Submitted By OSGH on Friday, January 3, 2020
The Owen Sound Bantam BB Ice Hawks have been playing well and as of late they have strung together a nice 5 game win streak.

The first game was Dec 15th in Fergus to take on the Grand River Mustangs and the girls would put up 2 goals in the second & 4 more in the third period to win 6 to 0.

Kenzie Falls would open the scoring with assists going to Keirsten Henrich and Natalie Madill. Julia Sutherland would then score from Maggie Harvey and Natalie Mole.   Chesney Miller would open the third from Jolie Mcknight and Renayla Campbell.  Campbell would score a beauty going from one side of the neutral zone around all the Mustang players to the other side and dashing in by herself 1 on 1 with the goalie where she would tuck it up under the bar with Chesney Miller drawing the only assist.

Miller would get her second goal of the contest from Jolie Mcknight and Karissa Rasmussen and then Julia Sutherland would find the twine for her second of the game from Maggie Harvey and Lyndsay Cumming.

Sophia Fuller would play the first 2 periods in net and Alyssa Barnard would finish up the game as Owen Sound out shot them 27 to 10.

December 21st the girls traveled to Guelph to play a double header against the Gryphons and won the first one 4 to 1 out shooting them 33 to 6.

Alyssa Barnard played the first 2 periods and Sophia Fuller played the third period.

Jolie Mcknight would open things up with assists going to Karissa Rasmussen and Chesney Miller.  Lyndsay Cumming would score on a line change going down the wing and snapping one on the rush with assists going to Chesney Miller and Renayla Campbell.

Guelph would score late in the period to sit at 2 to 1.  

Mary Green would get her first of the season in the 2nd as she jumped on a juicy rebound in the slot after Jolie Mcknight set up Chesney Miller in the crease with a pretty pass and then Lyndsay Cumming would score her second of the game from Julia Sutherland and Maggie Harvey to round out the offence.

The second game of the day was a nail biter as Owen Sound found a way to come from behind and win 2 to 1.

Guelph would score in the first and have the lead going into the second period.  Heather Koch would score her first goal of the season with assists going to Chesney Miller and Renayla Campbell to tie it up at 1 apiece heading into the third.

The game was hard fought and Guelph was skating well, but with 14 seconds left in the game, Kenzie Falls would take a pass from Heather Koch and go down into the opposing end, spin in 360 fashion on the left side and find Chesney Miller heading towards the net with a beautiful back door pass in which she would one time to win the game and finishing an outstanding effort by Falls!

Owen Sound out shot them 23 to 9 but Guelph put up 7 first period shots.  Alyssa Barnard played the first period and Sophia Fuller the final 2 for the victory in net.

The next day the girls traveled to Mount Forest to play the Rams and would win 2 to 0.

Sophia Fuller played this game entirely stopping all 12 shots she faced as OS out shot them 20 to 12.

Julia Sutherland would score in the first period with assists going to Justine Claire and Natalie Mole.  Keirsten Henrich would score the insurance in the third with a nice passing play on the rush from Julia Sutherland and Natalie Madill.

Finally the girls would get a home game again on December 29th hosting the Guelph Gryphons and winning 2 to 0.

Karissa Rasmussen would score the winner a minute into the 3rd period off a face off from Chesney Miller to Jolie Mcknight to Rasmussen.

Mcknight would then score an insurance marker with just under 5 minutes to go on a pretty passing play from Chesney Miller and Karissa Rasmussen.

Alyssa Barnard would get the win between the pipes as the Ice Hawks out shot them 20 to 6 for the victory.

The Ice Hawks started their regular season with a record of 4-2-2 and since have went 8-1-0 to move into first place in the Central West Division 2 pts ahead of the Waterloo Ravens.  They have accumulated 44 goals for while only giving up 17 against in 17 games played.

Next action for the Bantam BB Ice Hawks is this Sunday, Jan 5th as they play host to two games with the Cambridge Road Runners.  First game is at 12:15pm and the second is at 4:00pm, both at the Julie McArthur Regional Rec Centre.

Cambridge sits in third place with a game in hand and did mount a third period comeback as they defeated the Ice Hawks 4 to 3 after being down 3 to 1 in their only meeting of the season back on November 2nd.

The following weekend will see the Waterloo Ravens visit the Rec centre at 2:45pm on Saturday, Jan 11th.
