Point Edward Tyke Blackhawks take two over Predators

DECEMBER 16,  2011

The Point Edward Tyke Blackhawks faced off this past weekend against rival Lambton Shores Predators.

In back to back games pitting last years two top teams against one another the Blackhawks came away with two wins and four hard earned points!
Saturdays home game would see the Hawks jump out to and early one to nothing lead over the visitor less then a minute into the contest when Ryan Cossa netted the first goal of the game. Leading the way offensively Cameron McCarthy added 3 goals with his 3rd coming just after the Preds had tied the game at three to give the Blackhawks a lead they would not relinquish on route to a 6 - 3 win! Again, the score sheet was full of assists showing the home team had to work as a unit to score on a good Lambton Shores goalie. "Performance Player of the Game" Ben Crombeen showed excellent hustle and determination on multiple backchecking opportunities!
On Sunday the Blackhawks traveled across the county to play their first road game of the season in Thedford, ON. The stands were "rocking" as a full contingent of "Point Fans" made the trip and were not disappointed with the intensity shown on the ice! Lambton Shores quickly jumped out to a two nothing lead on the first shift of the game before the Hawks could conquer their emotions. Bearing down as a team the Blawkhawks used a group effort to claw back and take the lead midway though the game. Goalie Nic Hocking was pivotal not only in recording the teams first road win of the season, but, backstopping both weekend games with style! Playing all over the ice the coaching staff recognized Isaac Oliphant as the teams "Performance Player of the Game" in the 7 - 3 win!
The Tyke Blackhawks next take the ice this Saturday, December 17th when they host the East Lambton Eagles at 10am at the Point Edward Memorial Arena.
