HAWKS GO ON THIRD PERIOD ATTACK TO EDGE WINGS

June 4, 2017

Senior A League - Round 10  Game 1

Blackhawks 5 - Redwings 4

 

 

The Adelaide Blackhawks found their legs in the third period, storming back with four goals to edge the Adelaide Redwings 5 - 4 in a tightly contested Senior A League match earlier this week at the Ice Arena.

 

It was a much earned win for the Hawks, who improved their record to 3-4 on the season, less than two wins back of the third place Falcons who have played two more games.

 

Both teams were tied at 1-1 after the opening period, with the Wings holding a 3 - 12 edge going into the last period of play.

 

Adam Szuster led the Blackhawks scoring with two goals, with single tallies going to Kyle Collier, Paul Joyce, and Dylan Collier.

 

Chad McMurren, Nik Dukovac, Reggie Mattchoss, and Jed Rillera replied for the Wings.  The loss denied the Wings (5 - 2 - 0 - 1) the opportunity to take sole possession of first place from the idle Adelaide Tigers.

 

"It was a really hard fought game. As a team we have been getting stronger and stronger and our never-say-die attitude really came  through in this one. To come from two goals down and run over the top of the Redwings shows that the Blackhawks have a lot of heart.  Everyone chipped in and did what they had to do.  It was a great game to be a part of" said Szuster following the win.

 

The Tribe out-shot the Wings 31 - 26 with goalie Charlie Wragg picking up the win, while Jo Phillis turned aside 21 shots in the net for the Wings.

 

Both sides will be back on the ice on Sunday 18 June when the Redwings clash with the Tigers in a battle for top spot on the A League ladder, starting at 7:00 pm, while the Blackhawks will play the Falcons in an 8:30 pm encounter.
