Colborne Hawks rallied for their first win of the season, a 4-3 victory over the Toronto Jr. Hockey Academy in Canadian International Hockey League action on Saturday.
Alex Bidwell scored the winner in the shootout to improve Colborne’s record to 1-8 and out of last place past the Sudbury Royals.
Toronto built a 3-0 lead on goals by Jamal Shears, Nolan Klumac and Dylan Doherty before Colborne found the back of the net with 17 seconds left in the second stanza when Lukas Majercik scored to make it 3-1.
John Rolfe brought the Hawks to within one goal when he scored midway through the third.
Bidwell then scored with 3:39 remaining to send it to overtime.
“We have been working hard this week and it paid off,” Bidwell said after the game.
“Very exciting win for all the players. The win shows hard work during the week at practice transfers into wins on the weekends,” said Colborne head coach Mike Jeschke.
