The Glengarry News - - Sports In The Glens - Sean Bray

The U18 Hawkes­bury Hawks hockey team ad­vanced to the HEO ‘AAA’ league play­off semifi­nals, af­ter oust­ing the Kemptville 73s on Mon­day, in game three of their quar­ter-fi­nal se­ries.

The Hawks sur­ren­dered the first goal in the open­ing frame, but ral­lied with a pair in the third to pre­vail 2-1.

Hawkes­bury only needed to tie this game to ad­vance, as they led the four-point se­ries head­ing into the March 11 match.

The se­ries, which was played en­tirely in Ot­tawa, opened on March 6, when, once again, the Hawks had to bat­tle from be­hind. This time, it was a goal by Alexan­dria’s Felix Sauve, a de­fence­man, which sal­vaged a point, in the 1-1 tie.

Game two, by con­trast, saw Hawkes­bury build a 2-0 lead, only to see the 73s draw even. The Hawks won it in over­time, when Sauve set up the win­ning marker.

The U18 Hawks will next face Rock­land, start­ing March 19. The other semi se­ries will fea­ture Smiths Falls and Pembroke.
