Road Trip Woes

Tuesday night saw your Hawks take to the highway as we went to take on the Pembina Valley Twisters who were coming off 2 losses in a row. Your Charleswood Hawks were looking to rebound after a tough loss just a couple of nights earlier.

The first period was an evenly matched event on ice as shots were 10-9 for the Twisters, however they were able to find the back of our net twice to take a 2-0 lead heading into the 2nd.

The second frame was more great hockey by both teams, however Pembina was able to get on the score sheet again to give themselves a 3-0 lead after 40 minutes of play.

Your Charleswood Hawks were determined to put up a good fight against the leagues top team though so no one was giving up. Unfortunately Pembina was able to put another 2 pucks into the back of our net, ending 60 minutes of play with a 5-0 win. Shots were 36-32 in favor of the Twisters.

There’s no time for self pity though as we shake this one off and get ready for our next match when we host the Victoria’s this coming Friday at Eric Coy. This will be our last game of the calendar year as we take some time off to enjoy the holiday season with friends and family.

Puck drops is 7:30 at Eric Coy – we hope to see you there to cheer on your Charleswood Hawks.

Sunday Afternoon Sorrows

After a hard fought shootout win on Friday night, your Charleswood Hawks were looking to take that momentum to Transcona as we visited the Railers for a matinee game. 

Unfortunately the Railers had plans of their own to bounce back from a 2 game losing skid as they would find the back of our net 3 times in the first 20 minutes while out-shooting us 14-4. 

They would another 2 goals in the second frame before Joben Smith was finally able to solve their goaltender for his 10th on the season. The assists would go to Max Fisher and Mitch Justl. Before the 2nd was over, the Railers would add another 3 goals, making it 8-1 after 40 minutes of play. 

The 3rd period saw Max Fisher get his 2nd point of the night as he found twine with the assist of Spencer Ferbers and Austin Hesselbart. It just wasn’t enough though as the Railers took the game with a final score of 8-2, giving your Hawks a 9-10-4 record on the season so far. 

Time to move on to the next one now, as your Hawks are heading out to Morris this coming Tuesday, Dec 18th, to take on the Twisters for the first time this season in their home rink. Puck drop is at 8pm.

Then it’s one final home game before the holiday break on Dec 21st as we host the Victorias which will have a 7:30 puck drop. We hope to see you there! 

2 in a row!!

Your Charleswood Hawks were on the road last night to take on the Twins. We were looking to go back to back wins with this game, while the Twins were hoping to continue their win streak.

While the first period saw no goals, there were plenty of chances for your Hawks as we kept the Twins in their own end for a good part of the period. 

At the 10;18 mark of the 2nd, your captain, Spencer Ferbers found the back of the net for his 2nd of the season. Tanner Mulligan and Austin Hesselbart received the assists on the goals, making it Tanner’s very first point as a Hawk! Congratulations are in order. Quinn Werbowski would also get onto the score sheet with just under 2 minutes left in the 2nd, as he netted his 4th of the year with assists from Austin Hesselbart and Max Gardiner

The 3rd period saw the Twins get one back with just under 3 minutes left to play, but we fought hard and kept it that way for a final score of 2-1, giving us a 6-8-3 record on the season so far. 

There were plenty of pucks flying at the goaltenders last night as the shots were 37-39 for the Twins. Ryan Hall was once again outstanding for us in net. 

Now we head back home for a big game this coming Friday as we host the Riels for the second time this season. The series is tied up at one a piece, so come on down to cheer on your Charleswood Hawks as we look to go one up in the series. Puck drop is at 7:30 at Eric Coy. We hope to see you there – it’ll be a dandy!!
