A Win and Two Ties for the Madison Excavating U11 Red Devils this Week
A midweek match-up saw the Madison Excavating Quinte Red Devils U11s host the Clarington Toros at the CAA arena on Wednesday night. Unbeknownst to the Devils at the time, but Kade Osterhout would score the game winning goal six and a half minutes into the first period. The score remained 1-0 throughout the remainder of the first period and carried through to the end of the second period, despite some penalty trouble. QRD added an insurance marker with just over three minutes left in the game, when Coulter Watson found the back of the net, giving QRD a 2-0 victory. In net, Ben Larmer was a wall, earning his first shutout of the season.
With less than a week having passed since the Madison Excavating Quinte Red Devils U11s travelled to Markham to take on the Waxers, they would then host them on home ice in Marmora on Saturday. The Devils brought their A-game and put forth a stellar performance. The Waxers scored early in the first period, but their victory was short-lived when Everett Brown blasted the puck past their goalie just over a minute later. The second period would see many shots on net from both sides, but no goals for either team. In the third period, the Waxers would score midway through, and once again QRD answered, when Dylan Chalk found the back of the net forty-three seconds later. The Waxers thought they could make a comeback with a third goal, but much like the rest of the game, QRD responded. A goal from Kade Whelan tied the game at three, with only one minute left. The score would remain unchanged for the final minute, resulting in a 3-3 tie. Between the pipes, Hayden Tripp made some great saves to help secure the tie.
In the only road game this week for the Madison Excavating Quinte Red Devils U11s, they would see similar results as the day prior. The Generals got on the board early, scoring just three minutes in, however, QRD answered just thirty seconds later, when Dylan Chalk scored a powerplay marker to tie the game at one. The second period started off on a positive note for QRD, when Kade Whelan buried a shot from the slot after a great feed from Everett Brown. The goal went unanswered for over six minutes, when the Generals managed to squeak two goals in before the period was over, both on a powerplay. The Devils came out flying in the third period, and Chalk would score his second goal of the game just thirty-two seconds in, to tie things up. The remaining fourteen minutes and twenty-eight seconds of the game were heated and tense, yet neither side could score, and the game ended with the 3-3 tie. Ben Larmer was skillful between the pipes, keeping the game close throughout.
Coach’s Corner with Head Coach Andrew Brown:
“We continue to gain experience in tight games. We have one more game Tuesday before a real fun test at the Hamilton tournament.”
ON DECK: The Madison Excavating Quinte Red Devils U11s will host the Peterborough Petes on Tuesday night in Madoc. This game will make-up for a game that was postponed due to weather on November 19th.

In their first game of the tournament, The Red Devils would face The Vaughan Kings who are the #1 ranked team in Ontario. The Devils missed a couple of chances early in the game and continued to battle hard in a back-and-forth game but could not find the back of the net in a 4-0 loss.
In their second game of the tournament, The Devils would square off against an ETA rival, York Simcoe Express. The Devils were up 2-0 at the end of the first period, on goals by Brody Grant and Miller Nicholson. The Express would not back down and both teams fought hard, exchanging chances in the game.

In their second game of the day on Friday, the Red Devils were up against The Midfairfield Rangers, a top team from the United States, who they had lost to just one month ago in Boston. In a fast paced, tight checking game that had fans on the edge of their seats, it was The Devils who struck first, when Noah Hughes buried a pass from Mason Whalen early in the first period. The Rangers would tie the game before the end of the period. Teams exchanged chances in the second and third period, and Matt Travers made several highlight reel saves, giving his team the extra edge they needed, before Austin Pettey scored what would be the eventual game winner at the eight minute mark of the third (assists; Grant and Plummer). The Devils defence went to work, shutting the door on the Rangers and the team killed a penalty late in the third, handing The Rangers their only loss of the weekend by a score of 2-1. The Rangers would eventually go on to become Silver Stick Champions.
In a must win game, Saturday afternoon, against their OMHA rivals from Oakville, the two teams once again proved that they are very evenly matched. This time, it was the Rangers who scored first in the second period, but The Devils would not back down, and Miller Nicholson evened the score on a beauty pass from Cameron Stevens, with just 21 seconds left in the second. Dax Sage came up big once again for his team, and the Devils handed them everything they could handle, but just couldn’t buy the go-ahead goal and the game ended in a 1-1 tie.
The coaching staff are exceptionally pleased with the hard work and sportsmanship shown by their team over the weekend. The players have gained some very valuable experience, playing against some of the top teams in North America, and looking forward to taking this back in to their league play.
