Hawks End Regular Season With a Win on Senior Night

By Willie Monteiro, 02/18/12, 12:12PM CST


The Cooper Hawks have a lot to be proud of at the end of their season. They finished it up in classic fashion with Seniors scoring the goals on Senior Night. Jay Tonsager, Joe Lavalier, Tom Monteiro & Dustin Schultz crafted the four goals that gave them their 4-1 victory over the Vikings. Schultz got the #1 Star of the game with a three point performance.

The remaining seniors are Alex Johnson, Sam Morgen & John Lewis. All of them deserve congratulations for their hard work and perseverance.

The Hawks finished the season with 9 wins, 14 losses and a tie.  The highlight of the season was winning the holiday tournament in Silver Bay. The low point was a humiliating loss at the hands of the Red Knights. Through it all they were a cohesive team. Sure, there were squabbles and disappoinments along the way, but there were also the good times celebrating a few wins, reminiscing the overtime thrillers and the priceless locker room atmosphere that is privately theirs, but surely a source of great memories.

The road ahead is tough, with a play-in game next Tuesday up next, the Hawks will muster their "A" game to try to win and move on. There's a large brick wall after that if they move on.  Playing the #1 seed in section 6AA (Minnetonka) would not be the choice of any team in the state, much less Cooper. They'll take it one game at a time and do their best. 

Good luck Hawks!
