HAGERSVILLE – A win is always good and it’s always fun, but it this case, the Hagersville Hawks 5-4 win over second place Glanbrook on Saturday, felt especially good for the fifth place Hawks in the Bloomfield Conference of the Jr. C ranks.
It didn’t start out on the right skate, as Glanbrook closed the first period leading 2-0 on goals scored by Brad Parish and Connor Maitz.
It took a successful second period penalty shot by Jake Stevenson at 18:59 to get Hagersville going in an otherwise scoreless period.
Tanner Brennecke kept the ball rolling with a powerplay goal at 7:02. Then, 58 seconds later, Wesley Fritz added another and a little over two minutes later, Harrison Larochelle made it 4-2.
Noah Matteson scored Glanbrook’s last goal on a powerplay but it would not be enough to overtake the Hawks.
After starting their four-game home-stand with a win over Port Dover last Saturday, the Hagersville Hawks will be looking for a third home win when they host the Dundas Blues Tuesday night. Saturday Dec. 17th, first place Grimsby will be in town.
