The Pond at Rhino Sports and Playland – Minor Midgets
The Rhino Sports Minor Midgets travelled to Aurora to play the York Simcoe Express on Saturday night with key components absent from the line up once again. One of our top forwards; Dalton Bancroft has been sidelined for every game in the ETA Season thus far and has been missed on the power-play and in a leading role as a right winger. The ever steady and calm blue liner Keegan Hunt is healing a lower body injury that has sidelined him since the second game of the young season. Keegan brings the ability to move the puck with his speed or by utilizing the outlets available to him. He is a void that can’t easily be filled in our line-up. The team also has Matt Cawker who was gaining momentum, has given the team a play-making center it has desired for a long time to complete the line-up. Matt has been sidelined with an upper body injury for the last three weeks and isn’t scheduled back for another 10 days or so. Given the key players that are out of the line-up, the players in the line-up still continue to show resilience and have a good record in the ETA.
The game on Saturday night was a winnable game regardless of being down players as this team is good enough to win without key players in the line-up no matter who isn’t dressed. With this said the York Simcoe Express would skate to a 7-4 victory, as the Express netted two empty net goals in the last minute of the game. The Red Devils played hard at times but fell short as they need to compete every shift in order to become victorious against the top teams in the ETA. The Red Devils opened the scoring on a beauty stretch pass from Emmett Pierce to a streaking Jake Campbell who made no mistake going low glove. York Simcoe would score the next three goals before the Devils answered back with a goal from Michael Andrews on a nice feed from Daniel Panetta.
The Express would pull away once again and make it a 4-2 but early in the third the Devils had some push back to give and Carden Guerin would blast one home on another sweet pass from Emmett Pierce to make it 4-3. The net minding of Brennan Bush was unbelievable at times as he continuously made key saves when the pressure was on and the Devils were unable to clear the zone. Brennan stymied the Express on a particular shift that saw the 3 on 2 turn into an amazing post to post kick save then another toe save in mid-air to keep the score closer than it really was at this juncture.
Then 12 minutes later on a strong shift by the Express they would make it 5-3 on a shot Brennan has yet to see as there were too many bodies in front screening. Just when you might think the boys were ready to pack it in the resilience was once again there as Zach Uens blasted one from the point with the net empty with six attackers crashing the net. That would be as close as they would get in Aurora on this night
The Minor Midget Red Devils were in Peterborough on Sunday to face the Pete’s. The Red Devils would open the scoring in the first period on a nice individual effort by Daniel Panetta as assists went to Graham Dickerson and Derrick Vos. The teams would skate scoreless until the second period when Graham Dickerson would make it 2-0 for the devils as the loan assist went to Michael Andrews. The third period would see the Red Devils go two men down as Nolan Seto and Daniel Panetta would leave the game with lower body injuries. The Minor Midgets would go up 3-0 on a power-play marker as Derrick Vos scored on a passing play between Emmet Pierce and Cameron Supryka.
Then Peterborough got a lucky one by the stellar Ethan Taylor to make it 3-1 with lots of time still remaining in the game. The teams would trade chances but both goalies stood tall. The Pete’s found the back of the net again on a nice individual play by a former Red Devil Elijah Brahaney. That would be as close as the Pete’s would get as time expired and the Red Devils would win 3-2.
On Deck: Next up for the Red Devils will be the Clarington Toros on Wednesday night at the Quinte Sports and Wellness Center at 9:15pm.
