HADLEY HAWKS ADVANCE TO FINALS WITH 59 - 0 WIN


With Exerts on the Game / Comments By: Jared Crozier, Editor http://sensshot.com



The Hadley Hawks defence returned 2 interceptions for touchdowns in the first quarter as they swarmed Mont Bleu to the tune of a 59-0 win.  After John Mahoney had gotten the Hawks on the board with a 21 yard touchdown run on the game's opening drive, Oli Holder returned a pick 70 yards on the ensuing Mont Bleu drive.  The defence didn't rest there, and on the very next Mont Bleu possession, Carter Bowers snagged a tipped pass and took it back 20 yards to make it a 24-0 game after the first quarter. Chris Disher recovered a fumble and Eric Guimont had a late interception to make it 4 takeaways for the Hawks defense on the day.


If that was the kind of day it was for the Hawks defence, their offence was equally formidable.  They found the end zone 4 more times and added a Brandon Forcier field goal for good measure as they once again put the game out of reach early and kept the throttle down.  Bowers added a touchdown run and a late game TD reception for another three touchdown day, while quarterback Colby Fisher found Isaac Nesbitt for a 59 yard score and then ran one in from 61 yards himself before leaving the game.  He gave way to Ryan Kane, who saw his first action at quarterback this season. Kane completed both of his pass attempts, one to Forcier for 33 yards and then finding Bowers for a 14 yard score on the last play of the game.


After the game, coach James Price addressed how he kept the team focused, knowing despite the Hawks' dominance in the regular season, anything can happen in a single elimination game.  "We had a great week of practice, and we just remind the players that they are facing the best offence, or the best defence, in the league every day."

 

The win means the Hawks advance to the final, in search of their fourth straight championship.  They will face the Hormisdas Gamelin Tigres in the title game set for Saturday, November 8th at 9am at Mont Bleu stadium.   The Tigres advanced with a 44-12 win over Haute Gatineau on Sunday.

HADLEY HAWKS COMPLETE A PERFECT REGULAR SEASON

Mackenzie Thibodeau had two defensive scores, one on a fumble recovery and one on an interception return to help lead the Hadley Hawks to a 65-0 win over the Nicholas Gatineau Phenix on Sunday morning.


Carter Bowers also had another outstanding game, and his 4 touchdowns (3 rushing, 1 receiving) set the school record with 29 majors on the season.  John Mahoney and  Zach Malesevic also scored rushing majors for the Hawks, who were dominant in all aspects of the game.  Brandon Forcier, who was a force kicking converts all season, finally got a chance to extend the range of his leg.  He kicked a 23 yard field goal in his first attempt of the season, while missing from 39 yards late in the game.


Thibodeau got the Hawks on the board during the Phenix' opening drive of the game, pouncing on a loose ball in the end zone after a high snap got over the quarterback's head.  It was the first series of a complete shutdown by the Hawks defense, who actually held the Phenix offense to negative total yards on the day.  It was the second straight shutout for the Hawks, and third of the season.


The short field provided by the defense helped the offense be productive once again, with Colby Fisher operating with fluid efficiency.  The Hawks continued to implement new plays right to the end of the regular season, trying new things and new formations with different personnel.


 Rookie Running Back Jacob Grant-Dallaire had the longest run of the day for the Hawks, breaking down the sideline for a 44 yard jaunt, and was one man away from taking it to the end zone.


After the game, coach James Price singled out guys like Grant-Dallaire, who might not have seen as much action as they would have liked, for sticking with it.  "Guys have understood as a grade 7 that you have to put your time in and develop.  Even if you get in for 2 or 3 plays or 10 or 20, it is what you make of it."


The Hawks moved to 8-0 in the regular season, and now that is in the past as the team looks ahead to the semi-final, scheduled for Friday Oct 31st at 1:00 pm on Fisher Field (Hadley).  It is now win or go home, so the regular season record means nothing and all remaining teams have a clean slate.  The work that was put into the regular season by the entire team will carry over even if the scores don't.

HAWKS SHUT OUT MONT BLEU 64-0

The Hadley Hawks have had some tremendous performances in the first 6 games of the season, but they saved perhaps their best for the first game of “Pink Week”.


Sporting their Pink Jerseys in support of Breast Cancer Awareness, the Hawks put on a clinic as they were firing on all cylinders against the club from Mont Bleu. 


