The Hagersville Hawks have vaulted into third place in the Jr. C Conference standings, leap-frogging over the Port Dover Sailors who were one point behind the Hawks after defeating Glanbrook 7-2 at the Hagersville Arena, Saturday night.
The Sailors had a chance to regain their perch Sunday with a win against the Grimsby Peach Kings Sunday but could not seize the opportunity.
Saturday’s game was much closer than the score may indicate; however, the big story was Stephen Tierney in the Hagersville net who turned away 42 of 44 shots. Offensively, Tanner Brennecke and Matt Weston found the mark three times each while Ryan Frost added another for Hagersville.
Next action for the Hawks is Wednesday, Nov. 9th, in Glanbrook, before returning to the Hawks Nest for a two game home stand against Niagara Saturday night at 7:30 p.m., and Dunnville, Monday night at 8:30 p.m.
