Nighthawks Midget AA team wins Silver Stick Qualifer
Submitted By Scott Pollard on Friday, December 16, 2016
The Nighthawk Midget AA team captured the regional qualifier in Pembroke, Ontario.   The Nighthawks posted a 4-0-1 record on route to winning the tournament for the second consecutive year.


The Hawks started off the tournament on Friday night with an exciting 4-3 win over a quick skating Hull Olympique.  The next morning the Ottawa Silver Seven battled our home side to a 4-4 tie in a fast moving game that featured end to end rushes and exciting offence from both teams.    Later Saturday night the Peterborough Jr. Petes played an inspired against the Nighthawks in the final round robin game.   The Petes drew the game to a 2-2 tie at 3:02 of the third period.   However, Northumberland pulled ahead to stay with 4:50 left in the third period and rounded out a 4-2 victory. Corey Saman led the scoring with a hat trick while Jarrett Desormeaux and Braden McGregor each added a pair of assists.

The semi-final game on Sunday morning featured a rematch with the Ottawa Silver Seven.  The game was even faster and more exciting than the first.   It was eventually settled 4-3 with 3:15 remaining in the second overtime period on a goal by Tanner Sheppard assisted by Noah Rogers.  Among the notable performances were two goals from Jarrett Desormeaux and standout goaltending by Mathew Foss.

With less than two hours rest the Nighthawks then faced the Kanata Blazers in the final.   The Blazers had also just finished an overtime victory over the Hull Olympique.    The final game was a tight checking affair with several good scoring opportunities for both sides.   In the end, the game was decided 1-0 with 1:23 left in the third period on a break away by Corey Saman, unassisted.   The stars of the game were the goaltenders of both teams, including Northumberland’s Max Carlson.  

The Nighthawk Midget AA’s currently sit 3rd in the Lakeshore loop with a 6-5-2 record.   Team members include Kyle Snyder, Isaac Kelly, Mack Kearns, Josh Tinney, Noah Rogers, Matthew Henderson, Noah Dickinson, Corey Saman, Tanner Sheppard, Kavan Dobos, Bo Sterling, Jarrett Desormeaux, Owen Bailey, David Torrie, Trevor Kennedy, Brayden McGregor, Mathew Foss and Max Carlson.

Coach Ray West said he was very pleased with the boy’s level of play and their desire to win.   It was one of the first times this year that we’ve been able to field our full roster this year due a series of injuries.  It bodes well for the balance of the season and the Silverstick finals.

The Midgets will travel to Sarnia to compete in the International Silverstick finals January 13-15, 2017.