Carter Bowers was the star once again, rushing for 4 touchdowns and catching another TD pass for a total of 5 majors in leading the Hawks to a 64-0 win on a muddy Fisher Field. 


Bowers had 206 yards rushing on 5 carries, including touchdown gallops of 45, 21, 55 and 60 yards.  Quarterback Colby Fisher was 4 for 5 passing for 72 yards and two touchdowns, one to Bowers and one to Isaac Nesbitt, while running for one TD himself.  Shakeem Parkes had the other Hawks major, on a 21 yard run.  “Efficient” was once again the word of the day, as the Hawks needed just 16 offensive plays to score their 8 touchdowns.


That is because of the short field provided by the defense.  That unit allowed just 35 total net yards in the entire game, and they had the Mont Bleu offense moving backwards until the final drive of the game, where they moved the ball 44 yards before time ran out on their attempt to break the Hawks shutout. All in all, the Hawks defense stopped 22 Mont Bleu offensive plays for either a loss or no gain.


The Hawks extended their quest for a perfect season, improving their record to 7-0, with one game left before the playoffs begin.  They will once again wear their pink uniforms when they host the Nicolas Gatineau Phenix on Sunday morning at 10:00 am.


Coach Price addressed the Pink Game and credited the players past and present for asking for the game and raising the money themselves. 


As for the game itself, he was pleased with the performance, but “there were a couple of times where we missed blocks, but we came out pretty healthy, and that is a big help for us.”


Price also mentioned that Carter Bowers is “chasing a school record, just three touchdowns away from the record 28 touchdowns set by Baily Villeneuve-Wint. At the rate he is going, Bowers could get that record on Sunday.

HAWKS CONTINUE TO ROLL WITH 6th STRAIGHT WIN

It was their toughest test to date, and for the first time this season they found themselves trailing at any point in a game, but the Hadley Hawks stepped up and met the challenge of the Hormisdas Gamelin Tigres and left with a 56-18 win.  The first place Hawks improve their record to 6-0 while the 2nd place Tigres fall to 4-2, with both of their losses coming at the hands of Hadley.



The conditions of the field and the rainy day meant that the game was decided primarily on the ground, with neither team attempting much of a passing attack. That strategy suited the Hawks fine, as Carter Bowers ran for 4 touchdowns, with Ryan Kane adding 3 and quarterback Colby Fisher 1.

 


The Hawks got an early wake-up call, with the Tigres returning the opening kickoff 80 yards for  a touchdown, the first time Hadley fell behind at any point this season.  Hadley responded with a 4 play, 60 yard drive culminating in a 37 yard run by Bowers, and the Hawks never looked back.  

 


The Hawks ever-evolving offense added a few new wrinkles, and as a result had some challenges with getting the snap to the quarterback's hands.  However, on a couple of occasions Fisher was able to avoid the seemingly inevitable sack and actually scramble to make some positive yards on broken plays.



While the Hawks' offense was continuing to roll, the defense also held firm, allowing just 1 touchdown drive early in the second half to a strong offensive unit.  They didn't create any turnovers but got to the Buckingham quarterback and sacked him 4 times.   The Tigres other score came on a 98 yard kickoff return.  

 


Coach James Price was respectful of the Tigres and the quality of the team they put on the field. "It was a great challenge for us.  We kept most of our starters in for a reason.  These guys are a strong team as a whole." Price said, and added "I think we got better as a team, because of the challenge."



As the teams sit 1-2 in the standings, there is a definite possibility, if not probablility, that these two teams might just meet for a third time this season, this time in the Championship final.  Before getting to that point, however, the Hawks have 2 games left in their regular season, the first one coming on Tuesday, October 21st against Mont Blue at Fisher Field for its Breast Cancer Awareness Annual Fundraising Game.  




HADLEY HAWKS REMAIN UNBEATEN WITH 56-20 WIN

The Hadley Hawks football team kicked off the second half of their season the same way they started and ended the first half of their season - with a convincing win.


Facing the undermanned Haute Gatineau club that they had beat just 9 days earlier, the Hawks played a solid and consistent all-around game in beating them 56-20.

 

Carter Bowers led the way once again with 4 touchdowns - 2 on the ground, 1 in the air and for good measure ran back the opening kickoff of the second half for a 77 yard touchdown.


