Sunday Night in Fort Garry

After an exciting win at home on Friday night, your Charleswood Hawks looked to get another 2 points as we headed out to Century arena to take on the Twins. 

The first period saw some exciting hockey with the Twins out-shooting the Hawks 17-9, however neither team was able to get on the score sheet after 20 minutes of hockey. 

Early in the 2nd period, at the 2:18 mark, Max McLean would get your Hawks on the board with the assists going to Skylar Tremblay and Ben Wicha. The Twins capitalized on some penalties that went against your boys as they would add 2 power play goals and one even strength goal to end 40 minutes of play with a score of 3-1 for the Twins. 

The final frame had penalties go the other way though, and your Hawks took advantage of that twice as both Sean Robinson (assisted by Ben Wicha and Austin Hesselbart) and Max Gardiner (assisted by Mitch Justl and Austin Hesselbart) scored to bring your Hawks within one goal! In the dying minutes of the frame, we would pull the goalie to get the extra attacker on the ice in an attempt to tie things up, however the Twins would add an empty net goal to end the game with a final score of 5-3. 

Patrick Wiens had the duty between the pipes for your Hawks, stopping 50 shots on net to give him a .926 save percentage in the game! 

Your Charleswood Hawks now have a record of 8-9-4 on the season and now look to our next game this coming Friday. We’re back home this Friday night as we take on the Raiders who are on a 4 game winning streak, but we look to end that as this one promises to be another great match-up between these rivals. Puck drops at 7:30 at Eric Coy – hope to see you there. 

No Luck against the Canucks

Your Charleswood Hawks took a short drive to St James last night to take on the Canucks with the hopes of extending our winning streak to 4, while the Canucks were looking to extend their streak to 3 after coming off a tight game in Stonewall earlier this week. The last 2 meetings have been decided by just one goal so this one promised to be a good game again. 

Austin Hesselbart opened up the scoring on a power play at the 11:59 mark of the first period, with the assists going to Matt Lawrence and Joben Smith. St James would get on the board just under 2 minutes later, ending the first 20 minutes of play in a 1-1 tie. 

While the 2nd and 3rd periods saw no scoring, there was plenty of action on the ice as Ryan Hall was kept busy, stopping shot after shot from the Canucks. The score remained tied at 1 a piece after 60 minutes so it was off to OT we went, where the Canucks would find the back of the net to end the game with a final score of 2-1. While it was a disappointing end to the game, we were able to walk away with a point in hand in what was yet another tight game between the 2 clubs. 

It’s been a great week of hockey for our boys and now it’s time for a little rest until Friday when it’s another Hockey Night in Charleswood as we host the Stonewall Jets for the first time this season. The Jets are up 1-0 on the season series and we hope to even things up. Puck drops at 7:30 at Eric Coy. We hope to see you there to cheer on your Charleswood Hawks! 

Game Day

It’s game day again, Hawks fans! Tonight we go on a short road to take on the Twins. Our boys are looking to even the series up at one a piece. Pucks drops at 7:30 at Century Arena – hope to see you there. It’ll be a dandy!
