The Pond at Rhino Sports and Playland – Minor Midget
The Rhino Sports Minor Midget Red Devils travelled to Stouffville to play the Markham Waxers on Saturday September 24th and Brennan Bush started the game for the Red Devils and picked up where he left off last week as he was once again stifling between the pipes. Jake Campbell would open the scoring on a sweet individual play as he undressed the Waxer defencemen and went top shelf. The Waxers would answer back beating Brennan Bush before Michael Andrews would make it 2-1 for the Devils on a saucer pass from Logan White. Graham Dickerson would make it 3-1 before the second period was over on a hard working short-handed tally that was created by Jake Campbell, Derrick Vos and Zach Uens enabling Dickerson to deke the goalie out and slide in the shorty. The third period is one the coaching staff will want to as the Red Devils came up flat in the third allowing the Waxers to tie the game as it would end in a 3-3 tie.
On Sunday the Red Devils travelled to Clarington to tackle the AAA Toros and the Devils started the game quickly as Emmett Pierce was sent in on a break-away and he made no mistake beating the goalie just 15 seconds into the contest. Logan White would make it 2-1 on assists by Emmet Pierce and Jake Campbell on a scoring chance created by a persistent fore-check. Heading into the third period with a 2-1 lead, the Devils would show case their talents and work ethic. At the conclusion of the game the final was 6-1 for the Devils and Bantam call-ups Jacob Vreugdenhil and Cole McGuire filled in effectively to fill the void in the defence and forward groupings. Goals were scored by Daniel Panetta, Emmett Pierce, Conner Kennedy and Jake Campbell while assists went to Carden Guerin, Conner Kennedy, Jake Campbell(2), Cameron Supryka, Emmet Pierce(2), Bailey Matthews and Logan White.
The Minor Midgets played host to the Peterborough Petes in a mid-week clash. It would be the Petes who would score first just 80 seconds into the contest.

On Saturday the Red Devils would travel to Whitby to play the top team in the ETA and the first period wouldn’t bring any scoring to the score sheet as Ethan Taylor was able to provide some spectacular saves during the frame. The second period was much of the same as both teams traded chances with Whitby carrying the majority of the play in the later stages of the period and finally put one past an over worked Ethan Taylor in the final seconds of the second period. Five minutes later on a deflected shot from the point Whitby would take the lead for good and won the game 3-0 on a late empty net goal.
On Sunday the Red Devils played the Richmond Hill Coyotes, a team that sits 1-4-1 in the first 6 games of the young ETA season.
