HAGERSVILLE — Saturday night at the Hagersville Arena, the first place Glanbrook Rangers easily handled the Hawks 5-0 followed by Port Dover Sailors 3-2 win Sunday in Dover.
The Hawks have cooled down considerably from the last couple of weeks of having the hot hand in the Jr. C.
Sunday, the Sailors took an early 2-0 lead on goals scored by Nigel Dantas and George Kapralos before the 3:31 point in the game. Ralph Taggart cut that lead in half at 7:58 with a power play goal. The defence and goaltending tightened up for both teams from there on.
Despite being outshot 14-7, it was the Sailors who posted the only goal of the second period with Lynden Lemoire doing the damage for Dover to make it a 3-1 game with 20 minutes remaining. The Hawks defence disappeared in the third as Port Dover outshot the Hawks 18-9, but Hagersville, with goalie Justin Easter on the bench for an extra attacker, registered the last goal of the game at 19:50 for the 3-2 final.
This week’s schedule includes a tilt with the Grimsby Peach Kings in Hagersville, Saturday Dec. 15th, and Wednesday night in Grimsby. Both games begin at 7:30.
