Your Charleswood Hawks took a short drive to St James last night to take on the Canucks with the hopes of extending our winning streak to 4, while the Canucks were looking to extend their streak to 3 after coming off a tight game in Stonewall earlier this week. The last 2 meetings have been decided by just one goal so this one promised to be a good game again.
Austin Hesselbart opened up the scoring on a power play at the 11:59 mark of the first period, with the assists going to Matt Lawrence and Joben Smith. St James would get on the board just under 2 minutes later, ending the first 20 minutes of play in a 1-1 tie.
While the 2nd and 3rd periods saw no scoring, there was plenty of action on the ice as Ryan Hall was kept busy, stopping shot after shot from the Canucks. The score remained tied at 1 a piece after 60 minutes so it was off to OT we went, where the Canucks would find the back of the net to end the game with a final score of 2-1. While it was a disappointing end to the game, we were able to walk away with a point in hand in what was yet another tight game between the 2 clubs.
It’s been a great week of hockey for our boys and now it’s time for a little rest until Friday when it’s another Hockey Night in Charleswood as we host the Stonewall Jets for the first time this season. The Jets are up 1-0 on the season series and we hope to even things up. Puck drops at 7:30 at Eric Coy. We hope to see you there to cheer on your Charleswood Hawks!
Friday night your Charleswood Hawks hosted the Riels with the hope of continuing our winning streak.
The Riels opened up the scoring early in the 1st however Austin Hesselbart found to back of the net on a power play for his 3rd of the season to tie things up after 20 minutes. The assists went to Matt Lawrenceand Joben Smith.
The 2nd period saw more action from Austin Hesselbart as he got an unassisted goal at the 10:49 mark of the period to put your Hawks up 2-1 after 40.
The final frame saw quite a bit of action as the Riels tied things up early in the period however your Hawks would take the lead once again as Joben Smith – with the help of Kyle Nanton – scored at the 8:21 mark for his 9th of the season. The Riels would tie it up again just a few minutes later but we weren’t done yet. Quinn Werbowski (assisted by Joben Smith) netted his 5th of the season and Taylor Opperman would get his 2nd of the season with an empty net goal with just 46 seconds left of the game, giving your Hawks their 3rd win in a row!
It’s a short break as we head to St James to take on the Canucks who have a 2-0 lead on the season series and our boys are looking to get a win to extend our winning streak to 4. It’s an earlier start tonight as the puck drops at 6:30. Come join us to cheer on your Hawks – it’ll be a dandy!
The 3rd period saw the Twins get one back with just under 3 minutes left to play, but we fought hard and kept it that way for a final score of 2-1, giving us a 6-8-3 record on the season so far.
There were plenty of pucks flying at the goaltenders last night as the shots were 37-39 for the Twins. Ryan Hall was once again outstanding for us in net.
Now we head back home for a big game this coming Friday as we host the Riels for the second time this season. The series is tied up at one a piece, so come on down to cheer on your Charleswood Hawks as we look to go one up in the series. Puck drop is at 7:30 at Eric Coy. We hope to see you there – it’ll be a dandy!!
