24th Annual Rob/West a Huge Success!

From October 14-27, 2017, the Charleswood Hawks partnered with Roblin Park Community Centre for the 13th time to host the 24th installment of the Rob/West Fall Classic Tournament. Over the years, this tournament has become known as the pre-eminent early season tournament for Minor Hockey teams in the Winnipeg area that is not to be missed!

As a special thanks to all the “Diggers of the Game” during the Rob/West, the Hawks invite each of them along with their  families to enjoy a night of hockey on the team as their guests of honour.  This year “Digger Night” fell on Friday, November 10th when the Hawks took down the St.Vital Vics with a 2-0 shutout to the delight of the home crowd. The Hawks and Roblin Park Community Centre congratulate all the tournament champions and cannot wait for next year, which brings the 25th Anniversary that is sure not to disappoint!

The Red and Black Make it 4 straight…

In the words of old blue eyes Frank Sinatra, the best revenge is massive success and the Hawks did just that as they avenged a tough 3-2 overtime loss back on September 29th against the Jets at the Coy with a 2-1 overtime victory on Sunday night. Spencer Ferbers opened up the scoring in the first, which gives him a point or more in the last 4 straight. Midway through the second Hawk killer Chase Faulkner notched his 15th of the season on the powerplay to tie the game at one a piece. In the third period Ryan Hall held the fort by turning away 12 shots and 31 shots in total on the evening by the Jets whose GAA moves to an insane 1.07 with a 0.965 save percentage on the season. Then 2:21 into the overtime frame Trevor Szyda put one by Jets goalie Hunter Ploszay on a feed from J.P. Lovell for the win.

The victory puts the Hawks just 4 points back of the Raiders for 1st place in the league.  In addition to Spencer Ferbers 4 game scoring streak, J.P. Lovell and Mitch Justl recorded points on Sunday to give them points in their last 3 games. The boys look to make it 5 straight at the Coy on Friday against the 7th place Fort Garry/Fort Rouge Twins at 7:30pm…BE THERE!
