Lakers win best of three against Hawks

The Hockey Central Midget A Lakers played against the Maskwacis Hawks last Friday at the NexSource Centre and won 7-4

The Hockey Central Midget A Lakers played against the Maskwacis Hawks last Friday at the NexSource Centre and won 7-4. The win marks the second out of three games the Lakers have won in their series against the Hawks thus far.

The game started out in the Hawks favour as they scored the two goals in the first period.

The Lakers regrouped in the second period and at 17 minutes and 40 seconds, Laker Austin McGregor scored the team’s first goal of the game.

After their inaugural goal of the night, the Lakers kept the puck flying at the Hawks’ net.

Assisted by teammates Cole Edwards and Kieran Bulloch, Trysten Sylvester scored three goals during the game.

Head coach Mike Nesbitt commented on Sylvester’s playing and said he led his team by example.

“He’s a great hockey player and we’re thankful to have had him all year,” Nesbitt said.

Even though the Lakers started out slow they picked it up and played with intensity and teamwork as the night went one.

Nesbitt said his third year players are the leaders and make sure the job gets done, with the rest of the players following by their example.

“They worked their butts off,” Nesbitt said.

Nesbitt said he liked watching the come back after seeing the first period work in the Hawks’ favour.

“We fought back and got into the game,” Nesbitt said.

In order to score the first goal Austin McGregor said he picked up his momentum he said he went wide, skated and scored.

“He had one spot above his shoulder open and I got it,” McGregor said. “I think that’s what motivated us getting that one goal and we started going.”

“We were a little slow in the first period but then we all woke up and played together as a team. We didn’t give up and that’s probably the best part.”
