Hawks ‘2’ take to ice for the first time this season.

Blackburn Hawks 2 V Bradford Bulldogs

The ‘Blackburn Hawks 2’ was back in action on Saturday against the Bradford Bulldogs. The fixture started out as an even match but the Hawks 2 weren’t able to match the strength and depth of the Bulldogs.

The first goal came from Bradford in the opening two minute; then the game evened out for a while until Blackburn leveled the score line with a goal from Joe Charlton #68 assisted by Sean Jones #27. Blackburn then took the lead with another goal, and assist by the pair. The period ended on a high for Bradford with them taking a lead of 2-5 into the period break..

When the Second period started, Bradford came and played at a quick tempo and kept Blackburn at bay. Blackburn were  unable to get anything going. But again the  Bulldogs ended the period on another high with them taking a 2-10 lead into the interval.

The third period the game seemed to even out with both teams playing some nice hockey, but yet again Bradford took their chances an bag another three goals. In the last five minutes Hawks 2 managed to score their third goal, coming from Owen Woods #91, assisted by Wesley Nixon #97 and Daniel Room#25.

Not the result that Blackburn wanted but a solid start against a very strong Bradford team.

The MVP’s for the game went to;

Bradford Bulldogs- Tomas Mitrik

Blackburn Hawks 2- Joe Charlton
