Hawks Spun by Twisters…

Despite yet another solid effort by Ryan Hall who made 41 saves, the Hawks dropped a close one on Friday night with a 1-0 loss to the Pembina Valley Twisters. The offense came up dry despite tossing 27 shots towards the Twisters Travis Klassen who recorded his first shutout of the season. Jeremie Goderis scored for the visitors late in the third, which proved to be the game winner. The Hawks are back in action on Sunday afternoon with a 2:45pm start over at the Civic Centre versus the Canucks.Nov17
