The Hawks scored early Tuesday night at the ‘Cage’ and used the early momentum to secure a spirited 4-2 win over the Melville Millionaires.
Cole Fox opened the scoring under two minutes into the first meeting of the year between the SJHL teams, Artem Hrabovetskyi added a pair of power-play goals, and Evan Forrest notched his team leading ninth goal late in the second for the game winner.
Damon Cunningham was spectacular in goal for the Hawks making 32 stops on 34 shots.
Alex Bernauer chipped in with a pair of assists in the win.
The Hawks will hold their annual parent-billet weekend starting Friday when Yorkton visits the Centennial Arena. Saturday the Melfort Mustangs will make their first appearance in Nipawin.
Both games will faceoff at 7 p.m.
