Bears swallow disappointing loss against Hawkesbury

Posted on: October 5, 2019

After Friday’s 4:2 away game win against Hawkesbury, the Bears were naturally eager to duplicate their success at Sunday afternoon’s game on home ice. But things turned out much different this time, no poking helped the bear to come out of slumber until it was much too late, and the team had to swallow a disappointing 2:8 loss against Hawkesbury. With 37 shots at the net the Hawks clearly had the advantage against a comparable meager 25 shots by the Bears.

The only goal of the first period was shot by Jeremy Payant at 8:27.

Hawkesbury then moved on to add another four scores during the second period, at 2:19 by Dovar Tinling, shortly after at 3:25 by Matt Gasuik “C”, at 8:25 by Xavier Léveillé, and lastly at 15:11 a powerplay goal by Jason Camp “A”.

The third period didn’t start much better either. Azzaro Tinling “A” shot a powerplay goal at 7:37, followed by a score at 8:29 by Brendan McCarthy. The Bears finally found their way back into the game with a goal by Ryan Richardson at 9:33, assisted by Stuart Martin and Nicolas Lariviere. The Hawks answered less than half a minute later with a score by Azzaro Tinlin “A” at 9:56. A last ditch effort by the Bears was rewarded with a goal at 14:58 by Andrew McKenney, with help from team mates Ryan Richardson and Ethan Nystrom. 

Matt Gasuik “C” (HAW) was awarded First Star of the game, Azzaro Tinling “A” (HAW) Second Star, and the Bear’s Ryan Richardson earned Third Star.
