The season so far…

Now that we’ve had two games behind us, we’re getting ready for the 3rd game against the Radboud Saints.

The first game was a good warmup round to see how the new members played together with the old against the Slapping Studs from Enschede. The game was won in convincing fashion with 0-11. (0-7, 0-3, 0-1), resulting in the first shutout of the season for our goalie Martijn van Maanen.

The second game was our most important home game of the season, against the champions of last year, the Bulldogs from Groningen. With our team fresh out of a win, it looked like it was going to be a very exciting game. It took 02:24 before the first goal was scored, after that they started adding up one after the other, resulting in a 17-2 home game. (8-2, 4-0, 5-0)

One of the refs got some footage from the first period and the first three goals.

First goal:

Second goal:

Third goal:

On the 20th of November, we’ll be visiting Groningen for the rematch.

We also have an amazing crowd that showed up to support the Icehawks, feeding them with energy after every play.  We hope to see everybody there for the next home game as well, the 27th of november against the Buccaneers from Utrecht. There’s already an even up on Facebook so go check it out!

After these scores these are the current standings:

If we continue to play the same way we’ve done in the first two games of the season the Icehawks look unstoppable and soon a 3rd championship trophy will be in our grasp.
