Hag Hawks position selves for playoffs


HAGERSVILLE – Christian Monochino, scored two goals to help the Hagersville Hawks past the Dunnville Jr. Mudcats 4-1 Saturday night in Dunnville. Most of the damage was done in the first period as Westly Fritz and Monochino built a 3-0 Hagersville lead after 20 minutes.

Dunnville’s lone goal was scored by Riley Quesnelle on a powerplay after Hagersville’s Ralph Taggart and Mudcats’ Luke Rowe became embroiled late in the period.

Six Nations’ Shawn General scored Hagersville’s last goal to go with an assist for the 4-1 win. Although he didn’t see nearly as much action as Dunnville’s Brennan Head, Hagersville goaltender Stephen Tierney had to make some good saves to keep the Mudcats at bay.

After last weekend’s games, the Hagersville Hawks are in fourth place but only one point out of third and holding a one game advantage over the Port Dover Sailors. The Hawks will have an opportunity to move up the standings this Thursday, January 26th when they fly to Niagara Falls to face the Riverhawks who are in second last place in the division.

This all makes Friday night’s clash between Hagersville and Port Dover at the Hagersville Arena a very important game for both teams with only a handful of games left before the post season playoff matchups begin. Gametime is 7:30 p.m.
