The Red Hawks field hockey team is proving their coach Steve Smith is right when it comes to building to the Kawartha Varsity Girls Field Hockey league playoffs.
On Thursday Oct. 11 the Hawks tied the visiting Crestwood Mustangs 0-0 to end the regular season at home in Haliburton.
Coming into play the Mustangs were 3-1-1 and in second place four points ahead of the Hawks.
The Hawks’ defence stymied the league’s top offensive team which has scored 14 goals in five games. The last time these teams squared off against one another the Mustangs won 2-nil.
This draw comes on the heels of the Hawks’ 4-1 win over Holy Cross.
The schedule has not been set for the Kawartha playoffs which are expected to be played south of Haliburton County.
Haliburton finishes the regular season with five points (1-3-2) behind the Mustangs. St. Peter Catholic Secondary School finished unbeaten with a record of 5-0-1 and are the top Kawartha seed.
