Sunday Feb 13th vs Ajax-Pickering Raiders
After a victory on Saturday the QRD squad carried that momentum into Sunday’s game vs the Raiders. This was QRD’s first home game in the last month and the boys didn’t disappoint the home crowd. The overall play was tilted in the direction of Quinte however the Raiders goaltender stayed firm and made some great saves. QRD would eventually score the game winning goal with 5 minutes left in the 3rd period then seal the deal with an empty net goal a bit later. Hayden Tripp played great in net for QRD securing the teams second victory in as many days.
QRD Goal Scorers: Kade Osterhout, Coulter Watson, Jack Seeney, Blake Milne and Everett Brown
