Prem A Make It Three Into Grand Final

Sep. 6, 2014

On Thursday night, the Prem A team fought hard to re-group from its semi final loss to topple the Braves in a shootout and take the remaining spot in the Grand Final.

Going into the final series without AIHL reps Fitzgerald, Brown & Hall, coach Brown emphasised effort and the side jumped out to a 2-0 lead against the Demons Only to lose the lead and ultimately the game in overtime.

With a game plan to stifle a rampant Braves attack, the game was locked at 1-1 at the end of the regulation time.  OT couldn't decide a winner so a shootout was required.  Two goals to the Hawks to the Braves 0 with Holland being the man of the moment in net.  It was vintage "Bus stop" with Holland showing signs of why he was considered the best goalie in Australia and the leading goalie in IHV again.


With the Prem A advancing, it now makes three grand final contenders from the Hawks, with the C1 & C2 teams having advanced via wins in their semi final games.

A great result for the club so far, with the chance to challenge for the three separate championships as well as the club championship.


Best of luck to the players and coaches of the 3 sides in their GF's this coming week.
