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!!
That’s right folks, your Charleswood Hawks came out of their losing skid with hard fought game last night against the River East Royal Knights. The Knights were able to get on the board first with a goal in the early minutes of the 1st period, however Ben Wicha – with the assist from Austin Hesslebart – was able to tie things up at one a piece midway through 2nd frame.
Mitch Justl – with the assists from Kyle Nanton and Joben Smith – buried his 2nd of the season at just 45 seconds into the third period! Just over 3 minutes later, Joben Smith would add another tally to the score sheet, putting your Hawks up 3-1. The Knights would get one back, however Joben Smith would get the empty netter for his second of the night and 8th of the season to win the game at 4-2 in favor of your Hawks.
Shots were 52 – 29 for your Hawks last night, with Ryan Hall getting the call between the pipes, which earned him another impressive save percentage of .931 last night.
A big congratulations goes out to Mitch Justl as he was recently named an Assistant Captain for your Hawks. We’re proud to have you in our Hawks family.
It’ll be a short lived celebration though, as we get right back to work tonight to take on the Twins. The Twins are on a 4 game winning streak right now but we hope to end that tonight. We hope to see you there. Pucks drops at 7:30 at Century Arena – it’ll be a dandy!
