Hagersville Hawks showing signs of life

HAGERSVILLE — If you are in need of points in hockey, you better start by picking the low-hanging fruit first. That is what the Hagersville Hawks did, Saturday, in Jr. C Hockey Action. You don’t get much lower-ganging fruit than the Dunnville Mudcats so far this season. The Hagersville fans and players got a rare chance to relish the taste of a victory with a 5-1 win, their second of the season.

They also had the opportunity to practice their powerplay unit, scoring the first three goals of game with a man advantage. Nick Visser got his first of the night on a powerplay in the first period and put in a second one at 2:27 of the second period. Peter Cappucci added a third, also on a powerplay.

Dunnville got on the scoreboard with a poswerplay of their own to open the third period but Brendan Judson scored and Visser collected his hat trick by the final buzzer with the Hagersville Hawks celebrating a 5-1 win after a penalty-filled third period.

Jesse Schoeman faced 46 shots in the loss while Hagersville’s Jemie Ferguson earned the win facing 21 shots.

The Hawks hope to build on Saturdays’ win but they are facing some very still opposition. Thursday night, the sixth place Hawks fly into Hamilton to face the Huskies at the Chedoke Arena, in Hamilton. The Huskies are two points up on the Hawks with eight points, but hold two games in hand. Then, on Saturday night, Oct. 13, the Niagara RiverHawks have an appointment with the Hawks at the Hagersville Arena, at 7 pm.
