Warhawks victorious in senior night game against Freedom 4-1

Following a ceremony recognizing the 4 senior members of the Warhawk varisty squad, the Warhawks quickly started a "the battle of the birds" against the Freedom Eagles. Just 23 seconds into the first, senior Juston Shayne tipped in a perfectly aimed shot from the point by freshman defender Justin Machovina. Building off that momentum senior Jay Stephens blasted in a pass from senior captain Jason Calem. Sophomore defender Nick Willey capped off the first period with an end-to-end rush down the boards and then a back-hand into the Eagles net catching their goalie completely by surprise. The Eagles mounted a brief come-back attempt in the second, scoring their only goal. Junior Luke Pohlman answered that by knocking in a Warhawk goal from right in front of the net, assisted by junior Jeffrey Hunter. Just one game remaining against Langley in the Warhawk's regular season on Friday 2/16. Based on current rankings, the Warhawks will advance to the playoffs which start on Friday 2/23.

Warhawks prevail against McLean 4-2

The Warhawk varsity beat McLean 4-2 in a very close game on Fri 1/19. Although the Warhawks got off to a lead in the first with a goal from sophomore Keegan Sweeney, assisted by senior Jay Stephens. That lead evaporated with two unanswered goals from the Highlanders. The Warhawks seem to always play their best when coming from behind and this game was no exception. Down 1-2 at the end of the second, the Warhawks rallied in the third, pelting the McLean goalie with a barrage of shots. Sophomore Will Albrittain tied up the score 2-2 by knocking the puck in right in front of the net as he was being pushed over by a Highlander defenseman. He was assisted by senior Jay Stephens and sophomore Zach Helfant. The Warhawks moved into the lead with senior Jay Stephens' 1-timer rocket, assisted by junior Luke Pohlman's pass from behind the net. Senior captain Jason Calem capped off the victory by rushing between two McLean defenders for an empty net goal. The Warhawk varsity doesn't play again until Sun 2/4 @ 8:20 pm in Ashburn (unfortunately right during the super-bowl)

Warhawks sustain injuries in 5-2 win over Woodgrove/Clarke

The Warhawks got off to a very rough start against Woodgrove/Clarke. Woodgrove/Clarke managed to drive into the Warhawk zone off first puck drop and score in first 20 seconds. Woodgrove followed that with another goal half way into the first putting the Warhawks down 0-2. The Warhawks were able to regroup and tie up the game at tail end of first with goals from junior Sammy Thompson and sophomore Tom Hetherington assisted by sophomores Michael Crespy and TJ Ezzard. The Warhawks stepped up the offensive pressure in second with two additional goals from sophopmore Keegan Sweeney and junior Luke Pohlman assisted by junior Jeffrey Hunter and senior Jason Calem. Jason finished off the Warhawk scoring in the third with an assist from sophomore Nick Willey. Celebration of the win was dampened due to head injuries sustained by junior Johna Ezzard and sophomore Noor Scavotto following illegal boarding hits from a single Woodgrove player who ended up being ejected from the game.
