Minor Atom MD Hawks win Preston International
Submitted By Jason Clyde on Friday, January 16, 2015
Hawks Mount 3rd Period Come Back to Win Preston International Tournament.

The team went into the Championship Game having won the night before in a comeback in double overtime.   They came out firing but quickly went down 5-1 to the Kitchener Red team.  One thing I can say is this team never gives up.  

With Bevan and Colderly between the pipes holding strong, the team started to fight back hard.   Pettitt, Clyde & Pedersen kept digging hard and using their Defense Merritt and Singh to get pucks to the net.  Pedersen was able to capitalize and bang in a juicy rebound for his 2nd of the game.  Next Carpenter, Labreque and Kent kept the pressure on, winning battle after battle, with Bradley and Lynch holding the blue line strong and keeping the puck in the zone.  The line potted another goal to bring the Hawks within 2 goals.  Pressure was the name of the game in the 3rd period and the Hawks didn’t stop.  Paquette, Lapierre and Fleury kept pressing in both ends, back checking hard to cause a turn over and with a great pass from Hutchinson, Russo broke down the right side beating the Rangers D and got the Hawks within one.  With under a minute left in the game the line of Pettitt, Clyde and Pedersen took to the ice again and pressed the action down low which opened up a pass from Clyde back to Merritt letting a shot from the point with 3 seconds left on the clock. The puck feel in front of the Rangers' netminder and with 1.8 seconds left Pedersen buried his 3rd goal knotting the game a 5 and sending the Hawks fans into frenzy.

Overtime again.  One minute into the overtime Kitchener took a penalty and with 4 on 3 Julian decided it enough was enough.  He picked up speed and took it down the right side beating 2 of 3 Rangers defenders; with the net in site he ripped a shot beating the goalie glove side and bar down completing the comeback and winning the championship. 

There is not a member of the team who did not contribute a point or two in the tournament and not a single member who did not give it 110%.   The team showed depth strength and perseverance and the ability to never give up.

Out of four tournament entered, two firsts and one second is outstanding.  The boys are playing as a team and the only thing we can hope for going forward is that maybe they could take a lead in the first instead of being the comeback kings. 

GO HAWKS GO!
