Game 3 was yet again another tight game full of skill and hard fought puck battles. With the series sitting at 2-0 for Pembina, your Charleswood Hawks were looking to pull the win out of this one to avoid going down 3-0 in the series.
Pembina would get on the score board first mid way through the 1st frame, however Sean Robinson would get his first of the playoffs just over a minute later at the 10:29 mark to tie it up! The assists went to Spencer Ferbers and Joben Smith.
Pembina would catch a lucky break as they were able to spring into a breakaway with a player coming out of the penalty box to go up 2-1 in the 2nd. While your Hawks were able to apply some real pressure in the 3rd period, they were just not able to get the puck into the Pembina net a second time and the game would end in a 2-1 final.
With Pembina being up 3-0 in the series, it’s do or die for your Charleswood Hawks as they host the Twisters this coming Friday at Eric Coy for game 4. We need all Charleswood Hawks fans to come down and cheer on the boys to make this a 7 game series! Puck drops at 7:30 and we hope to see you there.
Game one of the playoffs for your Charleswood Hawks started with some very exciting hockey.
Your Hawks would open up the scoring at the halfway point of the 1st with a shot from Max Gardiner with the assist from Kyle Nanton! The Twisters would get on the board themselves, ending the first frame at one a piece.
Pembina would take a 2-1 lead in the 2nd, but your Hawks wouldn’t let off the pressure as Mitch Justl would tuck his first of the playoffs into the Twisters net. The assist went to Matt Lawrence.
The 3rd period saw a lot of back and forth hockey, however both goaltenders stood tall to turn away every shot they faced so extra time would be needed to decide a winner of this one.
The first overtime period would showcase the talent between the 2 clubs, but with no scoring, we would need another OT period to solve this game. In double Overtime is when Pembina would score to end game one in a 3-2 final.
Even though game 1 went to Pembina, the excitement is already building for game 2 of the series which will be this Sunday March 17 at Eric Coy. Please join us to cheer on your Charleswood Hawks to win game 2. Puck drops at 7:30. We hope to see you there – it’ll be a dandy.
Wednesday night your Charleswood Hawks took to the road to take on what would be the last regular season game between the Hawks and the Twisters.
It wasn’t long before the Twisters found the back of the Hawks net, early in the first and they would add another to go up 2-0 after the first period. While the second period was a more evenly matched 20 minutes of hockey, the Twisters would find another 2 goals to go up 4-0 after 40 minutes of play.
Down but not out, your Hawks would claw their way back in the 3rd as your captain, Spencer Ferbers, would find twine at 2:16 of the 3rd, with the assists from Quinn Werbowski and Matt Lawrence. At 14:18 of period, Nolan Sekundiak would get his first of the season! The assists would go to Matt Lawrence and Joben Smith. Austin Hesselbart would also get an unassisted marker late in the 3rd, however the ever hopeful 3rd period comeback was just not meant to be as Pembina would add another 2 goals in the period for a final score of 6-3.
Final shots on goal were 39-33 in favor of Pembina. Your Hawks now sit with a 18-20-6 record on the season and will play their final regular season game this coming Sunday March 10th as they host the Fort Garry Twins. We hope to end the regular season on win, so please be sure to join us at the Eric Coy arena to cheer on your Charleswood Hawks, Puck drops at 7:30. We hope to see you there.
