The Hawkesbury Hawks' offense had a big night, peppering the Rockland Nationals with 47 shots throughout the game, to go along with Matthew Petizian's shutout. The Hawkesbury Hawks took the lead early in the first on a goal from Nicolas Guillemette and never looked back.
David Jankowski did his part, adding 3 points (1 goal, 2 assists) and Chris Smith delivered for his team with 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist).
In the first, Guillemette opened the scoring for the Hawks with what turned out to be the game winning goal at 4:30 with helpers from teammates Craig and Boivin.
In the second, Beaudin-Tougas netted a goal at 1:37 with a helper from Gasuik. Jankowski deposited a goal at 16:56 with assists from his linemates, Smith and Anderson.
In the third period, Fournier scored a goal at 3:38 with helpers from his linemates, Jankowski and Anderson. Smith put in a goal at 13:56 with an assist from fellow Hawks forward Jankowski. O’neal netted a goal at 16:02 with a helper from Frazee.
Hawkesbury’s victory was in no doubt helped out by Petizian’s shutout, as he stopped all 34 of the shots he faced. Petizian’s counterpart, Storr, also had a big night, managing to stop 41 of 47, but ultimately fell short.
This win brings the Hawkesbury Hawks’ record to (12-5-0-0).
