Ice Hawks best Ice Dawgs, again


February 19, 2020

After a three-game series against the Glasgow Ice Dawgs last week, the Havre Ice Hawks added three more wins to its record on the year and put on a show. As the postseason inches closer, the Ice Hawks looked to pick up some more wins on the year.

And Havre grabbed its fourth win over Glasgow Sunday, beating the Ice Dawgs 4-1 in the Havre Ice Dome. The Ice Hawks put up a big battle both offensively and defensively, keeping Glasgow at bay to add another home victory to the year.

Havre head coach Barry Brownlee was proud of what his team accomplished on the ice Sunday to beat the Ice Dawgs.

"The kids played really hard," Brownlee said. "They worked together to bring home another win on the home rink."

Offensively, standouts like Bridger and Jocelyn Staples, Dexter Beck, Donovan McLain and Tavish McLean helped put up a great game against Glasgow, while defensive standouts made a huge effort to keep Havre ahead in the game.

One defensive player stood out throughout the game though. Stephen Preputin has been an all-around good player for the Ice Hawks this year, often scoring a goal in matches.

But this time around, Preputin played a big portion in the defensive stand, doing his part to give Havre the home win. Brownlee was glad to see Preputin put forth excellent work and described his efforts Sunday.

"Stephen Preputin was the big star of the game," Brownlee said. "He filled in our goalies shoes for the first time this season and made 26 saves."

The win at home sets up the Ice Hawks up for some promising wins in the future. Next up, Havre heads down to Flathead in March to play the Fusion, while the state tournament is getting closer.
