Ice Hawks fall to Ice Dogs

After winning four consecutive games at home, the Havre Ice Hawks high school hockey team was back on the road this past weekend, and unfortunately, were unable to duplicate that same success.

The Ice Hawks played both of their games this weekend in Bozeman, where they squared off against the Bozeman Ice Dogs A team. Both games took place on Saturday with the Ice Dogs winning each matchup. Bozeman took the first game by the score of 9-4 and the second, which was a much closer game, 5-3.

In the first game between the two teams, Bozeman outshot Havre 39-19. The advantage in shots proved to be a big reason for the five-goal differential. Yet, even in defeat, the Ice Hawks had plenty of bright spots including a 30-save performance from Josh Emge as well goals from Kyle Konesky, Jeffrey Ralph, and two from Alex Hanson. Konesky added two assists, while Hanson and Gavin Gunderson each finished with one.

In the second contest of the day on Saturday, the Ice Hawks led most of the way until the third period thanks in large part to goals from Konesky, Hanson and Blake Hanson. Konesky’s goal came on a penalty shot. Konesky also notched an assist on Blake Hanson’s goal. Yet, in the final period, the Ice Dogs managed to overtake the ice Hawks and, in the end, held on for the 5-3 win. Emge had another solid night, even in defeat after stopping 43 saves.

The Ice Hawks will be off this weekend. They will return to action on Feb. 7 when they travel to Kalispell to take on the Flathead Fusion.
