Blackhawks Come From Behind Win

DECEMBER 18,  2011


The Point Edward Tyke Blackhawks hosted the East Lambton Eagles Saturday before a packed Point Edward Memorial Arena Crowd! With the home team coming off back to back win the weekend before the crowd was not expecting its home team to fall behind on the scoreboard early and often.

The Eagles would open the scoring early in the game and a powerful offence was difficult for the Hawks to manage throughout most of the game. With the Eagles leading the contest 5 - 3 late in the game the Blackhawks would turn to their goalie for some much need inspiration as Thomas Guthrie needed to make multiple saves to keep the Hawks close.
To start the late game rally Zach MacDonald netted his first career goal and the Hawks would continue to pour on the offence hemming the East Lambton visitors in their own end for much of the games final ten minutes! With minutes to play in the game "Performance Player" Cameron McCarthy would energize the crowd with 4 straight goals to seal the 8 - 6 victory!





Other Blackhawks finding their way on to the score sheet include Dylan Sutherland with 2 goals and Alex Simpson who went "top shelf" mid way though the game drawing a few oohs and ahhs from the crowd! As always the coaching staff was incredible pleased with the teamwork and attitude of it's players.




The Point Edward Tyke Blackhawks now have a lengthy Christmas break before heading out on the road for 5 straight road games. Their next game will be in January to play rival Strathroy Blue at the Gemini Arena on Saturday, January 8th at 3pm.
