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.
