EXETER —  The Exeter Hawks have gotten off to a strong start this season, with four wins so far and their only loss being to Aylmer.

The Hawks started off the weekend on the right foot by defeating the Thamesford Trojans 10-2 on Sept. 30.

Exeter’s Macgregor  Allen started off scoring in the first period and after that, things just kept going Exeter’s way with further goals by Max Bannon, Evan Hayter, Liam Melady, Jonathon Frook, Nolan Koetsier, Troy Kennedy and Joe Mathonia.

On Oct. 1, the Hawks took on the North Middlesex Stars and won 4-2. Hawks Conner Drager scored first in the first period, assisted by Frook and Melady. Austin Carter scored again for the Hawks on a power play, assisted by Bannon and Frook.

In the second, Exeter’s David Norris and Melady made the final scores for their team.

A scoreless third period followed before the game ended.

As good as Exeter’s record is so far this season, the Hawks are still only sitting in fourth place in the PJHL Yeck Division standings.

League favourites the Dorchester Dolphins are currently in the lead on an undefeated five team winning streak, with Aylmer and Lambeth close behind.

The Hawks and the Dolphins will clash Oct. 7 at the South Huron Recreation Centre. The support of every cheering fan could make the difference as these two top tier teams try to tear each other down.
