The Hawks were looking for a bounce back win on Friday night when they hosted the Royal Knights and what a bounce back it was. This would be the last meeting between these 2 teams and the Hawks were looking to sweep the season series.
The Knights would open up the scoring in the first, however Matt Lawrence and Quinn Werbowski would score just over 30 seconds apart from one another to go up 2-1. Spencer Ferbers would assist on both goals, while Austin Hesselbart would assist on the 2nd goal.
The 2nd period was an exchange of goals between the 2 teams as River East would score 2 in the first half of the frame, before Taylor Opperman would tie things up at 3 a piece at 8:52. The assist would go to Joben Smith. Just under 2 minutes later, the Knights would go up by one again, however Tanner Mulligan would score 2 goals just 11 seconds apart to give the Hawks the lead! The 2nd goal would prove to be the game winner as well.
Austin Hesselbart would find the back of the net early in the 3rd, with the assist from Spencer Ferbers and Quinn Werbowski. At 11:14 of the frame, Taylor Opperman would get an unassisted goal for his 2nd of the night!
The final score would be 7-4 with shots on goal going in favor of the Hawks at 42-27. The focus would now shift to Sunday evening as your Hawks host St. Vital for their final match up of the regular season. Puck drop is 7:30. We hope to see you there to cheer on your Charleswood Hawks!
