In the second, Quinte scored twice in 22 seconds with goals from Nate Rashotte unassisted, and Chase Cybulskie from Cam Shaw. The Red Devils continued to dominate the play into the third period with their third goal coming from Pierson Clute from Cam Shaw and Paxton Erskine.

Just over a minute later, the Wolves struck again to tie the game at 3 and that’s the way the game would finish. Charlie Vos was in the net for tie.
On Sunday, the Red Devils were up against the undefeated Whitby Wildcats.

Whitby would score first, but Cam Shaw was able tie the game 9 seconds later from Chase Cybulskie. 41 seconds later, Whitby regained the lead, and then scored again half way through the period to go ahead 3-1.

Sunday the boys faced their west division rivals, the Ajax Pickering Raiders. Devils came out flying and dominated the first period with several good scoring opportunities but couldn’t put anything past the Raiders goalie. It was the same for the second period until Jacob Gilbert finally banged home a goal for the Devils with assists from Langdon and Stevenson.
