Mixed fortunes for Hawks last weekend

U13s struggle, while U18s are victorious

The Winterhawks had mixed fortunes last weekend when they took on teams from Prince Rupert and Smithers.

The U13 team (PeeWee Reps) lost both their games to the team from Smithers, taking a licking on Saturday with a 13 – 0 score, returning on Sunday determined to make up for the previous game. The team improved, losing by 5 – 0 and picking up valuable game experience.

The U13s are a new rep team – the division didn’t have a rep team last year and is comprised of a lot of younger players

The U18s (Midget Reps) fared better, taking on the Prince Rupert Seawolves on Saturday and Sunday in the Tamitik Arena.

The spirited team played fast games on both days, winning both its games, 7 – 4 on Saturday and 5 – 1 on Sunday.
