The boys varsity hockey team returned to the regular season after almost a month. The Hawks played against Central Catholic, who were just under the Hawks in the season standings. However, after a full game and a shootout, the Hawks escaped with two points and the win.

The game was slow to start with no goals being scored in the first period. Then the Hawks broke the ice with a goal from junior Luke McLinden. This goal would remain the only score until the third period, where Central scored two goals, which briefly put them in the lead. Though, the Hawks were not done yet and instead battled back with a late third-period goal from sophomore Joey Wandrisco, which tied the game 2-2 and sent the Hawks into overtime.

After three minutes of three-on-three overtime with no score, the teams headed to a shootout. The shootout went to eight men, but the Hawks prevailed with JC Bele, Austin Read, and George Tomko all finding the back of the net. Combined with the help of senior goalie Nick Guimond, who stopped six of eight of the Central Catholic shooters, the Hawks pulled out the win.

When asked about his game-winning goal, senior George Tomko humbly replied,  “The character on our team really helped to get the win. Without everyone playing their parts, I wouldn’t have been able to help the team out.”

This is the second consecutive regular season game that has gone into overtime for the Hawks. The Hawks return to the ice against North Allegheny on Thursday, Jan. 17, so come support the 7-4 Hawks at the Spencer Family YMCA!
