Hot off their championship performance in the Mount St. Charles Holiday Face-Off, the hockey Hawks resumed RIIL competition by once again taking the ice against our archrivals, LaSalle, this past Saturday night at Lynch Arena. Once again, our guys left the ice at evening's end with their unbeaten record intact, going to 4-0-1 in league play with their 3-1 win over the Rams.
The defense and goaltending from both teams were outstanding throughout the course of the contest, with Christian Maselli stopping 24 shots for the Hawks and LSA's Tyler Walsh preventing 27 of the attempts on his net. The Hawks' three goals came off the sticks of seniors Jon Finelli and Andrew Fera and freshman Patrick Creamer. Two of the goals were on power plays, and Fera's was highlighted as the #1 play of the week on the Cox High School Sports Show. The Hawks' three goals can be seen here:
The Hawks are in action next against the Barrington Eagles, this Friday night at 8:30 pm at the Smithfield rink.
