Major Bantam A Hawks are Port Huron Bound!
Submitted By webmaster on Thursday, January 3, 2019
With the holiday season upon us the Major Bantam A Hawks found themselves in the prestigious Silver Stick qualifying tournament.

Through the first two games the Hawks dominated however the Hawks came up against a strong team from Burlington in Game 3.  The action was end to end with the Hawks coming out of the game with a tie.  The Hawks found themselves seated second in their division and would take on another team from Burlington in the quarter final.  In the semi-final, the Hawks found themselves up against a strong team from Thorold.  If it wasn’t for some great penalty killing efforts by the Hawks and the play of goaltender Danny Rose, the Hawks would have easily headed home empty handed.  Instead, the Hawks persevered through the adversity with Blair Krawchyk scoring in over-time to send the Hawks to the final.

n the final, the Hawks met up with Burlington Eagles yet again.  The first period saw the Hawks come out flying however they were up against a strong goaltender from Burlington and had nothing to show for their efforts.  The Hawks tied up the game at 1’s early into the third period on a cannon from Danny Dyson.  Alex Tasker then fired a shot from the blue line that found its way past a screened goalie to give the Hawks the lead.  Burlington quickly stormed back with a power play goal to tie up the game and sending it to OT.  Through the first two periods of overtime, nothing was settled.  The format then sent the teams to the dreaded shootout.  Cambridge’s Owen Ireton started the shootout off with a beauty.  Unfortunately Burlington stormed back with a nice goal of their own to tie it up.  As the teams traded goals again, with Owen “Mayday” May hammering a beauty home it was in the 7th round of shooters where Cambridge’s Brady McLaren rifled a beauty bar down to give the Hawks the lead and put the pressure back on Burlington.  Loving every minute of the challenge, goaltender Carter Rawn stood tall in his net stymieing the Burlington player and sealing the Hawks’ ticket for the International Silver Stick! 

Well done Hawks – definitely proud of you and best of luck in the International tournament!
