 3 more in the third before allowing one late to take the contest with a 7-2 final. Sunday, the Devils hit the road to Lindsay to take on the Central Ontario Wolves in a 6:30pm match up. In a familiar start to Saturday’s game, the Devils gave up a shorthanded goal early to trail 1-0. The QRD’s did manage to tie things up before the buzzer sounded in the first but the stingy Wolves clawed their way to a midway 3-1 lead in the second period. An equipment malfunction in the arena gave the Devil’s an unexpected timeout to shake off the cobwebs as they came out of that break to pot one before the flood, trailing now 3-2. The Devils threw everything they could at the net in the third and despite having a goal called back managed to jam one home with 2:32 remaining to tie things up. With the momentum now swung in favor of the Devils, the team kept pushing and found the twine one last time with a minute left and held on to squeak out the W and the four point weekend.
