Hawks basketball team gains experience in Renfrew

The following are HHSS sports briefs for the week ending Dec. 1.

Congratulations to the senior Red Hawks basketball team on an impressive performance at the Renfrew Invitational Tournament. The squad came out flying in the first game against host school Renfrew and quickly built a 13-0 lead. Our tenacious Red Hawks defence was too much for Renfrew to handle. Final score HHSS 60 and Renfrew 19. In the second game we faced a big and feisty team from Espanola. After losing Kyle Cooper to an injury in the first minute the squad dug deep for Cooper. The game was tight until the end but Espanola pulled away in the last four minutes for the victory. In our third game against Rideau the Red Hawks were down by eight in the final quarter and had a chance to make it close but the shots just wouldn’t fall for us.

The Red Hawks hockey team improved their record to two wins and one loss after a gruelling double-header on Thursday Nov. 30 at the Kinsmen Civic Centre in Peterborough. The Red Hawks defeated Crestwood 3-0 on goals by Carter O’Neill Owen Gilbert and Jacob Haedicke. Hawks netminder Jaxson Campbell earned the shutout. Assists went to Lucas Haedicke Desi Davies Josh Boice Benn Macnaull and Trevor Turner.
In the second game the team was defeated 3-0 by St. Mary’s from Cobourg.
