Nighthawks cap season on winning note

Okanagan Nighthawks end their spring hockey season with a pair of wins

The Okanagan Nighthawks spring hockey team closed its season with two victories the weekend of May 23. The Nighthawks topped the B.C. Bolts from Langley 5-0 and 5-1. Goal scorers for the first game were Brodie Kenney with two, Mathis Preston, Jaxon Unruh-Ross and Liam Ruck.  Delainey Walton played phenomenal in net. In the second game, the Nighthawks played very strong defence and limited the Bolts chances.  Goal scorers were Ruck and Cole Beresford with two, Will Mohns and Kenney.

The previous weekend the Nighthawks were in Burnaby and won the BC May Madness AAA tournament. The Nighthawks tied the Abbotsford Heat 3-3 in the round robin and then faced them again in the final and won 5-4.

“This year’s team was a real special group,” said coach Rod Kenney. “They always worked hard and really stepped up in big games winning all three tournaments that we entered (Okanagan Nighthawks Ice Breaker, West Kelowna Round Table Challenge and BC May Madness). We finished with a 20-4-4 record overall.”
