DUNNVILLE — The Hawks still rest in third place, but their meeting with the Dunnville Mudcats on Friday night at the Dunnville Memorial Arena showed a win that needed to snow ball.
The first period ended and the scoreboard had two eggs as neither side could bury. While the following period allowed for a goal by Matt Weston from Wesley Fritz and Eamon Fitzpatrick, the Mudcats returned it and left the contest tied.
It wasn’t until the third period that the Hawks caught flight during a power-play, as Anthony Grigg buried after being set up by Peter Cappucci and Nick Visser. Second later, in a series of repeated cycles, Ralph Taggart found the back of the net twice, fed from both Anthony Grigg and Tycie Cowan. The Mudcats were only able to return one goal with five minutes left and this finalized the game with the Hawks on top, 5-1.
Due to weather implications and out of concern for travelling supporters and athletes, their home game that was set for last Saturday at the Hagersville Arena was postponed. Their next scheduled home game will be on Saturday, January 26 versus the Port Dover Sailors.
