Friday night was a chance for your Charleswood Hawks to get back at Stonewall who handed them a loss the last time these 2 teams met. It was also the first night of the MMJHL Showcase, which brought the game to the Bell MTS IcePlex.
Early in the first, Stonewall would take a 1-0 lead with a power play goal. Your Hawks weren’t going to let up though, so both sides would head back to the dressing room to get ready for another period of hockey.
The second frame saw your Hawks outshoot the Jets 12-11 and as Stonewall got in some penalty trouble, Charleswood would capitalize on the opportunity to tie things up. At 14:55 Max Gardiner would tie the game with the assists from Spencer Ferbers and Mitch Justl.
The third frame was another evenly matched period of hockey that saw your Hawks outshoot the Jets 11-9, however neither side would find the back of the net, so more time would be needed to resolve this one.
Another 5 minutes of 3 on 3 hockey just wouldn’t be enough though as neither team was able to score so this one needed to go to a shootout!
Unfortunately the shootout would not go in favor of your Hawks. The final score would be 2-1 for Stonewall.
Be sure to join us tonight as we play another game at the MTS IcePlex as a part of the MMJHL Showcase. Your Charleswood Hawks take on the Riels tonight. The Hawks have a 2-1 lead on the season series and they look to increase that lead tonight. Puck drops at 6:45. We hope to see you there.
