The second set would see the Quinte team pad their lead with two more goals and giving them a 3-0 lead before heading into the third and final set of the game. Goals in the second came from Thomas Kuipers and Jared Woolley, assisting on the plays were Liam Storms, Woolley and Kuipers.

It was a wintery weekend for the Gillespie’s Tree Services U13 AAA Red Devils.
Unfortunately, due to Mother Nature both of our games had to be postponed. There is a bright side to this though. The team joined the rest of the Quinte organization for the Quinte Day and a Belleville Senators experience. The Sens took on the visiting Syracuse Crunch. It was a great game and there was lots for the U13 to focus on. It was an opportunity to do the Belly’s Clean-up crew job and win a great Belleville experience for the team. They beat the record by 10 seconds. Way to go boys!! Then the team signed their signs for Hockey Fight Cancer. There was great support from not only the U13 but the whole of the QRD Organization.
Players and parents were also asked to support the local food drive. The U13 brought a boat full of food to support a great cause. The chuck a puck fundraiser was exciting and supported the younger teams of Quinte when buying the red and blue pucks. Liam Marion who is usually putting the puck in the net, put his puck right on the dot at centre to win a private Sens experience. You always save the best for last, Trenton Memorial Hospital was raising money for a new mammogram machine. Our parents and the community dug deep and filled those bed pans. It was a great night. We are certainly proud of the players for their off-ice commitment to their community!
