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! 

Overtime Heartbreak

Friday night your Charleswood Hawks hosted the Raiders as we looked to get 2 much needed points. Our boys brought everything they had onto the ice and fought hard the entire game which made for an exciting game. After a hard fought 60 minutes, that saw your Hawks out shoot the Raiders, there was still no scoring to report. Overtime once again saw our boys fight hard for the puck, but at 4:22 of the extra frame, the Raiders found the back of the net and ended the game with a final score of 1-0. Final shots on goal were 36-35 in favour of the Raiders.  

Patrick Wiens stood tall between the pipes for us, stopping 35 of 36 shots which earned him the 3rd Star of the “Sorrento’s Cup 3 Stars”. Congratulations! 

Be sure to join us on the road as we head to St. James to take on the Canucks (9-3-1) who are coming off a 6-4 loss to the Twisters. Come cheer on your Hawks at the Civic Center this Tuesday November 13th as the puck drops at 7:30 – it’ll be a dandy! 

Friday Night Hockey

Friday night your Charleswood Hawks took on the Twins for the first time this season as we looked to get back in the win column.

First goal of the game went to the Twins at 14:54, putting the Hawks down 1-0 after the first period of play. The Twins capitalized on a penalty in the second making it 2-0 for the Twins.  Max Gardiner would score at 12:10 of the second with assists from Nate Roffey and Kyle Nanton but the Twins scored again just over 2 minutes later putting them up 3-1 after 2 periods of play. That turned out to be the final score as there was no scoring in the 3rd. Patrick Wiens was on duty for your Hawks in net last night, stopping an incredible 47 shots! 

Friday night was also our annual Digger Appreciation Night to reward all those young stars that gave it their all in this years RobWest Tournament. We would like to thank all the players and their families for coming out and enjoying some good food and fun with us. We can’t wait for next year!
