Sunday Afternoon in St James

Sunday afternoon was a rare matinee event between your Charleswood Hawks and the St James Canucks. This would be the last regular season game between the 2 clubs.

Early into the 1st period, at just 6:31, Mitch Justl would get your Hawks on the score sheet with assists from Nate Roffey and Max Gardiner, giving your Hawks a 1-0 lead to end the 1st period.

The Canucks would tie it up in the first minute of the 2nd period, but Sean Robinson would get the lead back on a power play! Mitch Justl would get the lone assist on the goal. Unfortunately St James would find the back of our net, ending the 2 nod frame in a 2-2 tie.

Unfortunately the final 20 minutes were not so favorable for your Hawks as St James would score twice more to make it a 4-2 final for the Canucks.

Time to shake this one off and focus our efforts on our next match up which will be this coming Friday February 22nd at the Eric Coy as we host the Transcona Railer Express. We hope to win the final regular season meeting with them so be sure to come cheer us on! Puck drops at 7:30. We hope to see you there.

Seeing Double

After winning 3 games in a row, your Charleswood Hawks took on the Twins with the hope of extending that winning streak to 4.

Your Hawks came out strong in the 1st period with Matt Lawrence opening up the scoring at the 7:07 mark on a power play goal. The assists went to Joben Smith and Spencer Ferbers. Less than 5 minutes later, at the 12:24 mark, Austin Hesselbart would add another power play marker with the assists from Kyle Nanton and Spencer Ferbers.

The Twins would add a goal of their own before the first 20 minutes were up to end the first period at 2-1 in favor of your Hawks.

The next frame saw 3 goals find their way to the back of the Hawks net, however those would be the only goals scored in the 2nd period, so it would be a 4-2 lead for the Twins after 3 periods of play.

While the 3rd period saw plenty of shots and plenty of penalties, neither side was able to get any more pucks past the goaltenders, ending the game in a 4-2 final for the Twins.

Your Hawks now sit with a 15-16-6 record and head home tonight to host the Stonewall Jets who have lost their last 4 games. Be sure to come cheer us on as we look to get back into the win column!

Hawks look to Continue Winning

The season series between us and the St. Vital Victorias was 2-1 for St. Vital, so Thursday night was a chance for us to even up the series as we faced off on their home ice.

It didn’t take long to get ourselves on the score sheet as Max Gardiner would find the back of the net with the assist going to Mitch Justl. While we out shot St. Vital 13-7, the first period would end in a 1-0 lead for us.

The 2nd period saw shots go 14-7 for St. Vital, and they would also find the back of our net twice, early in the frame to go up 2-1. We weren’t about to let off though, as Sam Maxwell would get his first as a Hawk to even things up at 2 a piece! Congratulations Sam. Keep ’em coming! The goal came at 7:01 of the period with the assist going to Joben Smith and Nate Roffey.

With just over 2 minutes left in the 2nd, St. Vital would get one more goal to end 40 minutes of hockey in a 3-2 lead for them. While the 3rd period once again favored us on the shot clock, we could just not solve St. Vital’s goalie to tie things back up. Ryan Hall would turn away every shot he faced in the 3rd as well, making it a final score of 3-2 for St. Vital.

We now look to finish up our January schedule with a game at home this coming Sunday, January 27th, against the St. James Canucks. We have had this game circled on our calendars for some time now as we will be celebrating a great man by raising Wayne’s banner prior to the game on Sunday. The ceremony begins at 7 pm so be sure to get there early as we anticipate a full barn on Sunday.
