Weathering The Storm

Sunday afternoon brought the Pembina Valley Twisters to the Coy for a rare matinee game. The Twisters were coming off a 4-1 victory over the Riels and your Hawks were looking to rebound from the loss to the Railers. 

The Twisters got on the score sheet quickly in the 1st period, putting up 3 goals in the first 20 minutes. They would add another goal in the 2nd, putting them up 4-0 after 40 minutes of play. 

Pembina would add a 5th goal early in the 3rd period, putting them up 5-0. Your Hawks wouldn’t go down without a fight though and Austin Hesselbart found the back of the net at 8:23 into the 3rd on a power play for his 2nd of the season! Kyle Nanton and Joben Smith assisted on the goals. Just 10 minutes later, Max Fisher scored for his second of the season as well. Joben Smith and Kyle Nanton assisted on those goals as well! 

Unfortunately it just wouldn’t be enough as the game ended with a final score of 5-2 in favor of the Twisters. Patrick Wiens took care of the goal-tending duties ans stopped an amazing 50 of 55 shots! 

Our next game takes us to St. Vital to take on the Victorias, who are coming off a 4-2 loss to St. James. Puck drops at 7:30 at St. Vital Centennial Arena. Hope to see you there – it’ll be a dandy! 

Hawks Derailed

Your Charleswood Hawks took on the Transcona Railer Express last night with the hopes of ending our losing streak.

The first period saw Ryan Hall standing tall between the pipes as he stopped 16 shots in the first frame alone. After 20 minutes of play, there was no score though and both sides would head to the dressing rooms to regroup.

The 2nd period saw your Hawks out-shoot Transcona 10 – 8 but both goaltenders were solid as no one was able to find the back of the net.

At 5:45 of the 3rd period, Joben Smith (assisted by Spencer Ferbers) was finally able to solve the Transcona goaltender as he found the back of the net for his 6th of the season. Less than 5 minutes later, the Railer Express were able to tie things up though. They would add another 2 goals before 60 minutes of play were up, to end the game with a final score of 3-1.

Final shots on goal were 40-19, giving Ryan Hall a .925 save percentage.

Your Hawks now stand 4-6-3 on the season. We’re back home this coming Sunday, November 18 to take on the Pembina Valley Twisters. Puck drops at 3:45pm at Eric Coy. Come support on your boys as we look to end our losing streak – it’ll be a dandy!

Road Trip!

Tonight we take to the road again as we head to Transona to take on the Railer Express for just the second time this season. This will be our first game on their ice and we’re hoping for some redemption from the last meeting between the 2 teams. Puck drops at 8 pm at East End Arena. Hope to see  you there – it’ll be a dandy!
