The varsity ice hockey team continues their winning streak with a 10-1 victory over the Mount Lebanon Blue Devils. The team has amassed an eight-game winning streak in the regular season. The Hawks are now 13-4 on the season and sit third in the PIHL standings.

On Thursday, Feb. 14, the Hawks faced off against the Blue Devils for the second time this season. The first meeting between the two gave the Hawks one of their four losses. This time around,¬†however, the Hawks had the Blue Devils’ number.

Which in this case, happened to be ten. This was the most goals the Hawks have scored in one game throughout the season.

Three goals came in the first period, two of which from senior Thomas Worcester.

By the end of the second, the Hawks had scored a total of six goals and only had given up just one.

Finally, in the third, the Hawks scored four more and junior defenseman Ryan McLinden had three, resulting in his first hat trick of the season.

McLinden had this to say about his performance: ” I wasn’t worried about the scoring, just working hard, and knowing the opportunities will come.”

The Hawks only have one more game in the regular season and it is against the Peters Township Indians on Tuesday, Feb. 19.

The Hawks will be battling for a first-place seed going into playoffs.

Good luck to the Hawks as they close out the season!
