The Havre Ice Hawks have struggled to find the win column in recent weeks, however, with a team from Salmon, Idaho, in town over the weekend, the hockey team got back into the winner's circle.

In two games, the Ice Hawks didn't just beat the Salmon Rapids, they dominated them. Havre won the first game Saturday night inside the Havre Ice Dome 11-3 and followed it up with another 10-5 victory Sunday.

In Saturday's contest, the Ice Hawks stormed out of the gates with seven goals in the opening period. Ethan Roberts scored three times, netting a hat trick in the first period, while Havre also got goals from Bridger Staples, Trent Shettel, Tavish McLean and August Eacker.

The Ice Hawks tacked on three more goals in the second period, as McLean found the back of the net again. Noah Kirsch also scored a goal for Havre in addition to a fourth goal from Roberts. In the third period, Cole Hanson became the seventh Ice Hawk to score in the eight-goal blowout. On top of his four goals, Roberts also contributed with three assists, although the team high in that category went to Staples, who recorded five assists. Kinzee Peterson also had a solid outing between the pipes, turning away 20 of the 23 shots she faced.

On Sunday, the Ice Hawks were looking to complete the two-game sweep of the Rapids and started fast again with three first-period goals, two from Shettel and one from McLean. In the second period, McLean scored twice more to record a hat trick. Roberts also scored his first goal of the game, as did Eacker. In the third, Roberts scored a short-handed goal for Havre, which got a fourth-goal from McLean and a goal from Kirsch, who scored for the second night in a row. Trennis Riley got the win at goalie for the Ice Hawks after notching 24 saves.

With the two wins, the Ice Hawks are now 4-6-2 on the season and are currently fifth in the MAHA standings with 12 points.
