Sunday night the Charleswood Hawks played host to St Vital for the final time this regular season. 3 of the last 4 meetings have been decided by one goal so this one promised to be another great match up.
The Hawks were out shot in the 1st frame, 18-8, and the score sheet would reflect this as well as St. Vital would go up 2-0 after 20 minutes.
In true Hawks fashion, they would fight their way back with a fantastic 2nd period as Quinn Werbowski would score early in the frame, with the assists from Joben Smith and Taylor Opperman. At 17:53 Matt Lawrence, with the assists from Kyle Nanton and Joben Smith, would capitalize on a power play to tie the game up. With less than a minute left in the period, Taylor Opperman would put the Hawks up by one, with the assist from Joben Smith.
St Vital would tie the score again the 3rd frame on a power play, however Sean Robinson would get the lead back at 8:52 with assists from Spencer Ferbers and Mitch Justl. Unfortunately that is where things would get away from the Hawks as St. Vital would add 2 more goals to end the game with a 5-4 final score in favor of St. Vital.
The next game for your Charleswood Hawks will be this coming Wednesday March 6th against Pembina Valley. This is the re-scheduled game from February 24th. Puck drops at 8 pm at the Morris Recreation Complex. We hope to see you there to cheer on your boys!
