Hawkesbury Hawks landed in Kemptville 73’s barn for a Sunday afternoon challenge as Nick Bond got peppered with 47 shots of rubber and another loss of 5-1. Hawkesbury and Kemptville closed out the first scoreless, with 73’s being hammered with 14 SOG and Peter Brooks receiving 7 SOG.
Nantais, with Fournier, to Jeremy Cote side of net to bang at the pads with fluke shot that Bond couldn’t squeeze and dribble over the line to put the Hawks on the board at 4:17. Another crazy goal, as Jankowsky over to Fournier to ring it back to Kieran Craig past a surprised stopper at 6:31 to make it 2 to zip for the Hawks. Liam Hunter, in his first game back, rifled one through the middle slot of traffic top shelf after Daskas, with Williams, give and go to spoil Peter Brooks SO attempt at 13:29.
Hawkesbury owned the final twenty, when Mike Nantais, assisted by Belec and Marleau, opened up the flood gates at 5:05. Cote, with Beaudin-Tougas, set up Kari Belec at 14:27 to make it a runaway of 4 to 1 for Hawkesbury. Alec Beaudin-Tougas, assisted by Cote, with Gasiuk to wrap up a win for the Hawks at 18:20.
Friday night’s battle with Nepean Raiders was aggressive, end-to-end action packed exciting crash and bang contest, to award Kemptville 73’s their 2-1 win. Nepean Raiders’ Alexander Bourhas, with helpers from Donovan and Belisle, to beat Cooper Lukenda with a loose scramble on his doorstep and open the first at 3:33. Raiders SOG 12 to 73’s 10, with both goalies putting on a clinic.
Raiders with man advantage, 73’s special team Beaton laid out his assignment, ahead to Patterson flying up left side, across to Ashton Fry to hammer it top shelf over Kyle Alaverdy for SHG at 10:00 to tie at one. Unfortunately, after 73’s captain taking aggressive hacking by opposition, decided to retaliate and remove his contribution to the effort.
Final twenty, as Cooper Lukenda stood on his head to keep the boys in the game, with both squads having opportunities. Domitrovic cycled low on the attack, back to Bondy on point, cross ice to Matthew Titus with a razzle dazzle stick handling to rifle it through the pipes at 17:16. Kemptville 73’s PK were effective as Nepean had 6 PP attempts to Kemptville 3 attempts.
Kemptville 73’s have time to heal and rally together to face Smiths Falls Bears in their den on Thursday, February 9.
We would love to hear from the fans about your interpretation and thoughts of the games.
Next home game is Saturday, February 10, at 7:30 pm, when the Carleton Place Canadians visit the Municipal Centre….Hockey with EDGE.
