The team had to travel to Whitby for a Friday night game, and it wasn’t pretty. The U13s gave up 6 goals as they lost 6-1. Coach Durant said ” It’s all about winning or learning. You have to be consistent in the league.” QRD has been mostly consistent but gave Whitby credit for just out working them. Brechyn Aird had a lone goal on the power play and Lauchlan Whelan and Trent Clow added the assists on QRD’s only goal. Nathan Ferriss who was sharp unfortunately got the loss in net.
On Saturday QRD was home to Oshawa at the Baltimore rink and came back with a great performance. Ryerson Swan got the start and was injured halfway through the second when an Oshawa player ran into the net. Swan shook it off and hung in there and got the 5-2 win.

Assists went to Whelan 2, Hooey, 2, Clow, Seguin, Lowry, Harold and B Aird. Next on tap was against the rival Peterborough Pete’s.
On Sunday we took on the red-hot Pete’s. Nathan Ferris got the start and was excellent in the pipes. Even though Peterborough took a 1-0 lead, it didn’t stop QRD. Andrew Laurin opened up the scoring with his first off two on the night. Lauchlan Whelan decided to get in on the scoring and added two of his own. In the end QRD who has had a tough time scoring added three more with Trent Clow, Joey Seguin and Ewan Dahle getting in on the action.
Liam Marion who came back to Quinte after spending a year with the Pete’s added 3 helpers along with Seguin 3, Martin, Harold, Brechyn Aird 2 and Laurin. With winning 7-1 it put some distance between QRD and a few other teams chasing that top spot. Coach Belej, who is the associate head coach said it was a complete team effort. “It took every guy to compete and play all 45 min. We are proud of the players and we know that Peterborough is a great team, so the next match up will be a good one.”
