Hawkesbury’s local Junior A hockey team is going through a two-week victory drought. After this weekend’s games, the Hawks have lost the last four games. On Friday evening, the Hawks put up a good fight against the Rockland Nats, but lost in overtime 2-1. Then on Saturday evening, the Hawks were the visitors as they played the Ottawa Junior Senators. The home team pounded Hawkesbury 5-1. Despite this, the Hawkesbury JR A Hawks are still leading their division with 64 points, two points ahead of their closest rivals, the Ottawa Junior Senators.
Sylvain Landers, the Hawkesbury Hawks’ owner, is optimistic for the next game. “The team’s difficulties since a few weeks are due to injuries, but we would rather have those problems now than during the playoffs,” Landers told The Review.
“I’m confident that coach Richard Dorval will find solutions and that the team will be back on track soon.” The next Hawks home game is on Friday January 25 at 7:30 pm as the Kemptville 73’s will be visiting.