Hadley continued their big-play offense, creating 313 total yards of offense on just 15 plays.  Quarterback Colby Fisher was 2 for 2 through the air, for 24 yards and two touchdowns.  Fisher found Bowers for an 11 yard score and then Keagan Glaza for his first touchdown reception of the season, a 13 yard strike.   Most of the offense came via a punishing running game, that saw the Hawks as a team run for 284 yards on 12 carries, for an average of  just under 24 yards per carry.  Zack Malesevic and John Mahoney had touchdown carries of 45 and 15 yards respectively in addition to Bowers' TD runs of 35 and 45 yards.


On the defensive side of the ball, it was a quality performance but one that showed the growth and development of the Maniwaki offense.  They managed some big plays of their own, with a run and a pass in excess of 60 yards. Mackenzie Thibodeau had the big play on the defensive side, with an interception that appeared destined for a touchdown return but was called back by a Hadley penalty during the run-back.

 

After the game, coach James Price credited the players desire to constantly improve, but also recognized the coaching staff, that volunteer their time to mold the team into shape and keep them on the right track year after year. 


With the win, the Hawks officially stake their claim to first place in the Benjamin division, finally having caught up to the competition in terms of games played.  The 5-0 Hawks travel to Buckingham on Friday afternoon to take on the 3-1 Tigres for the second time this season.  Hadley beat the Tigres 46-6 on September 27th, but Price warned at the time that they will be a much tougher team to beat the second time around.

HADLEY HAWKS DEFENCE LEADS THE WAY IN WIN OVER


GRANDE-RIVIERE


With exerts on the Game / Comments By: Jared Crozier, Editor http://senshot.com 

HadleyDefenceStandsTall

It hadn't been overly tested so far this season, but the Hadley Hawks defense, and most notably its secondary, sent a message on Saturday that if you try to focus on a passing game against them, they are going to make you pay.

 

Oli Holder and Chris Disher each had 2 interceptions and  Alex Belal added another as the Hawks steamrolled the Grande Riviere Cyclones 62-6.  Holder returned both of his picks for touchdowns while Disher and Belal each scored one major, accounting for half of the 8 Hadley touchdowns on the day.


The defense also stopped the run game, forcing the Cyclonse into negative yardage on the ground.  They stopped 4 of Grande Riviere's 5 rush attempts behind the line of scrimmage, allowing only 1 positive rush, for just 3 yards.

 

The Cyclones passed 36 times, with only 5 completions, equalling the number of Hawks interceptions.  The swarming Hawks defense also sacked the Cyclones quarterback 5 times for another 55 yards. 


The Hawks offense got a good view from the sidelines as they weren't busy due to the fact the defense accounted for so many scores themselves, but when they did get the opportunity they also implemented an effective and precision attack.  A season high 7 players got carries in a balanced effort that saw some get their first opportunities of the season to rush the ball.


Quarterback Colby Fisher completed 2 of 3 pass attempts for 73 yards, including a 60 yard pass to Carter Bowers, who extended his touchdown streak to 4 games.  Bowers also had a 1 yard touchdown run, while John Mahoney and Ryan Kane also found the end zone on the ground. 


It was a cold and rainy day and conditions were not great, but that is football and there wasn't much that didn't go Hadley's way.  The Cyclone's lone score came on a 75 yard kickoff return for a touchdown.

 

Coach James Price credited the defense and the depth of his team for the effort.  "It was definitely well defensively. Standing around for most of the second half watching them. We got everyone in to play and had some offensive guys in playing defensive line.  Thats what a lot if it is about, just getting them game time, whether it is on offense or defense. A lot of guys end up coming over, switch sides of the from offense to defense after their first year."


Holder, who was one of the defensive stars of the game, was pretty modest about his effort "we did really well (as a defense), got a lot of interception, and the offense played really well".


Hadley ran their record to 4-0 with the win. Halfway through the regular season they sit in 2nd place, but remain the only undefeated team. Based on the point system (5 points for a win and 2 for a loss), Grande Riviere sits in first place with a 3-3 record (21 points) but have played 2 extra games.  Hadley leapfrogged Hormisdas-Gamelin for second place, with 20 points.

 

The Hawks take to the field again on Thursday, hosting Haute Gatineau at Fisher Field for the second time in 9 days. Kickoff is set for 4:00 pm.

