Hawks Bounce Back, Defeat Atoms for 1st District Win!
The Hawks had played two very tough opponents over the past 5 days, but those endeavors of perseverance were rewarded with a convincing victory over their Gunston District rivals: The Atoms of Annandale HS. Hayfield jumped on the Atoms off the opening faceoff, when Fr. Joe Weinburgh (4 goals), won the opening face-off, pushed the ball down into the Atoms defensive zone. After a missed shot, Fr. Jack Nugent (2 goals, 1 assist) found a cutting So. Luke Jette (3 goals), for a quick goal, just 25 seconds into the game. Hayfield would never trail in this game, establishing a 7-1 lead after the 1st 12 minutes. The Hawks would shut out the Atoms for next 24 minutes, surrendering two 4th quarter goals, eventually winning 13-3!!
Sr. Captain Thorsten Muehlbauer (2 goals, 2 assists) added to his team high scoring totals (13 goals, 3 assists, 16 points). Jr Goalie/Captain Aiden Freeland (22 saves, now has 91 saves in 5 games: averaging 18.5/game). Sr. Joey Page (1 goal, 1 assist), and Jr. Connor Murphy (1 goal, 1 assist, 6 ground balls) both added meaningful contributions. The Hawks Defense (led by Jr. Marcus Short, with 3 ground balls, and several take away checks) set the tone, spurring the Hawks to victory!
