Hats Off to Norkeh in Hawks' OT Victory

By Willie Monteiro, 02/12/12, 2:24PM CST


Hat Tricks are rare & elusive, but Newhon Norkeh had the magic Saturday afternoon against Irondale, putting three nice ones past the Knights in a high scoring affair that the Hawks were able to win in overtime. Things are coming together for the Junior who's season has been plagued by a lot of penalty minutes.  His line is on fire, scoring seven out of eight goals in two straight victories for Cooper.

Joe Lavalier got the game winner off a nice feed from Dustin Schultz.  A well placed shot just inside the right post led the jubilent Hawks to a hog pile in the corner to celebrate the win that spoiled Senior Night for Irondale.

The Hawks have two regular season games left, then it's off to Sections where they will probably face-off against Minneapolis on the 21st in a bid to advance against the #1 seed in Section 6AA.
