Sunday night was the final game of the regular season for your Charleswood Hawks as they hosted the Twins one final time this season. The previous match ups between these 2 teams have been tight games with very few goals scored and this one would be no different.
The Twins would take an early lead in the game as they would score half way through the first period, but Ryan Hall stood tall between the pipes, turning away shot after shot all game.
While there was no scoring in the 2nd frame, the Charleswood Hawks would apply some great pressure, out shooting the Twins 14-11 in the period.
It would come right down to the wire in the 3rd period as the Twins were holding on to their 1-0 lead throughout most of the game. However, with just 58 seconds left, Nolan Sekundiak would find the back of the Twins net to tie it up! Austin Hesselbart and Matt Lawrence would assist on the goal. Extra time would be needed to resolve this one, however the Twins would get the win for this one early into the 1st period.
While it wasn’t the result the Hawks were hoping for, it was another great game and an exciting one to end the regular season schedule with a final record of 18-20-7. Be sure to check back regularly as more information about the first round will be coming soon!
Wednesday night your Charleswood Hawks took to the road to take on what would be the last regular season game between the Hawks and the Twisters.
It wasn’t long before the Twisters found the back of the Hawks net, early in the first and they would add another to go up 2-0 after the first period. While the second period was a more evenly matched 20 minutes of hockey, the Twisters would find another 2 goals to go up 4-0 after 40 minutes of play.
Down but not out, your Hawks would claw their way back in the 3rd as your captain, Spencer Ferbers, would find twine at 2:16 of the 3rd, with the assists from Quinn Werbowski and Matt Lawrence. At 14:18 of period, Nolan Sekundiak would get his first of the season! The assists would go to Matt Lawrence and Joben Smith. Austin Hesselbart would also get an unassisted marker late in the 3rd, however the ever hopeful 3rd period comeback was just not meant to be as Pembina would add another 2 goals in the period for a final score of 6-3.
Final shots on goal were 39-33 in favor of Pembina.
