The Hawkesbury Hawks will be looking to bounce back after a tough pair of weekend losses.

The Hawks fell 5-3 in a road loss to the Rockland Nationals on Sunday, December 5, just two days after dropping a 4-1 decision at home to the league-leading Ottawa Junior Senators.

John Mulvihill had two goals for Rockland in Sunday’s win, with Alexandre Fr√©chette, Nick White and Justin Dauphinais adding singles. Jakson Kirk, Tyler Samodral and Michael Andrews replied for Hawkesbury.

On Friday, December 3, Landon Brownlee staked the Hawks to a 1-0 lead after the first period, but Ottawa replied with a pair of unanswered goals in both the second and third periods for the 4-1 win.

Hawkesbury hosts the Nepean Raiders this Friday, December 10, in a game that starts at 7:30 p.m. On Sunday, December 12, the Hawks travel to Cornwall to face the Colts.

Hawkesbury will host a rare Tuesday game on December 14 against the Brockville Braves. Gametime is 7:30 p.m. at the Robert Hartley Sports Complex.
