Coach’s quote: “The Hawks had a number of scoring opportunities throughout the game, but just couldn’t capitalize on them until the thrilling late-game winner. In our defence, centre-backs Lincoln Wilson and Kevin Ball stood tall all night, snuffing out countless attempts by Raymond to play a long ball for a breakaway. And even if he only had to make one diving save, this save from our goalkeeper Boissy was a great piece of advice on a good shot in the middle of the second period. – Scott Zipke of Hopkinton
