Half of the season is over: Icehawks stay strong at the top!

27th of November: Utrecht Buccaneers @ Icehawks

The Icehawks were playing well in this game, substituting the absent Victor Liang with our new Norwegian player Markus Hecl Øvili in the first line, who scored 6 goals. The game resulted in 12-0. A third shutout and fifth straight win this season.

After the game our coach Roger Provencher said the following about the game and the season so far:

“We played very well this game, but still have some points to improve on. We’re on the right track [for the championship] now and I hope we can keep up this level of hockey for the remainder of the season. Thanks for everything guys!”

2nd of December: Icehawks @ Amsterdam Thor

The Icehawks went to Amsterdam with mixed feelings, although Thor is currently in last place, they were able to win the game against Groningen. Furthermore the Icehawks had to play without some key players like Könönen, Machiels and Hecl Øvili. In the first period the Hawks had the upper hand, scoring 3-0. This changed after the first break, having trouble to pass the Finnish goalie and allowing two goals to be scored. The team managed to pull themselves together in the last period, scoring two goals early in the period and again on the empty net. Making the total score 6-3.

A reporter from folia wrote an article about the game (in dutch). The coach mentioned in the article isn’t our regular coach Roger Provencher, since he was not able to join us in Amsterdam.

Our next home game will be in 2017, on the 8th of January at the IJssportcentrum Eindhoven vs. The Hague Fire Birds.

Happy Holidays!
