HAGERSVILLE — The Hagersville Hawks have fallen into sixth place in the eight-team Niagara District Jr. C loop, after losing 4-2 to the first place Peach Kings Sunday in Grimsby, and dropping a 4-0 decision at home Saturday night to the Dundas Blues.

Sunday night, the Hag-hawks fell behind 3-0 before Jacob Soloman put Hagersville in the game at 12:30 of the second period. Grimsby kept the pressure on and forged the 4-2 win. Hagersville’s Kyle Phibbs scored at 16:21, but it wasn’t enough to make a difference.

Right from the pre-game warm-ups, it was evident that Dundas Blues’ goaltender Brock Novak was “in the pocket,” as they say. Novak led the visiting Blues to a 4-0 win over the Hagersville Hawks Saturday night at the Hagersville Arena.

Novak stood up to 41 shots for the well-earned shut out while Curtis Dortenzio made 33 saves on 37 shots on goal for the Hawks.

Cam McConnell led the Blues with two goals with singles going to Ben Sim and Mitch Moriarity.

It was not for a lack of effort by Hagersville that the game went the way it did. In the first five minutes of the game it looked like the Hawks were ready to roll, but the momentum shifted after Novak frustrated several good scoring chances.

Dortenzio was stung by Sim’s screen shot from the high slot at 9:39 of the first period. Then at 14:36, McConnell caught the Hawks goaltender leaning the wrong way and fired a quick shot for the 2-0 lead.

McConnell struck again at 4:51 with Travis Bell in the box for roughing to lift the Dundas lead to 3-0.

Hagersville’s Clinton Millard lost his composure completely early in the third period as he and Dundas’s Zac Mihais duked it out only 21 seconds into the period. The battle began with a charging call on Millard.

Sunday, the Hawks had an easier time with the Grimsby Peach Kings
