The Hawkesbury Hawks picked up another win this weekend—their third in a row—to move to 4-0-0-2 on the season.
The Hawks defeated the Kanata Lasers 6-3 on Saturday night in their only game of the weekend, after heavy fog postponed Friday’s game against the Navan Grads.
Taking to the road after playing both games at home last weekend, the Hawks ended the first period down 2-1 after the Lasers scored two goals late in the frame. However, Hawkesbury would take the game back in the second, going up 5-2 courtesy of goals from Zachary Fournier, Mike Nantais, David Jankowski, and Tyler Boivin. The teams would trade goals in the third as the Hawks skated to a third straight win. Michael Marleau and Ryan Donovan also scored for the Hawks in the victory.
Despite getting the win, head coach Rick Dorval was not overly impressed with his team’s play, saying “Although we got the win, we weren’t very good. We played for 30 (mins) and watched for 30 (mins).”
Still, coach Dorval did add that he likes how the team has been developing over the early part of the season.
“There are times of inconsistency but overall, the team has been developing and getting better every game.”
With the win, the Hawks maintain pace with the rest of the division—remaining tied with the Ottawa Jr. Senators in second-place and two points behind the Rockland Nationals for first in the division.
Hawkesbury’s next game comes Thursday in Ottawa against the Jr. Senators, after which they will return home to play the Kemptville 73’s Friday at home. Both games start at 7:30.