HADLEY HAWKS MOVE TO 3-0 WITH HOME FIELD WIN

HADLEYOFFENCEONTHEGO

The Hadley Hawks Football team opened the home part of their schedule with a tidy 48-13 win over the scrappy club from  C.E. Haute Gatineau (Maniwaki) on Tuesday afternoon.

 

It wasn't a Picasso performance by any means and the Hawks were their own worst enemy at times, committing a season-high 10 penalties for 100 yards and also dropping a handful of passes that they would normally catch.

 

However, the powerful and resilient Hawks didn't let those mistakes affect the outcome, as they scored 8 touchdowns en route to the victory.  Carter Bowers led the way once again, finding the end zone 3 times in 2 different ways.  He was on the receiving end of two TD passes from Colby Fisher, and also returned a punt to the Haute Gatineau end zone. 

 

Isaac Nesbitt reeled in the third of Fisher's 3 touchdown passes, while John Mahoney and Zach Malesevic each reeled off long touchdown runs of 53 and 60 yards respectively.

 

Overall, the Hawks put up over 270 yards in offense, with more than 200 of those yards coming on the ground in just 6 carries. Fisher completed 4 of 9 pass attempts for 63 yards and 3 touchdowns, without throwing an interception.

 

The defense was equally strong, as they held the Haute Gatineau rushing attack pretty much at bay.  The lone exception was one run where the speedy and elusive Haute Gatineau running back got to the outside and took it down the sideline for a nice 51 yard touchdown gallop.  The only other Haute Gatineau score came on the last drive of the game and was aided by a trio of Hadley penalties that allowed them to keep moving down the field. The defense held the Haute Gatineau offense to 0 yards passing and just 74 yards on the ground, and had 11 tackles for a loss or no gain. 

 

Haute Gatineau came in with a 1-2 record, and despite the fact they have with a limited roster size that saw a lot of players playing both ways during this game, they proved to be worthy adversaries.  Coach James Price credited the Haute Gatineau defensive line, stating "they are probably the best D Line we will face this season, besides our own, which is good for us to see."   That defensive line accounted for 2 blocked converts, but the Hadley offensive line held them at bay and protected Fisher throughout the game.

 

Price went on to say that there were "lots of positives", including the passing game and solid route running that is constantly improving game by game. "They just need to concentrate on looking the ball in, but in terms of where the guys are going on their routes it was much better than the last game." 

 

He attributed the sometimes unfocused play during this game to the short week (second game in 4 days), and intimated that he with the coaching staff needs to teach the team better in terms of how to better prepare for those situations.

 

Penalties were a factor, but not as much as they could have been as the Hawks bounced back from each offensive flag and scored touchdowns on 6 of their 7 possessions, with the other one cut short by the half-time break.

 

The Hawks will be looking to get to 4-0 this Saturday morning when they face a tough Grande Riviere (3-2) team in Aylmer (10:00 am kick-off) before a rematch with Haute Gatineau on Thursday October 9th at Fisher Field.

BOWERS POWERS HADLEY HAWKS TO SECOND STRAIGHT WIN

With exerts on the Game / Comments By: Jared Crozier, Editor http://senshot.com

The Hadley Hawks extended their season-opening streak to 2 games as Carter Bowers scored 4 touchdowns to lead the Hawks to a 48-6 win over the previously unbeaten (3-0) Hormisdas-Gamelin Tigres.

 

Bowers rushed for 3 touchdowns and also caught a pass from Colby Fisher for his 4th major as the Hawks ran their record to 2-0, with both wins coming on the road.   Zach Malesevic added a rushing touchdown and Isaac Nesbitt caught a 51yard toss from Fisher to round out the scoring. 

 

Kicker Brandon Forcier converted all 6 touchdowns and is a perfect 13 for 13 so far this season. 

 

Once again the defense played an outstanding game, with defensive back Eric Guimont recording an interception and also recovered a Tigres fumble.  Guimont credited the Tigres, "it wasn't an easy game.  Right off the start they got a couple of first downs. But we brought it back and got it in control".

 

The Tigres kept the ball on the ground, rushing the ball 41 times compared with only 8 pass attempts.  Credit needs to be given to the Hawks defensive line and linebackers for controlling the middle of the field and not allowing a potent rushing attack to gain much ground.

