Great Performance for the Hawks in the PlayStation Cup
Submitted By Heidi Tawse on Monday, November 25, 2019
Atom Nomad Hawks faced elimination in the semi-finals game on Sunday, but they fought long and hard against some tough competition to advance to semi-final action.

The Hawks would end their first game in the tournament with a tie at 5 against the Toronto Shamrocks.  Rhet Sharp would walk away with a hat trick in this game that was full of excitement.  Joe Nieman and Elijah MacDonald would add the other two goals.  Assists from Kale Tawse, Malcolm Brooks (2) and MacDonald. 

Our next game the team would take on the Vaughan Rangers.  Teams were neck and neck during the play, but Joey Nieman would even the score when he was granted a penalty shot ending the game in a 1-1 tie. 

Saturday afternoon, after a busy morning touring the Raptors dressing room, training facilities, the Leaf’s dressing room and an impressive speech by Brenden Shanahan; the Hawks would continue their tying streak ending game three with a 2-2 tie against the Barrie Colts.  Hunter Bradbury would score the first goal for the Hawks from a sweet pass from MacDonald.  Lane Sharp tied up the game.  Assists from Brooks, Nieman, Sullivan Tait and Rhys Lawrence.

Quarter finals game action would see the team winning 3 to 2 over the Ted Reeve Thunder allowing the team to advance to the semi-finals.  Lane Sharp would open the scoring for the Hawks and Nieman would land another two.  Assists from Nieman, Logan Fonger, Lane and Rhet Sharp.

A tough loss in the semi finals would be the result of the final game for the team.  Although the score board reflected a 4 to 1 loss it truly did not capture the heart of the play by the team.  This by far was the team’s best performance of the tournament, but they just couldn’t maximize their scoring chances.  Lane Sharp would score the lone goal of the game and it would be assisted by his brother Rhet.

Both Mason Taylor and Owen Curran had incredible performances in their net duties throughout the tournament.  As integral parts of the team they both showed grit and mental strength throughout the tournament.

Hawks return to regular season action this Thursday evening when they travel to take on the Peterborough Petes.  Saturday they will take on Clarington Toros and Sunday they host Whitby Blue at the Duncan McDonald arena at 12:30pm.
