HAWKS FINISH OFF THE WEEKEND WITH A WIN

Heading into Sunday’s game, your Charleswood Hawks were looking to rebound from the loss on Friday & rebound they did! The Vics opened the scoring at 2:39 of the first period & just over 10 minutes later, Matt Lawrence (Nanton) scored to tie things up – his 3rd of the season. After a quick St. Vital goal in the second, Max Fisher (Justl) & Sean Robinson (Roffey & Ferbers) both found the back of the net for their first goals of the season – Fisher’s first as a Hawk ! ! ! The Vics tied things up once more with just over a minute remaining in the second. The third period saw quite a bit of action with both sides capitalizing on penalties. Quinn Werbowski (Justl & Smith) beat the goaltender just 1:07 into the period for his first of the season & the Vics responded about 4 minutes later – tying things up at 4 at the end of regulation. At 4:32 in the overtime period Mitch Justl (Ferbers & Werbowski) scored a beauty – his first of the season.

Cheer on the boys as they look to make it 2 wins in a row, when they host the Pembina Valley Twisters Friday night – puck drop 7:30 at Eric Coy. Come early to support your Charleswood Hawks – this one ought to be a dandy!

HAWKS GET SHUT OUT ON A VISIT TO THE HOOD

Well folks, we sure didn’t get the outcome we’d hoped for from Friday night’s road trip. The Raiders continued their winning streak as the Hawks dropped their first of the season in regulation. The final score was 6-0, with the Raiders out shooting our boys in all 3 periods. This game had no shortage of penalties with 11 in total, resulting in 5 Hawk power plays. Unfortunately, our boys couldn’t get one passed Jeremy Pikel, who stopped all 27 shots he faced. We’d like to thank the Raiders Junior Hockey Club for donating the 50/50 proceeds from our game to “Hockey Heroes” in honour of Wayne’s commitment to minor sports.

HAWKS GET THE WIN #FORWAYNE

Tonight was quite a night Hawkey fans! Before the game commenced, Evan Duncan took a few moments to pay tribute to Wayne. This was followed by a moment of silence for our fallen Commander in Chief. Both the Hawks and Riels sported “WD” stickers on their helmets tonight in his honour. The scoring was opened by Dawson Braun of the Riels at 3:28 of the first period while on the PP. Our Hawks responded at 18:46 of the same period, as Joben Smith scored his first of the season. The second period saw only one goal, Matt Lawrence (also his first of the year) made it 2-1 Hawks at 14:54. There was a lot of action (& even a fight) in the third ! Jacob Tresoor made it a tie game at 11:21, only to have the game winner scored a minute and a half later by Kyle Nanton (another first) on the PP! Matt Lawrence and Joben Smith each got their second of the game later in the third to make it a 5-2 final! Shoutout to Joben and Kyle who had 4 and 3 point nights respectively – good work tonight gentlemen! Ryan Hall had another great night as he stopped 40 of the 42 shots he faced. Tonight was more than just a hockey game, it was about our Hawks family coming together. Wayne, we hoped you enjoyed the game tonight, it was a dandy – we’ve saved your spot at the Coy for whenever you look in on your boys.