 

Quarterback Fisher did a good job of managing the game and controlled the pace of the play, directing a solid rushing attack that pounded the Tigres defense.  He completed 2 of 6 passes for 83 yards and 2 touchdowns, while throwing 1 interception.

 

It was not a game without miscues for the Hawks, however.  On the first offensive play of the game a penalty brought back what would have been a 53 yard touchdown run by Malesevic, and there were a couple of botched snaps and a missed pitch.  On the positive side, on each of the 3 fumbles, Fisher managed to recover the ball and scramble to make positive yards out of the broken plays.  Fisher said after the game that "there are still some things we need to work on in our backfield."

 

On the whole, it was a full team effort with every player on the roster getting involved and contributing by doing their assigned jobs.  Coach James Price was happy with the effort, but warned that the Tigres will be ready for the next encounter "That second game they are going to be coming out even harder and stronger. And then when you get to the playoffs they are like a whole different team.  They do a good job here of developing players."

 

Price was relatively happy with the effort during the game, especially since "we didn't have the greatest week of practice, we were a little off but at the same time you can tell that we still wanted it, and that is half the battle."

 

It is a busy week upcoming for the Hawks as they start to make up some of the games that were postponed early in the season.  They play their home opener Tuesday September 30th at 3:00 when they host C.E. Haute Gatineau, from Maniwaki and then travel to Grande Riviere in Aylmer on October 4th.

HADLEY HAWKS FOOTBALL DOMINANT IN SEASON OPENING

With exerts on the Game / Comments By: Jared Crozier, Editor http://senshot.com 

Hawkswininopener

It was a couple of weeks later than expected, but the Hadley Hawks Football team finally got their 2014 season officially underway and embarked on their quest for 4 straight championships on Friday afternoon when they paid a visit to Nicholas-Gatineau. To sum the game up in one word, the Hawks were efficient in dismantling their opposition 58-0. 


Right from the opening kick-off, the Hawks swarmed around the ball and barely allowed the ball to get into the Hawks' defensive half of the field for the entire game.   The defense did an outstanding job of shutting down the Nicholas-Gatineau offense, giving Hawks' quarterback Colby Fisher and his offense a short field to work with on each of their drives.


The Hawks were 7 for 8 in cashing in possessions for majors, with every drive (except for the final one when the game was called while the Hawks were driving again) finding the end zone.  Fisher passed for 97 yards and 3 touchdowns, to 3 different receivers while the rushing attack accounted for 4 more scores. 


Hadley needed to run just 16 offensive plays in the game, with 7 of them going for over 20 yards. 


On the defensive side of the ball, it was an outstanding effort all around as they allowed just 1 first down in the game, sacked the Nicholas-Gatineau quarterback three times, forced and recovered a fumble, blocked a punt and to top it all off they scored a late safety to put the club over the half-century mark. 


Head Coach James Price was pleased with the effort, stating after the game that "We came out pretty strong.  It was typical Hawks Football.  We keep doing it over and over again.  Its the hard work and dedication that they (the players) put in.  Its on all the coaches we have and the players buying in...We are happy with the win."


 

The Hawks season was delayed by two weeks because of unusual circumstances regarding their opponents that forced postponement, while Nicholas-Gatineau had already played 2 games (1-1 record) heading into this matchup.  When asked if the delayed start helped or hurt his club, Price said "We were worried about that, I'm not going to lie. I think it helped us develop the younger guys that haven't played yet, just to hit properly and be ready for the game.


Although dominant, there were still some things that could be worked on.  "Small, minor mistakes in the backfield and a couple of passing things that need to get straightened out this week before the next game." said Price.


There was one miscue in the backfield where a pitch went awry, but Hadley was able to recover the ball, and all they did after the 12 yard loss was put it in the end zone on the very next play.


Second year running back Carter Bowers was one of the stars of the game for the Hawks, and afterwards he stated that "We all played a great game, offense, defense and special teams." and referred to the strength of the rookie class as being a big part of the reason this team has and will continue to have success. Bowers had 3 carries for 42 yards and 2 touchdowns and also caught 1 pass for 31 yards and a TD.

The Hawks can enjoy this win for the weekend but get back to work Monday afternoon for practice in preparation for Saturday morning's game in Buckingham against Hormidas-Gamelin.  That should prove to be a tough matchup and the Hawks can really show what they are made of by coming away from that one with a 2-0 record.
