Hagersville Hawks on the skids
HAGERSVILLE – The struggling Hagersville Hawks made no ground on anyone this past week in Jr. C Hockey week in Hagersville, and remain in second last spot. Ahead of the Simcoe Storm which is also having a poor start to the 2017 to 2018 season.
Saturday, the Hawks took it on the jaw, 7-3, from the Dunnville Mudcats, in Hagersville.
Hagersville scored first with Jach Carr converting a play started by Wesley Fritz and Hayden Smith to take a 1-0 Hawks lead at 12:07. It didn’t stand for long. Hart Carco and Shayne Butler scored for the Cats.
Dunnville walked all over the Hawks in the second period setting up a 6-2 two period lead. Ralph Taggart scored Hagersville’s second goal. Carr netted his second of the game at 33 seconds hoping to inspire his team, but it didn’t take as Cats scored a powerplay goal at 8:26.
The frustration boiled over in the third with a series of aggression penalties and fights. But in the end, the Hagersville Hawks had lost yet another game and maybe earned a few suspensions.
Coming up for the Hawks is Thursday, Nov. 23rd, in Dundas, and a 7:30 p.m. date with the Simcoe Storm at the Talbot Gardens.
