In what appears to have been the final visit of the Hawkesbury Hawks to the Glengarry Sports Palace, the Cornwall Colts handed the wayward squad a 4-2 loss, in Friday night CCHL action.

JD Pogue had three points for the winning side, including a pair of goals, while South Glengarrian Ethan Mulhearn found the net once, scoring what would stand as the game-winning marker. Justin McRae also scored for Cornwall, while additional assists went to E. Mulhearn, Tommy Tanner, David Poirier, and Brant Woodside, as Liam Lascelle got the win in net with 36 saves.

Early on, the Hawks struggled to find the target offensively, mustering just six shots on goal in the first period. By the midpoint of the game, the Colts were outshooting Hawkesbury 22-11. The second half of the contest saw the Hawks turn up the heat, but it wasn't enough.

With the loss, Hawkesbury's "home" record in Alexandria dropped to 3-2, after winning their first three at the Palace. Nonetheless, the Hawks remain in second place in their division. The team is hoping to return to its official home digs in January.

As for the Colts, the win last Friday night was the team's sixth in a row, as the club finds itself now third in the standings, just two points behind Hawkesbury.

We have a photo gallery from the Dec. 15 Hawks-Colts game available online here.
