Point Edward Tyke Blackhawks Win Home Opener
DECEMBER 7,  2011

The Point Edward Tyke Blackhawks opened the season with an impressive 11-1 win over the visiting Strathroy White Jr. Rockets this past Saturday December 3, at Point Edward Memorial Arena.

The Blackhawks notched their first goal of the season on rookie Dylan Sutherland's 1st career goal five minutes into the contest and never looked back.

Tyke veteran Wil Vandenboom, the teams only returning member from last years squad led the team with 2 goals and 2 assists. Sutherland, Cameron McCarthy and Ben Crombeen also had 2 goals apiece including career 1st for all three.

With a team comprised of 16 rookie skaters the coaching staff was very, very impressed with the amount of passing and the game sheet would tell the same story as many of the Hawks posted a multiple assist game, showing team work gets the job done! Other career firsts were notched when Alex Simpson, Ryan Cossa and Owen Brown scored goals in their season debut.

An 11-1 win did not come without stellar goaltending either, as Zach MacDonald stopped multiple breakaways late in the game to preserve the win. Nicholas Hocking was awarded the "Performance Player of the Game" by his coaching staff for his hard work and listening skills during the contest and showed excellent leadership by passing to open teammates early in the game.

The Blackhawks next take the ice Saturday, December 10th at 10am when they host the Lambton Shores Predators in the first of a home and home series this weekend.
