With the Twisters having a 3-0 lead in the series, game 4 was crucial for your Hawks to win as they hoped to extend their hockey season a little longer.
Both sides fought hard for each and every minute of the frame, but the first 20 minutes would end in a 1-0 lead for Pembina. The 2nd period would be a very similar story as both the Hawks and Twisters were evenly matched all period, however Pembina would get on the score sheet one more time to go up 2-0 after 40 minutes of play.
Playoffs are a different type of game though and anything could happen in the 3rd period.
It would be another great period of hockey by your Charleswood Hawks as they would out shoot Pembina 17-13 while battling hard for every puck possession and every face off, but after 60 minutes of what was spectacular hockey, Pembina would add 2 more goals to their tally to end the game with a 4-0 final bringing the series to a close.
As our season winds down and we take a look back at this season, we can all truly say that we put our hearts and souls into this game and every effort was made to win each and every single game. We can all hold our heads up high with pride knowing that we left everything out on the ice and we will be back next season to take another run at the championship. We would like to thank all of our fans who supported us throughout the season. It truly meant a lot to all of us. From our family to yours, we thank you sincerely.
Make sure to keep checking back regularly for any and all Hawks updates in the off-season. We hope to see you all back at Eric Coy next year for more great Charleswood hockey – it’ll be a dandy!
Game 2 was another close one between your Charleswood Hawks and the Pembina Valley Twisters. After a thrilling double OT game on Friday night, the Hawks were looking to tie up the series.
The Twisters would go up 1-0 after 20 minutes of play, but the 2nd period saw plenty of action as Pembina would find the back of the net twice more, however Joben Smith would put your Hawks on the board at 8:56 with the assists from Nolan Sekundiak and Austin Hesselbart. Pembina would get into some penalty problems late in the 2nd and Matt Lawrence would capitalize on it at the 18:39 mark to bring the Hawks within 1 goal after 40 minutes. The assist went to Joben Smith.
The 3rd period would prove to be even busier for the goaltenders as shots on goal in the frame would be 17-16 in favor of the Hawks. The Twisters would go up by 2 after scoring early in the period, however your captain, Spencer Ferbers, had something to say about that as he would get an unassisted goal at 9:28 of the period to bring the score within 1 again. Even with Ryan Hall being pulled to get the extra attacker in the dying minutes of the frame, the Hawks were just not able to tie things up as the final score would be 4-3 for Pembina.
With the series now being at 2-0 for Pembina, game 3 will go back to Morris this coming Wednesday. Considering how close the first 2 games have been, your Charleswood Hawks are hoping for the win in Morris. Puck drops at 7:30. We hope to see you there – It’ll be a dandy!
Sunday night was the final game of the regular season for your Charleswood Hawks as they hosted the Twins one final time this season. The previous match ups between these 2 teams have been tight games with very few goals scored and this one would be no different.
The Twins would take an early lead in the game as they would score half way through the first period, but Ryan Hall stood tall between the pipes, turning away shot after shot all game.
While there was no scoring in the 2nd frame, the Charleswood Hawks would apply some great pressure, out shooting the Twins 14-11 in the period.
It would come right down to the wire in the 3rd period as the Twins were holding on to their 1-0 lead throughout most of the game. However, with just 58 seconds left, Nolan Sekundiak would find the back of the Twins net to tie it up! Austin Hesselbart and Matt Lawrence would assist on the goal. Extra time would be needed to resolve this one, however the Twins would get the win for this one early into the 1st period.
While it wasn’t the result the Hawks were hoping for, it was another great game and an exciting one to end the regular season schedule with a final record of 18-20-7. Be sure to check back regularly as more information about the first round will be coming soon!
